In this study, the most important problem is looked at from around the world. Using data provided to us by the Comparative Study of Electoral Systems, the answer to the most important problem question, “What is the most important problem facing [insert country name] today?” was examined for countries around the world. The research found that some countries had radically different answers than those found in America and that these answers can be used to predict elections and determine the strength of a nation.
