- If old enough to vote, did you vote for Nixon?
- How did your opinion of Nixon change when the scandal broke?
- How did the Watergate scandal affect your perception of governmental power

    I was 40 when Nixon resigned.

    I did not vote for Nixon.

    My opinion of him sank even lower after the scandal broke.

    It confirmed what I already knew, that politicians may be crooks.
