Question of the day

Aug 20, 2015

Our last question asked: What is the name that one Wall Street Journal writer is proposing Istanbul be called now? Catstantinople, after its prolific population of felines.

Congratulations to Lauren Weaver with Lehigh University for being the very first to answer that correctly! Honorable mentions go out to David Daniel (who doesn't think it will catch on), Charlotte LoBuonoMaureen MacGregor (who calls it "purrrty cute"), Mark Poepsel (who shares this corresponding video), Craig Pittman (who says the question immediately made him think of this), Karen BenezraCarrie GrayKen Walker and Eric Francis (who jokes "Take me back to Catstantinople, as They Might Be Giants put it!"). Shout out to Robin Epley, who suggested "'Not Constantinople,' thereby fulfilling the prophecy" and Margo Howard, who wishes it would be called Constantinople "again."

As for today's question, here it is: Who is the independent presidential candidate polling at 9 percent in the latest PPP poll from North Carolina?
