6.    Now, thinking about international issues, I want you to rate on a scale of zero to one hundred how
      much international issues abroad impact you personally. Zero means the you feel international
      issues have no impact at all, one hundred means you feel international issues have a great deal of
      impact on you personally, and fifty is the midpoint and means you are neutral. You can choose
      any number from zero to one hundred.
