Leading questions can be very misleading

A lawmaker at the Capitol building in Atlanta Georgia once told me this, a couple years ago.

” If I ask individuals to name the 10 most pressing problems facing us today, diseases are rarely brought up. But if I ask individuals, and name almost any disease, if it’s important, almost all say yes.”

So leading questions, if you repeat the mechanics of it wrong, can be very misleading.

I don’t have any training concerning this type of thing, but I feel like I have a basic understanding, and I can see what he was talking about.
