US Presidential Candidate And The UFO Question

While discussing his plans to reform Social Security, Ohio Governor John Kasich brought up a curious query.

"Now there are more 18-year-olds who believe they have a better chance of seeing a UFO than a Social Security check," Kasich said.

True? Possibly, but in context, you see Kasich was referring to a poll in 1994, where quoted
"they would see a UFO than believed that Social Security would help them when they retired"

Its not surprising the US has its far share of UFO sightings, The National UFO Reporting Center, an online clearinghouse, documented 402 incidents in the month of February alone.

The Cato Institute also asked a similar question in 1999 of 18- to 30-year-olds and found that 43% think they'll see a UFO during their lifetime, but only 28% think they'll see a Social Security check.

Polls aside, this line of question isn't uncommon during a presidential race, just the previous month of December, Hilary Clinton responded to a question on the UFO topic and her answer with great enthusiasm "Yes, I'm going to get to the bottom of it".

But, I doubt the politicians will to share the truth on UFOs!
