3. White Walkers v. Climate Change.

People were quite divided on the issue regarding what posed a bigger threat at the start of the GOT season. The results are:

4. Trump's Border Wall v. Wall in the North.

  • Trump's Border Wall-29%

Unsurprisingly, when people were asked which wall was more effective, The Wall in the North took the cake. This was supported by both parties who believed that the 700-foot wall of ice offered better protection than a steel slatted wall across the southern border.
