The question has arise in lecture (I'm a student) how to reconcile two
things that don't easily reconcile.

(1)  The total ionic charged within a cell balance out to zero.
(2)  The interior of the cell membrant is predominantly negative -
contributing to the passage of Na+ and K+.

It the center of the cell predominantly positive?  Or what?
