Reader Poll: Economy Most Important Issue

moneyWell, I guess we shouldn’t be surprised.

We asked our readers which issue was most important to them in the upcoming midterm elections.

219 readers said that the economy and jobs were the primary issue for them, proving that the nation’s economic future is still a point of concern.

128 responded that education mattered most to them, which was a bit surprising given that some recent polls have listed it as the top issue among voters.

The all-encompassing “other” finished third with 58 votes while the environment/energy got 51.

Healthcare came in last with just 31 people saying it was the most important issue. So much for the “Obamacare Election”.

The full results are included below:

With the midterms approaching, what issue matters most to you?

  • Economy/Jobs (45%)
  • Education (26%)
  • Other (12%)
  • Environment/Energy (10%)
  • Healthcare (6%)

Total Voters: 487

  1. To be fair, One-Term Tommie has been VERY good at providing a certain kind of job: Out-of-state wildcatters who trash the land, commit crimes, send their paychecks out of state, and terrorize local drivers. And then leave once the leaky rigs have been drilled. LOTS of those temp jobs for non-Pennsylvanians. Jobs for local residents and taxpayers? Last in the East.
