Pew Research: Top issues for voters in 2012 election

Pew Research: Top issues for voters in 2012 election

Notice the bottom three issues are social issues.  For those politicians who love to use the phrase “what Americans want is…” they should take note.  Stop demonizing gay marriage, birth control and abortion.  “What Americans want” is to hear a civil discourse on the economy and jobs. 

Maybe now that Mitt Romney and his super-PAC have decimated his opponents he’ll start to talk about how he would like to create jobs rather than tear down the other guy.

I’d much rather hear specifics than general rhetoric and negative campaigning.  Put stuff out there that shows me why you’re the better choice.
