Most important issues facing 2012 Elections
According to a recent poll by Gallup, the most important issue facing the 2012 presidential election is the economy. 92 percent of all registered voters agreed that the economy is the most important issue to them. Messaging for the 2012 Presidential Election will focus on which candidate can better cure this country’s economic woes. Unemployment ranked as the second most important issue with 82 percent feeling that unemployment is very important. The federal budget deficit, which, according to Gallup’s polling, was ranked as very important by 79 percent of registered voters. President Obama and the eventual Republican nominee will compete for independent and undecided voters on these issues. President Obama will hammer home the private sector job growth that our country has seen under his watch, while his Republican counterpart will focus on the lethargic recovery that our country is experiencing. It is likely that whomever’s message better resonates with the American people will be President come January 2013.
