Economy, Jobs Most Important Issue: DeLauro Poll Finds

Energy and education are a distant second and third in the Congresswoman's poll.

It's all about jobs.

The overwhelming majority of respondents to U.S Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro's latest poll say that the economy and jobs are the most important issues facing the country.

In the poll, posted on the Congresswoman's website, she asks the question: What do you think is the most important problem facing the country?

Here are the results, as of Sept. 21:

  • Economy/jobs - 70 percent
  • Energy - 8 percent
  • Education - 7 percent
  • Health care - 6 percent
  • War/terrorism - 5  percent
  • Poverty - 3 percent

Respondents to that poll are not alone. The results mirror a CBS News/New York Times poll. And Americans are increasingly pessimistic about the country's economy, a USA Today survey found.

We want to know what you think, so we pose the same question in our poll:

Man. This is nonsense. Cite your source. Which year? Years? You do know that Rosa has been a Congresswomen for 22 years? And you do know that the Republicans have been in charge of the House in this session? It is highly unlikely any Democrat will get a chance to introduce legislation with Boehner as Speaker.
