Hallee on the Issues
With it being the second week of November, and Tuesday being election day in the United States, I thought I’d do a series of posts on my opinions on “the issues” that face Americans today. Then I discarded the idea, because I barely have time to get recipe posts up the way I like, and this isn’t a political blog – it’s a homemaking blog. But, when I was brainstorming for posts ideas, a friend on Facebook asked me to write a post on the Iraq War. It brought back my idea to do a series of “Issues” posts.
I did a search to see what the main issues are, and this is what I discovered:
CBS News Poll. Sept. 28-Oct. 2, 2011. N=1,012 adults nationwide. Margin of error ± 3.
“What do you think is the most important problem facing this country today?” Open-ended
Economy and jobs
Budget deficit/National debt
Moral values/Family values
Another poll I found said this:
CNN/ORC Poll. Aug. 5-7, 2011. N=1,008 adults nationwide. Margin of error ± 3.
“Which of the following is the most important issue facing the country today? The economy. The federal budget deficit. Health care. The situation in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya. Illegal immigration. Terrorism. Policies toward gays and lesbians.” Options rotated
The federal budget deficit
Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya
Policies toward gays, lesbians
Bloomberg National Poll conducted by Selzer & Company. June 17-20, 2011. N=1,000 adults nationwide. Margin of error ± 3.1.
“Which of the following do you see as the most important issue facing the country right now? Unemployment and jobs. Government spending. The federal deficit. Health care. The war in Afghanistan. Gas prices. Immigration. Taxes.” Options rotated
Unemployment and jobs
The federal deficit
War in Afghanistan
With Monday for the weekly menu, that would leave me four days to do posts. I thought I’d tackle the following: The War on Terror, illegal immigration, government spending/the Federal deficit and health care.
I look forward to, and encourage, other thoughts in the comments sections of these posts.
I’m so grateful for your visit, today.
