In other words, it’s the cronyism, graft, fraud and criminal activity, stupid. FedUpUSA has been saying this and telling anyone and everyone who even contemplates running for office that the people are ‘fedup’ with the criminal cartel in Washington DC. Strange, how despite polls like this one, and the people making their voices heard as loud as they possibly can, there are few candidates who even mention the corruption. Seems to me that too many candidates are still entirely out of touch or running for their own selfish ambitions. And if you’re one of the people who think the fraud and corruption is an enormous issue, you’re part of the problem if you continue to vote for the ‘lesser of two evils.’ During his 2008 campaign, McCain wouldn’t even mention the corruption, despite being told repeatedly this is what voters were concerned about. Obama hasn’t done one thing about the corruption, other than to make it worse (Solyndra anyone?). It is doubtful Romney will do a single thing either, and hasn’t seen fit to mention any of the massive ongoing global financial scandals (LiEbor anyone?). Wake up America! It’s time to take out the trash!
A clear majority of Americans polled want whoever wins the presidential election to create well-paying jobs and while combating Inside-the-Beltway government corruption and waste, according to a USA/Gallup survey released yesterday.
A whopping 92 percent of Americans polled said that the next POTUS should prioritize creating good jobs, with almost half — 48 percent — rating it as “extremely important,” according to the poll which asked the particpants to rank the top 12 issues in order of importance for either President Barack Obama or Mitt Romney to address.
The poll was conducted between July 19 and July 22 with a sample of 1, 030 likely voters. The margin of error is 4 percent.
Reducing corruption in the federal government came as the second highest priority chosen on, with 87 percent of the surveyed Americans saying they want the next president actively combat abuse and waste.
Not surprising, 85 percent of those polled said that ensuring the sustainability of Social Security and Medicare should be one of the top priorities for the next president, while 83 percent said improving the American public schools is a top priority.
Other priorities on the list included “setting high moral standards for the nation,” “making healthcare available and affordable,” “overcoming political gridlock in Washington,” and ” making college education available and affordable.”
Fifty-two percent said the next president should prioritize dealing with environmental concerns, including global warming, while 49 percent said increasing taxes on wealthy Americans should be a top priority.
Supporters of President Barack Obama (Democrats and liberal independents), who is seeking reelection, and the Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney (Republicans, conservatives, Libertarians and moderate independents) usually disagree on how to deal with the major problems facing the country, but they both rated job creation and reducing government corruption among their top priorities for the next president, Gallup officials said in their report.
