Gallup Poll: Americans Don't Give a Crap About Pet Lib/Media Issues
 
Surprise!

Despite dominating Washington’s attention, voters say the issues of gun control and immigration reform should take a back seat to efforts to bolster the economy and create jobs, according to a new poll.

A new Gallup poll released Wednesday finds 86 percent of voters saying Congress should make its top focus job creation, with 86 percent saying Congress should prioritize work on improving the economy.

Those two issues are the top concerns for voters, with gun violence and an overhaul of the nation’s immigration reform laws at the bottom of the list of 12 priorities.

:welcome: :clown:

I'm not surprised. People always care most about the economy or in some cases a big war if a lot of soldiers are dying.

What we've been fed by Washington and their media lapdogs these past months (since the inauguration in specific) is a bunch of bread and circuses, though in this case minus the bread. It has allowed Washington to totally tank serious discussion of economic matters focusing instead on shifting between largely manufactured anti-gun hysteria, feel-good silliness about gay couples wanting to marry, and of course appeals to pity for illegal aliens who have come here to undercut American labor because the countless employers who prefer to exploit them get away with it scot-free.

Typical nyuk - cherry-picking the part of the data that he feels supports his dogma.

You're not all "there," are you?

Retard: What you just did was ignore the first paragraph of the original Gallup Poll page which repeats what I said about low priority.

From YOUR source, above YOUR graphic:

PRINCETON, NJ -- Americans put reforming immigration and reducing gun violence -- the focus of much of the attention on Capitol Hill in recent weeks -- at the bottom of a list of 12 priorities for Congress and the president to address. Americans instead say leaders in Washington should give highest priority to jobs and the economy, followed by making government work more efficiently and improving the quality of education.


While you accuse me of cherrypicking and omitting data, you repost my original statement from its original source, thus verifying what I originally said was accurate, while you accuse me of cherrypicking.

Well, now we know why you didn't explain HOW I was cherrypicking data. You just pulled that **** whole-cloth out of your ass.

What exactly IS your problem?

Unlike the GOP, obama can do multiple things. That includes gun laws, immigration, and jobs. The GOP? They focus on benghazi and filibusters. yay.

Obama renews focus on jobs, economic growth with Texas trip
(Reuters) - President Barack Obama flew to Texas on Thursday to put his focus back on job creation and economic growth after concentrating on gun control legislation and immigration reform in recent months.

Obama is due to hold events around the country to draw attention to his efforts to boost economic growth through jobs that benefit the middle class, a White House official said.

The trip comes as a poll shows Americans say what they want most from politicians in Washington is job creation and action that will help the economy grow.

In a visit to the Austin, Texas, area, Obama was due to visit Applied Materials, which makes semiconductors and other technology, and a high school focused on math and science. He also will meet residents and entrepreneurs.

The jobs tour follows some policy frustrations for Obama. He failed to persuade Congress to accept expanded background checks for gun buyers, a disappointing setback to his efforts to toughen gun rules after the December murders of 20 children and six adults at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut.

He also is at an impasse with congressional Republicans over a deficit reduction deal that he insists should include higher tax revenues, which Republicans oppose.

The president does appear to be making headway in his efforts to change immigration laws to open a path to citizenship for a portion of the 11 million people who are in the United States without proper documentation. However, final legislation is months off.

In the meantime, a Gallup poll released Tuesday found 86 percent of those surveyed this month ranked creating jobs as their top priority for action by Congress and Obama, tied at 86 percent with helping the economy grow.

Lower on the priority list were reducing the federal deficit at 69 percent, reforming the tax code at 59 percent, reducing gun violence at 55 percent and reforming immigration at 50 percent.

Hey yuk yuk, check out this gallup poll.

Americans' Top Critique of GOP: "Unwilling to Compromise"
Democrats criticized for spending too much
by Lydia SaadPRINCETON, NJ -- As Republican leaders openly scrutinize their party after a 2012 election that was disappointing for them, rank-and-file Republicans, independents, and Democrats voice the same primary criticism of the GOP: it is "too inflexible" or "unwilling to compromise." When asked to say what they most dislike about the Republican Party, 26% of Republicans, 17% of independents, and 22% of Democrats offer this critique -- leading all other mentions.

Rigs, then why is Obama quiet on the economy while he loudly beats the feel-good gay marriage drum and pretends that gun control and amnesty are both widely popular and supported? Why is this going on?

What about Benghazi do you find offensive? What about filibustering trash legislation do you find offensive?

LOL same ole crap. Obama talks about jobs, then says he needs another stimulus to create them. Ummm we saw that waste already and aren't going for it again. He can forget about another stimulus it ain't happening. He can forget about raising taxes again because it ain't happening. He is going to lose more seats in the midterms and become a lame duck.

You create jobs by reducing govt regulation, reducing tax on corps and small businesses. You don't create them by going to texas and giving a speach about how you want to create more jobs. What a joke.

cutthemdown 05-09-2013 01:39 PM

Also he lost on guns = failure
immigration being hijacked by repubs = he won't get all the credit for it
Jobs = he spent 90 billion for a few thousand jobs in green energy. Wow way to go.

So at best he gets 1/3 of his agenda done. What a sucky President he is.

Requiem 05-09-2013 01:43 PM

Congratulations Captain Obvious, most President's lose seats during mid-term elections. Considering the Democrats have way more seats up in the Senate and the Republicans already did redistricting to make sure they kept the House, that was pretty much a given.

You think Bush was a good president.

Your opinion is irrelevant.

How about honesty and accountability?

This junk graphic is a total non sequitur. Can you show us where these attacks were under similar circumstances and the GOP sat on their hands? If not, you have no argument.

Kind of like how the suicide rate of soldiers was huge news under Bush but hush-hush under Obama - especially since rates are higher?

You mean like that?

Don't forget how they always preface any argument of that sort with "since 9/11", as if it never happened.

Stupid deflection, but typical.

They obviously need to work on the "hush-hush" thingy.

So you're ok with the zero outrage when Bush was in office and 60 embassy personnel were killed?
