Americans view 'reducing corruption' as 2nd highest priority for next US Prez, finds poll
Washington, July 31 (ANI): Americans have viewed reducing corruption in the United States Government as the second-highest priority for the next president, behind creating jobs, according to a new poll.
A Gallup poll showed that 87 percent of the respondents said reducing corruption in government is an "extremely important" or "very important" priority for the next president, compared with 92 percent who said the same about creating good jobs.
According to The Politico, the survey revealed that corruption ranked ahead of issues such as reducing the federal budget deficit (86 percent), dealing with terrorism (86 percent) and continuing social security and medicare (85 percent).While healthcare remained a top priority for Obama supporters, with 50 percent characterizing it as "extremely important," 51 percent of Romney supporters prioritized reducing the federal budget deficit, the poll noted.
However, the survey showed that for both camps, 48 percent viewed job creation as "extremely important" for the next presidential term, making it the second-most-important issue.
The poll was conducted July 19-22 with a sample of 1,030 adults and a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 4 percentage points. (ANI)
