As the 2012 presidential election is quickly approaching, people are focused on a few key issues. They are listening to how each candidate plans to make changes that will impact these important areas of life and that will be the key factor in how they choose whom to vote for. Yesterday’s clearly marked party lines are becoming blurry as the new generation of voters tunes into debates. They are so much worried about Red vs. Blue as they are about the issues that impact them on a daily basis. Here is what people really care about in the 2012 election.
With unemployment rates staying high, officials argue that they are started to go down. However, further research uncovers that this is simply because many Americans are no longer eligible to draw unemployment benefits and many have given up the search for employment altogether. Americans want politicians who are focused on creating new jobs. They don’t want a numbers game; they want real job opportunities.
Americans are sick and tired of national debt. Even if something turns around in the next four years, our grandchildren will still be paying for the money that President Obama dished out in his stimulus packages. People are ready for the debt to decrease and American economy to increase. They want a President that will be fiscally responsible to lead the United States out of such a financial mess.
These two issues are at the forefront of the most voters’ decisions. If you want to know what Americans care about, look at jobs and debt. These are two areas of government that impact them on a daily basis.
