Sixty nine percent of Americans now view the economy as the biggest problem our country faces. The same amount of people that saw the economy as a big problem when the stock market crashed in September. It's laughable because economists and bureacrats are seriously saying that we are entering recovery. What logical person thinks that when 69% of a population sees something as a huge problem, that things are getting better?
The second biggest issue concerning Americans is the issue of the conflicts in the Middle East, the Iraq war included. Eleven percent of total responders found this to be the biggest problem. That number is up from 6% two months ago. Also laughable because the Middle East conflict the second biggest issue that got Barack Obama elected and peopel are actually becoming more concerned as his presidency goes on.
