It's the SPENDING, Stupid!! Part 62,358


The economy is the No. 1 concern for a majority of voters heading into 2010’s midterm elections, but the deficit comes in close behind, particularly with all-important independent voters, according to a new Gallup poll.

The economy tops a list of concerns, unsurprisingly, for 57 percent of voters, with health care (49%) and unemployment (46%) rounding out the top three. But when you examine the numbers among just independent voters, the federal budget deficit becomes the second-most important issue at 52 percent.

For Democrats, health care and unemployment round out the top three concerns. For Republicans, the deficit and terrorism tie for second place at 47 percent.
