Re: April 21, 2008 question

A year ago, voters were most concerned with

1) Iraq
2) Terrorism
3) Health care
4) The economy

My how things change when they really matter. It's kind of like when you added that business major to your poli-sci degree at the last minute . . . just in case. Congrats to Andy for being the only one to put Iraq at the top of the list.

A recent poll shows that Iraq has dropped to the fourth most important issue to voters in the upcoming presidential election. Raise your hand if your shocked that the economy, gas prices, and health care have overtaken it (by a pretty wide margin) in the minds of the voting public. I'm not going to pretend to be more globally conscious or patriotic than anybody, but this is pretty typical of how elections go. Everyone is really concerned about a war on foreign soil until the vote approaches and the bills are due. Then every four years we have to decide as a nation who will do a better job with our money: the government or Wal-Mart. And that's how we decide on the leader of the free world. Cool, huh?

Here's today's question:

According to a Fox News poll in May 2007, what were the four most important issues to voters in the 2008 presidential election? (put them in order from first to fourth; the most credit will be assigned to the most important issues)
