A Split in Priorities for Republicans and Democrats

Wall Street Journal:  “Members of the two political parties are split over which issues are most important for the government to address, with Republicans giving much higher priority to national security issues than do Democrats, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll finds.”

“Asked which issues should be the federal government’s top priorities, Republican primary voters’ top three issues were national security, the deficit and the issue of job creation and economic growth. Democratic primary voters, by contrast, named jobs first, followed by health care and climate change.”

“In the new survey, some 27% of Republican primary voters named national security and terrorism as the government’s highest priority, compared with only 13% of Democratic primary voters who picked that as the top priority.”
