Remarkably, Super Tuesday Exits Polls Show Economy, Gas Prices Top Issues

Somehow the top issues facing voters today is not Rush Limbaugh and 30-year-old college students whining about the cost of cheaply available contraception, according to the AP and CBS News.

It’s the economy, stupid, despite the best efforts of the left to distract everyone.

Gas prices and the economy were the top issues on the minds of voters on Super Tuesday, according to exit polls.

Seven in 10 voters in the seven Super Tuesday states that hold primaries said the price of gas was an important topic in deciding who to vote for in the GOP presidential primary, according to CBS News. Southern states seemed to care most about gas prices: in Georgia, 81 percent said it was the top issue in deciding, while in Oklahoma, 79 percent said it was the most important. In Tennessee, 77 percent it was important.

The Associated Press found that the economy was also a top issue influencing voters as they went to the polls.

Displeasure with the federal government was also strong among voters in Republican primary contests. In Ohio, eight in 10 voters surveyed in exit polls said they were unhappy with the federal government, and four in 10 said they were outright angry.

Maybe after the full-court press of the so-called “war on women” the Democrats will get back to playing the race card. You know they’re saving that one up for the right time.

    This can’t be true. Our betters said that the most important thing is to attack the Catholice Church and make it fund birth control and abortions. Which the dear leader had said previously he woulodn’t do. They wouldn’t lie to us, would they?
