Economy is on Voters' Minds

A new poll shows Georgia voters are focused on the economy more than any other issue as the November elections approach.

The economy ranked as the top concern among voters, ahead of other heated issues like health care and immigration.

However, the poll also suggested voters didn't trust those elected in Washington. There were 56 percent of voters who disapproved of the job President Barack Obama has done, while 72 percent said they weren't happy with what Congress is doing.

Mason-Dixon Polling & Research Inc. of Washington, D.C., interviewed 625 likely voters by phone between Monday and Wednesday for the poll. Thirteen daily newspapers with readership across Georgia paid for the poll. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
