Poll: Voters Trust GOP on Economy

As the 2014 elections get closer by the day, voters continue to trust Republicans over Democrats on the most important issues. According to a new Rasmussen Report, the economy is the number one priority for voters and Republicans are trusted most to handle it.

The economy remains the most important issue to voters in terms of how they will vote in the next congressional election,and Republicans have a 46% to 39% lead in voter trust in that area, according to new national telephone surveying. That ties the largest gap between the parties on the issue since May 2012. Since June 2009, the GOP has led in voter trust on the economy in all but one survey.

On Friday we saw another grim unemployment report showing nearly one million Americans left the work force last month. President Obama's latest focus is back on climate change and more regulation, not reducing red tape for entrepreneurs and job creators.
