According to the Pew Research Center’s annual policy priorities survey, 76 percent of Americans want defense against terrorism to be the nation’s top policy priority for 2015.
The economy is still a major concern for most Americans, and 75 percent of people expect Obama and Congress to give it a major attention. You can’t mention economic improvement without mentioning jobs and 67 percent of people are rating job creation as one of the country’s top priorities.
Health care, crime reduction and assisting the poor also appear in the top 10. Scientific research, global warming and global trade are at the very opposite end of Pew’s extensive list.
