    Not hearing much about this. Ok, abortion comes in #5, but gay marriage? Seems taxes and deficit are key issues. Wonder about those independents?

    Gotta love that only 1% favor reducing healthcare costs

    Once again you manage to get it wrong. Has this been diagnosed?

    The question was what is the most important or second most important issue to you. Reducing health care costs is no doubt important to many people. But it pales next to the immediate crisis of a government that is out of control.

    What is remarkable is that 1% actually felt it was the most important issue in their lives.

    Where do they figure the government is too large specifically? Too many consumer protections? Too many environmental protections? Too many financial protections? Too much worker safety protections?

    I wonder which cops they want taken off the beat? I wonder if they fully understand the consequences?

    Wonder how many CPAC members are retired with paid for health care and insurance.
    Every self employed conservative I know favors health care reform.
    NO brainer.

    I'm really surprised "Doing away with" abortion came in significantly higher than restoring honesty to government and reforming social security, among other things. Then look at where the "War on Terror" scored. And yet a non-interventionist Libertarian potential candidate won the Presidential straw poll? Based on how some of these issues scored it makes no sense.

    I wonder what was important to people who voted "Other"?

    Should that really surprise you when a majority dont think it's the problem Democrats pretend it is? And they sure as heck dont think government should fix it.

    What a surprise! I am stunned. Stunned i tell you!

    It shows what everyone already suspected. All that talk of wanting to get healthcare "right" was just talk in an attempt to keep any healthcare reform from passing

    These numbers certainly do not reflect a Ron Paul victory.

    I find it interesting they also have The War on Terrorism and Iraq as two different ones.

    Something doesn't smell right about this. :lol:
