Improving the Economy a Main Concern for Americans

Eighty percent of Americans believe the economy should be a main priority for the president and Congress in 2014. When broken down, eighty-five percent of Democrats, seventy-five percent of Republicans, and eighty-one percent of Independents held this view.
