Poll Analysis
ECONOMIC CONCERNS PERSIST; CONFIDENCE INRECOVERY, CONGRESS LOW
79% of Adults Have Very Little or No Confidence in Congress to ReduceDeficit 
The latest nationwide poll conducted by YouGov for the Job Creators Alliance finds thateconomic concerns continue to persist among Americans. The poll found that more thanhalf of American adults listed unemployment to be the most concerning economic issueto them. Along party lines, there was a distinct split: 75% of Democrats saidunemployment was the most concerning issue while 70% of self-identified Republicansnamed the growth in government spending as the most concerning economic issue.Political Independents were largely split in half between unemployment andgovernment spending as their top economic issue.
Pessimism in the economy is matched by the public’s lack of trust in their elected
officials to find a solution. When asked about how much confidence they had that thisCongress will come up with a plan to significantly reduce the Federal budget, 79% of those polled
answered “very little” or “none at all,” a sentiment shared by a stagger
ing86% of political Independents.Perhaps most indicative of the uncertainty and prevalent fear was the finding that one
out of two adults believe that if they were to lose their job, it would be “very hard” to
find another job that paid as much as their current salary and predicted they wouldneed to take a pay cut.
Adding in those who believe it would be “somewhat hard” andthat it “might take a while” before finding another job that paid as much, the number
rises to 80%.The poll of a representative sample of 1,000 adults was conducted November 29-30,2011.
