What’s More Important to You?

Election day is less than three weeks away. Do you know how you’re gonna vote? I do.
But that’s not what I’m really interested in. I’m interested in what you think about this.
When it comes to ending global poverty  and fighting the war on terror:
- 80 percent of those surveyed* by the Barna Research Group, who self identified as strong McCain supporters, believe fighting the war on terror should be a more important priority for the next president than the global effort to end extreme poverty.
- 11 percent of McCain’s strongest supporters feel the opposite; the fight against global poverty should be a greater priority than the war on terror
- Whereas, on the other side of the political aisle, 30 percent of Obama’s strongest supporters place a greater priority on fighting terrorism than on ending global poverty. And 45 percent reverse that priority.
What do you think about that?
*1,005 U.S. adults were surveyed in the custom research Compassion commissioned Barna to conduct.
