Americans' Top 10 Policy Priorities For 2015

by
,

What policies do Americans want Obama and Congress to prioritize in 2015? According to the Pew Research Center's policy priorities survey, 76 percent of people in the United States believe tackling terrorism should be the nation's top priority this year. It is the first time in four years terrorism has made the top of Pew's list and its appearance for 2015 can be attributed to economic improvement as well as persistant terrorist threats.

Despite considerable improvement, the economy is still an area of concern for Americans and 75 percent of them want President Obama to give it attention. Job creation is closely linked to economic improvement so it comes as little surprise that it rounds off the top three with 67 percent of respondents expecting it to be prioritized.
