NYT takes a hard look at its own polling on the deficit
FAIR Blog points out this bit from the NYT article a few days ago on their latest poll:
The economy and jobs are increasingly and overwhelmingly cited by Americans as the most important problems facing the country, while the deficit barely registers as a topic of concern when survey respondents were asked to volunteer their worries.Indeed. The full results are here. On page 4 are the numbers for "What do you think is the most important problem facing the country today?" Economy gets 32%, Jobs 28%, and nothing else gets more than a few percentage points. Deficit gets 3%.
