    Most Important Issue For 2016 Election?

    Out of the list, which issue is the most important to you and how you will vote in the 2016 election, primary and/or general. I have these separated to left leaning and right leaning, if you are truly smack inm the center, well sorry, but limited to 10 options so you are out of luck, just post which is most important. Thank you for your participation, and please be patient while I enter all the poll options.

    Does it matter if you are right-leaning or left-leaning for these issues? Just curious.

    I find it interesting your poll has guns and abortion but no foreign policy or immigration answers.

    Guns and abortion are really minor issues dedicated activists on fringes fight over, the majority of Americans never care about those two at any one time.

    It's not my election, but I'd say your most important issue for 2016 is finding a competent executive. If you don't have a competent leader in the White House, you'll never solve or deal with any of the substantive issues facing the country.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    Another poll that ignores the millions of voters who are neither left nor right 'leaning'.

    Here's the thing, every single election cycle a poll EXACTLY like this comes up. People vote. Then people bicker back and forth.

    Trouble is - people just keep re-electing the same damn people over and over again, and the problems that we have just continue to fester and grow.

    Look at who's already declared they're in the race. Anyone new? Or just "more of the same"?

    We're in a massive cycle of insanity. Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

    Every election I HOPE beyond hope that more people will gravitate towards a third party candidate.

    Every election I'm highly disappointed when all I see are basically the same D's & R's put right back into their positions of power.

    It shouldn't. The economy/jobs and the debt/deficit are intertwined, if you ask me.

    Those will affect us ALL.

    I agree...the 'system' keeps giving us the same choices of candidates. Look at the top two retreads (at least name wise)...Clinton and Bush. They are solid establishment candidates

    I can't pick a number one but I think foreign policy and the economy are well above the others for me. Also, I follow the sentiment that if you boost the economy that helps the debt anyways.

    Does anyone think that the conservatives will be helped by the fact that gay marriage isn't on the table anymore? One less social issue to stumble on?
