Top three priorities of Americans for 2010

The results of a PEW study of the priorities of the US public for 2010 (h/t Sully):
 % rating each a top priority
  • 83% - Economy
  • 81% - Jobs 
  • 80% - Terrorism
Other priorities
  • 45% - Financial regulation
  • 36% - Lobbyists
  • 28% - Global warming
I think it's remarkable that almost ten years after 9/11 and only one year after Wall Street shenanigans put millions of Americans out of work, US citizens worry as much about terrorism as jobs and the economy.  To think that fewer than half of Americans (45%) say "stricter regulation of financial institutions should be a top priority for the president and Congress"!   These results must be music to the ears of Goldman Sachs.
