Survey results: What’s on your mind?



We let our most recent Quick Survey, What’s on your mind?, run longer than usual, mostly because there was a lot of ground to cover there.

As usual, we found some pretty interesting results. Click the image for a full-sized version.

Results of our Quick Survey

Over the course of several weeks, “Rising interest rates” jockeyed for first place — and finally won — against “All the money the gov’t spends and the huge deficit” (which came in second) and “The direction the country is going” (which took ‘place’). “The recession” came in fourth, which we thought was fascinating.

All in all, the results suggest that our readers believe it’s about over and/or aren’t buying the Beltway hype that passing huge spending bills is the way to beat the downturn. (The fact that only a small percentage “tries not to think about these things” tells us that you’re not afraid to face whatever comes.)

Our new survey wants to know what y’all think of the health-care reform efforts. As of this writing, the drive to reform one-seventh of the economy — on top of reforming much of the rest of it — had stalled in Washington.
