Americans Agree on the Need to Invest to Create Jobs

According to a national poll by Celinda Lake conducted in February 2011, 58% of Americans agreed with the following statement.  

"While reducing the deficit is important, creating jobs and growing the economy should be our first priority. The best way to get our deficits under control is to put our economy back on track. That requires investment in areas vital to our economy like education, modern infrastructure, research and technology, and a clear plan to make things in America once more. Critical investments in our future cannot be sacrificed to austerity and budget cuts."

Only 35% of respondents thought that deficit reduction should be the overriding priority.  

Ms. Lake presented the poll findings at the Summit on Jobs and America's Future on March 10.
