Unemployment Remains Leading Concern for Voters: CVOTER-IANS Tracker

Jobs remains top concern for voters

Unemployment remains the leading concern for the people as they are far more worried about economic issues than security, according to the CVOTER-IANS tracker.

In a survey carried out on April 26, 28.42 per cent of respondents identified unemployment as their main concern. In a sample of 11,672, 57.04 per cent felt economic issues as one of the major problems in the country and 11.74 per cent expressed security concerns as the main worry.

Unemployment has remained as the top issue even before the poll process began. But in mid-March, the concerns about security issues came almost at par with economic problems.

The US' headline unemployment rate fell to 3.9 per cent in April, the first time it has dropped below 4 per cent since 2000, the government said on Friday.

The poll tracker in the first week of March had shown that terror attacks had overtaken unemployment as the top issue for the voters. On March, 26.12 per cent of respondents had identified terror attacks as main concern while 21.74 per cent had said unemployment.

The concerns about security has gradually come down as unemployment poses challenge. On April 27, there was a difference of 45.3 percentage points between economic and security issues with balance tilting heavily in favour of the former.
