Gas prices, Afghanistan, federal budget: Which issue is most important to you? (Poll)

By ,

The new Washington Post-ABC News poll released Monday morning shows that President Obama’s approval ratings are slipping even as indicators point to an improving economy.

President Obama’s highest disapproval ratings came when asked about gas prices, the economy and the budget. The highest approval ratings were on his handling of Afghanistan.

So how will voters decide how to cast their vote in the fall? We want to find out which issue is factoring most prominently in your decision on who to support in the November election.
