Providing an 11th hour clue to how blacks will vote on the presidential stage, 95 percent of African Americans believe that the federal government should be the nation’s jobs creator, according to a last-minute battleground poll.
The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People released their poll on Election Day to show that jobs, and blacks’ preference for a “national jobs program,” is the number one issue. Next, but way down the list of importance, was education at 23 percent and health care at 22 percent.
The poll of 1,600 African Americans who have already voted or said they were certain to vote did not indicate a winner in the President Obama-Mitt Romney race, but Romney has championed tax cuts and the expansion of small business job creation while the president is eager for government stimulus spending to create new jobs
