We now know exactly what our choices are in November. On one hand, we have incumbent President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden. Challenging them, we have the Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan ticket as potential presidential and vice presidential alternatives.
For the next almost three months, we are going to be bombarded with facts — some true, many slightly skewed and some outright lies. That's always been the case. But the one thing that can't be argued, is it is two clearly different choices. While many of the issues are going to be debated in a public forum, a vote is a very personal matter. It usually comes down to how things impact the voter directly and not necessarily a big issue that might get a lot of discussion.
So what issue is likely to have an influence on your vote in November? As a provider for your family, will it be the economy? As a person without employment or insecure about a job, will that be the biggest issue? As a business owner, are you looking for some help going forward? As an elderly person, will it be concerns about security in your twilight years or as a parent, is it the future of your children that you are most concerned about? These and several other issues will be hotly debated between now and Nov. 6.
Our question is, what is the biggest issue that will influence your vote in November? Tell us in comments.
