What are the nation's most pressing issues

The Yahoo! News Ask America site has generated nearly 1.7 million responses as it collects non-traditional polling data on topics ranging from the economy to immigration.


The graphic above asks "What are the nation's most pressing issues?" and breaks down 1,671,267 responses by gender, answer and issue at hand. The issue's importance to the people is then represented by the size of the light bulb it lives in. You can see, for example, that almost 6 in 10 people who responded believe that America can still maintain its superpower status despite China's speedy economic rise.
