Deciding Factors

It's not just the economy, it's health care, too, that will guide voters' choices in November. The Quinnipiac University/New York Times/CBS News polls in Florida, Ohio and Wisconsin rated the economy as "extremely important" to their vote by 60, 59 and 54 percent, respectively, and health care "extremely important" by 56, 42 and 50 percent, respectively.
