Exit polls from The Associated Press report that voters based their decisions first and foremost on the economy. Even with recent fights over foreign policy and social issues, the state of the nation’s finances still have center stage.
Economic concerns include rising gas prices, national debt, and recovery from the recession. In Tennessee, low income voters tended to choose Rick Santorum over Mitt Romney.
Tennessee residents have to wait until November to vote on the economy again, but in the meantime, how about making changes to your own finances?
If you’re worried about the rising gas prices, perhaps it’s time to figure out a budget that prioritizes the things you care about and need most. If you can set aside enough money for transportation, that empty gas tank might not be so terrifying.
Does national debt have you worried? How about starting with your own debts and figuring out a reasonable, achievable goal for paying them all back?
