Small business weighs in on election, legislation, economy

Posted by Karen1 in election, economyARRA


Although the remarks of Carl Paladino, New York gubernatorial candidate, on gay people, along with the assertion from Rhode Island gubernatorial candidate, Frank Caprio, that President Obama could shove his endorsement, have made for some spicy headlines lately, small business leaders are taking a far more pragmatic view of the upcoming mid-term elections. Their focus is on the recent voting records of those stumping for office and the economy, according to a recent survey of more than 500 small business owners by Sage North America, a provider of business management software and services.

In fact, 61 percent said that a politician's recent voting record on legislation would drive their own voting behavior. That was nearly double the number (33 percent) that said they would be influenced by political party affiliation. For 52 percent, concerns over their businesses would drive their choices in the voting booth.
