The Pew Research Center recently released an interesting read: The results of a survey that give a glimpse into what Americans consider their top national priorities for 2015.

The top priorities included:

  • Terrorism
  • Economy
  • Jobs
  • Education
  • Social Security

Pretty standard stuff, right?

Here’s the part we found interesting: Rounding out the top 20 was “money in politics.” The influence of lobbyists also made the list.

The story included another little tidbit:

The age differences are especially large when it comes to reducing the influence of lobbyists and special interests in Washington. Twice as many adults 65 and older (56%) compared with those under 30 (28%) view reducing the influence of lobbyists as a top priority.
