Pocketbook Issues Chief Concern of American Adults

Pocketbook issues have barely beaten Iraq as the chief concern of American adults.

With the Iowa caucuses now less than a week away, an Associated Press-Yahoo News survey finds six in ten people are worried about the economy and health care.

In addition to unexpected medical costs, they're worried about the home-sales slump and the high cost of gasoline.

Democrats hold an edge over Republicans on which party is considered best able to deal with those issues.

Nearly half the people surveyed still rate terrorism high on the list of concerns.

And the survey finds they think Republicans could best deal with that.
