In Depth: Listening Tour – why Americans see jobs and the economy as the biggest issue

On American Morning this morning we're launching the first segment in this week's In Depth: Listening Tour series. This week, we're looking at the issues that are going to be driving, motivating and impacting voters when Americans go to the polls to elect a President in seventeen months.

Two nationally syndicated radio talk show hosts with very different points of view join Christine Romans to talk about the issues that may be the deciding factors in the 2012 presidential election: jobs and the economy.

Ben Ferguson, conservative commentator and host of the Ben Ferguson Show, and Thom Hartmann, host of the left-leaning Thom Hartmann Radio Program, debate the polarizing issues that concern each of their audiences.
