Unemployment and creating jobs is the number one priority for President Barack Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney. Both parties agree on the topic.

According to a new USA TODAY/Gallup Poll, voters make it clear as to what they need from the president who wins the November election.

Supporters of both candidates agree about the level of importance of jobs and government corruption which some voters believe has been plaguing the country for decades.

Voters also believe that regardless of who the next president of the United States should be, he should have a clear cut plan that will prove beneficial for health care, Social Security, Medicare and public education.

Creating more jobs will always remain as the highest priority during campaigning for both presidential hopefuls since unemployment seems to be at a standstill.

In the months to come voters say that they want to hear an outlined planned for reducing the federal budget deficit.

The candidate with a better plan for these issues has a better chance of winning the November elections, according to the poll. As of right now Americans believe Romney is better able to handle jobs and the economy better than Obama because of his experience working at Bain.

Although Obama did not work for Bain he did however inherit the current state of the country from former president George W. Bush, and has made achievements and progression towards the economy since taking office in 2008.

Some of Obama's achievements include

1: The Making Home Affordable home refinancing plan. http://1.usa.gov/goy6zl

2: Oversaw the creation of more jobs in 2010 alone than Bush did in eight years. http://bit.ly/hrrnjY

3: 15. Signed the Democratic-sponsored Credit Card Accountability, Responsibility and Disclosure (CARD) Act, which was designed to to protect consumers from unfair and deceptive credit card practices.  http://1.usa.gov/gIaNcS

4: Initiated a $15 billion plan designed to encourage increased lending to small businesses.

Despite Obama's current achievements, he will still need to impress voters with future plans in the months to come.
