YouTube Voters Want to Ask Rick Perry About Government Spending

YouTube and Fox News are hosting a debate for Republican presidential candidates on Thursday, and Google’s video site is asking viewers/users to submit questions. YouTube says that the largest number of queries are directed at Texas governor Rick Perry, followed by second-time candidate Ron Paul.

What’s on their minds? The economy, obviously.

Except not quite that obviously. In the fine print, YouTube notes that the chart above “excludes the “Other” category, which has received 26% of all questions, ranging from education to State’s rights.”

Disclosure: News Corp., which owns Fox News, also owns this Web site.
