As the 2012 election season is underway, 49 percent of Americans say their votes in November will be most influenced jobs creation, according to the recent Workplace Insights survey by Adecco Staffing US, a recruitment and work force solutions provider. 

The survey also shows that 36 percent of respondents say President Obama has the most successful plan to create jobs in the U.S.  Among the Republican candidates, only 15 percent of respondents say Mitt Romney has the best plan to create jobs while 8 percent say Ron Paul has the best plan. Seven percent of respondents support Newt Gingrich's plan, and only 3 percent of respondents say Rick Santorum has the most successful vision to create jobs.

"With economic growth and recovery still taking place, job creation is still understandably one of the most important things on the minds of Americans," says Joyce Russell, executive vice president and president of Adecco Staffing US. "Given how many people are still looking for work, it should be no surprise that this issue has the power to ultimately decide who will win the 2012 presidential election."
