Primary concerns for IT voters

With the primaries underway, what better time to find out what IT workers want out of the 2008 election? That was the thinking behind CompTIA’s recent report, which surveyed 600 tech pros about their political concerns.

When it came to IT policy, most respondents supported free trade, viewing it as beneficial to the economy. Many IT pros also favored a more laissez-faire approach to the Internet and leaned toward individual responsibility for privacy.

That said, about 40 percent of those polled were in favor of the government offering stronger intellectual property protections, as well as more tax credits for training and certification.

Where do you stand on these issues? Cast your ballots here.
