If you're wondering why those issues like health care, Iraq, and the environment, which young evangelicals said were the most important to them in the recent CBS poll Steve posted on, weren't in the top four in the Value Voters Summit's straw poll, TAPPED explains that only a few issues were even included as choices:

Each voter got to pick one issue from a list of 12 selected by the FRC that they considered their biggest priority. Other issues they listed were things like stem cell research, public display of the 10 commandments, and school prayer. Conspicuously not included: the Iraq War, national security, poverty, or environmental stewardship or "creation care" as evangelicals have termed it.

So that's why it turned out abortion, gays, tax cuts, and super duper tax cuts. One commenter said, "Jeez, even their fucking polls are stupid."
