Hot off the CNN stove:

– This is not a one issue race. When asked what the extremely important issues of the election were, 42% of respondents said “corruption in Washington,” 40% said “terrorism,” nearly 39% said “the economy,” and 37% said “Iraq.”

– When asked if they approve or disapprove of the war in Iraq, 57% said disapprove and 41% said approve.

– And finally, not all politics is local. When asked if they voted on national issues or local issues, 62% of voters said national and only 33% said local. The death of Tip O’Neill’s axiom is good for the Democratic Party.
