Democrats (and Republicans) Say Iraq War Is Top Problem (Ipsos poll)
(AP) For Democrats, war looms as the nation's most pressing problem. Republicans cite the economy, terrorism, the war and immigration, the Associated Press-Ipsos poll found.

A third of Democrats _ 31 percent _ identified war, both the three-year-old Iraq war and conflicts in general, as the top problem for the country while 14 percent listed the economy, highlighting an issue at the forefront for Democrats, with less than four months to the midterm elections.
Republicans were most likely to mention war, 18 percent; immigration, 14 percent; terrorism, 14 percent, and the economy, 10 percent.

Among registered voters who chose the war as their top issue, 68 percent say they would vote for the Democrat in their district while 26 percent said they would vote for the Republican.

The problem mentioned most often by all the adults polled was the war _ in Iraq and conflicts in general _ 22 percent; economy at 14 percent; immigration and political leaders at 9 percent; the energy crisis at 8 percent and terrorism at 7 percent.

1. It isn't a pressing problem any more the U.S. is in it up to its asshole
...the problem we face is are we going to let an expanded war, probably a WW III completely engulf us? The neocons have their war, but they wish to take the country all the way into total world wide conflict and into a nuclear holocaust. That must not be allowed. How is that to be prevented? By recognizing that this is what the Bush administration and the neocons really are trying to make happen. To prevent this Bush and his supporters must be removed from power right away.

2. Interesting -
I find it very interesting that for the Repugs, the war in Iraq ranked as most urgent problem (18%). Reading between the lines.....I think that means they are not as optimistic as they were.....say....4 years ago?

I personally feel the midterms will be won & lost over the war in Iraq. Look at Holy Joe: he's swirling in the toilet as we speak.

THAT is going to be the issue that torpedoes the Repug party this fall.
