Asked in the latest Gallup Poll what are the major problems facing America, an incredible 4% said terrorism. 96% are living with their heads in the sand. 33% cited Iraq, 22% mentioned some economic problem, 13% spoke of health care issues and 9% mentioned immigration.
With terror attacks on JFK airport, Ft. Dix, the Sears Tower, the Brooklyn Bridge, and a wide variety of domestic targets narrowly thwarted and a terror attack on ten airplanes flying over the Atlantic averted by the barest of margins, it is incredible that so few voters appreciate the dangers we face.
This tiny proportion of Americans who realize how important terrorism is as a threat to our nation gives us a real understanding of why the Democrats are polling so well in the approaching 2008 election.
