    The Fading Impact of 9/11

    Courtesy of PowerLine, I direct your attention to this post by pollster Scott Ramussen. While it is worth it to read the whole piece, the most important part is the summation at the end:
    Another possibility, suggested by a wealth of polling data, is that Iraq and the War on Terror are no longer the dominant voting issues. For the first time since 9/11, we will have an election decided on issues closer to home. Immigration, the economy, and other domestic topics may ultimately decide the critical election contests this November.

    Keep your eyes peeled folks. I have predicted for a while now that the GOP wouldn't do too well in the mid-terms in '08, for many reasons, but among them the fact that the GOP leadership still thinks that national security is important enough that Dem foolishness in that field would be enough to always tip elections their way. This doesn't appear to be good news for the GOP in that regard. The Powerline post about this is also worth reading.
