Additionally, 57 percent of the voters polled disapprove of the way the Iraq war is being run.

UPDATE: “”The reporting on the importance of national issues is off – again. It’s not correct to say that Iraq is less important than corruption or terrorism to people’s vote — it’s solely a function of question wording. The items listed on television are rated individually as “How important is this issue to you” and not against one another or as a motivator for voting.” — John Halpin
