People keep telling me that they'll never win, that the American people don't care about corruption. Well, to them I say, scope this data (link: Daily DeLay):
How important will each of the following issues be to your vote for Congress this November? (sorted by extremely important)
Extremely important -- Extremely/Very important
Corruption in government 45 -- 81
Terrorism 45 -- 77
The situation in Iraq 44 -- 81
The economy 43 -- 84
Health care 42 -- 79
Gas prices 41 -- 70
Social Security 38 -- 75
Taxes 35 -- 73
Wow, look what's in first place! If it isn't corruption in government? Beating out Iraq AND Terrorism.
Uh-oh, spaghettios (does anyone else remember that?).
And as DeLay's troubles continue to grow, I don't see these numbers falling any time soon.
