A survey from Public Policy Polling reports that voters are significantly more concerned about the economy than they are about the war on terrorism: 74% name the economy as a more important issue than the war (10% said the latter). 61% say they care more about gas prices; only 23% in contrast say the war--views shared almost equally across partisan lines.
