A new Rasmussen poll gives John McCain the edge over Barack Obama on most important issues. McCain leads 47-41 on the economy, 49-37 on Iraq, 53-31 on national security, and 44-38 on taxes. Obama has a slight 43-39 edge on ethics. (Via Instapundit.)
It’s encouraging that McCain leads Obama on the issues despite the best efforts of the media. On the other hand, the election may well not come down to issues, since Obama’s campaign is primarily based on his personality, not the issues. Rasmussen didn’t poll on who would be better to heal our souls.
