Schneider: War in Iraq more of an issue for Dems

The top issues among Democratic caucus goers are the war in Iraq, the economy and health care.

(CNN) - The war in Iraq is the top issue among Democratic caucus goers, but not among Republicans, our entrance polling shows. More than a third of Democrats say the war in Iraq trumps all issues, while only 17 percent of Republicans name it the top issue.

Rounding out the top issues for the Democrats are the economy and health care, while the top issues for Republicans are immigration and the economy.

    I think it's funny that the Republicans are more concearned about immigration than healthcare. Too busy getting rid of people who we think are getting too much power than focusing on the health of our country. We might die of cancer but at least the Mexicans are gone!

    The Iraq war was an issue in 2006, and that's why the Dems re-took Congress. But the Dems failed to deliver on their promises, actually siding with Bush on the war when voting for funds to keep the troops in Iraq. Now, even the President has a higher popularity rating that the US Congress, led by Dems. The war has been replaced by the economy as the number one issue in America, but the economy is going to hold steady throughout 2008 with nothing major happening to make Bush or Republicans nervous.
