The Post-Post-9/11 Era?
by

I have a column up on today’s page warning about how Barack Obama is the post-post-9/11 candidate who wants the nation to return to thinking that terrorism is not a major threat. But another aspect that jumped out at me from reading the Quinnipiac poll is that this may very well be a good thing for Obama, because his attitude seems to reflect the mood of the nation.

Let’s take Florida for example. In 2004, 24 percent of the state’s voters identified terrorism as the most important issue in the election, and they voted 87-12 for Bush. Only 16 percent named economy/jobs, and they voted overwhelmingly for Kerry.

In today’s Quinnipiac poll, only 9 percent of Floridians identified terrorism as an important issue, compared to 53 percent who identified the economy.
