Democratic Weaknesses Do Not Spell Democratic Losses

Terrorism, and to a lesser extent, crime, remain the Democrats only remaining weaknesses going into the 2006 elections.

The GOP enjoys a 14 point lead over Democrats on the issue of terrorism in the polls. 45% of the American public believes that the Republicans are better suit to deal with terrorism than the Democrats (31%).

However, the Democratic Party is winning by considerable margins in most other categories, including the most important one: general favorability. This means that terrorism isn't the number one issue in congressional elections this year. The nation is more concerned about the domestic problems that the Republican majority has yet to address: health care, unemployment, social security, and education.
