Americans side with Republicans on 6 of top 10 issues; tied on abortion—Rasmussen Poll

Issue Democrats Republicans
Health Care 47% 37%
Education 44% 37%
Social Security 43% 37%
Abortion 41% 41%
Economy 39% 45%
Taxes 39% 44%
Iraq 37% 45%
Nat’l Security 36% 51%
Gov’t Ethics 29% 35%
Immigration 29% 43%

Just about half a year ago during the presidential election, the Republicans had the lead in 0 or 1 of these issues, depending on the week the poll was taken. So this shows a tremendous amount of progress by the GOP.
