L.A. Times Poll: Dems have "values" edge by 8 points

Here's a worthwhile poll for once.  It's from the L.A. Times, from June 24-27, 2006. N=1,321 adults nationwide. MoE ± 3 (for all adults).


I'd specifically call your attention to the first and third questions.  As you can see by following the link, on the question, "Which party -- the Democrats or the Republicans -- comes closer to representing the values that you, yourself, hold important?", Democrats lead Republicans 44 to 36.  That's something we haven't seen in a while.  On the third question, "Which of these two parties you feel is better at handling the following issues? Which party do you think can do a better job handling the major problems facing the country?", they have a 43 to 27% lead.  


Cheers all around.


BTW, the Indigo Girls rocked last night.

Speaking of women musicians, those who donate  $1000 contribution to Nancy Skinner for Congress (MI-09) will receive two tickets to any Joan Jett and the Blackhearts concert in the United States, backstage passes and a personal telephone from Joan.  Now that is a deal.

Re: L.A. Times

It is not about values, it is the lack of jobs in this country and the wages aren't going fast enough and our manufacturing jobs have disappeared. In other words you have to be a skilled worker to get a job in this country. And 4.6 unemployment is understated they don't count the people that left the job market after 8 months. That is morally right. People in 2004 associated moral values with war on terrorism and the war in Iraq and gay marriage. That is no longer the case, their moral values changed to jobs.
