A few days ago, CBS News released a poll on the issues important to born-again Christian voters. The picture is looking a bit rosier for Dems to peel them away from the Repubs, but there may still be some work to do.
The poll was featured on Thursday's CBS Evening News, and showed that the most important issues for born-again Christians are health care (23%) and Iraq (20%). They also feel that the Democrats, not the Republicans, are talking about their issues. Katie Couric also interviewed Jim Wallis of Sojourners, who was quick to point out that Darfur, global warming and human trafficking are also well ahead of abortion and gay rights among Christian voters.
Needless to say, as a born-again Christian Dem who realized long ago that the Republicans were selling us a bill of goods, this had me psyched big-time. However, a look at the poll's internals shows that there's still a lot of work ahead.
