Mis-leading on morality

Nobody has a monopoly on morality
- By Diane Carman, Denver Post, CO (11/9/2004)
"If you listen to the pollsters and the analysts, 2004 is the year morality stole the election. Exit polls found that 22 percent of voters last week cited moral values as the top issue in the presidential race."
"Never mind that those same exit polls found that the economy was ranked first by 20 percent of voters. The statistics on the economy have been thoroughly ignored by the pundits, overwhelmed by the far more titillating subject of an outbreak of moral values."
And most political gurus out there define red America's moral values with little more than expedience in mind."


PS I just want to emphasize that when people say the biggest issue was "Moral Values" they are talking about 22%, not a majority of the voters and only 2% more than those who said The Economy (20%). (And they didn't specify what moral values they meant)
