Marc Lynch pointed out yesterday that of the 10% of voters who thought Iraq was the most important issue in Tuesday’s presidential election, 59% supported Obama and 39% supported McCain.
Now, this statistic may be somewhat distorted because McCain, Bush, and Republicans do their darnedest to conflate terrorism and Iraq. It does suggest, however, that people who care the most about Iraq have more confidence in Obama than in McCain to handle the war properly.
This is something we can build on, even if people don’t care about Iraq too much right now given the disastrous state of the economy. Iraq will be back in the headlines sooner or later.
