Presidential Politics — Forget National Security, Isn’t it all about Jobs and the Domestic Economy?

The latest WSJ / NBC poll found that 61% of Americans approve of President Obama’s handling of national security. That’s the good news. The bad news is only 6% really care and believe that national security should be the top issue in the presidential election. The remaining 94% of Americans think the primary issue is the domestic economy and jobs. And only 39% of Americans approve of the way the President is handling the economy. Given the continuing poor state of the global and domestic economies this spells trouble for the Obama reelection campaign.
