Via Media Matters for America, Editor and Publisher magazine reports on a Gallup Poll released Dec. 14 in which "moral values," defined broadly, was tied for fourth, not first, as "the most important problem facing this country today," behind the war in Iraq, terrorism, and the economy in general, and tied with unemployment/jobs. Only 10% of respondents picked it, compared to the 23% who picked the war in Iraq (or the 29% who chose some aspect of the economy). This could, as E&P suggests, deliver a "death blow" to the "moral values" hype--except that, as Media Matters for America points out, this finding has gone virtually unreported in the media.
