Americans See Weak Security At Ports and Borders

This recent CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll (Feb. 28-Mar. 1), shows the public is not comfortable with ports and borders security.

Further, the public doesn't think things have improved since 9/11.

Finally, Americans are only slightly more likely to trust the Republicans to protect US than Dems. In fact the gap has gone from 19 points in 2002, to 11 points in 2005 and now stands at 5 points.

Most would agree you can't govern by poll, but you can get an idea how the public perceives things. Perception can win elections, so it is incumbent on the Dems to keep pounding away at the Repugs on security. Convince the public their perceptions are correct. Dems can do much better at protecting our country.
