More on moral values

There's been so much speculative commentary about the exit poll results and Why Bush Won; it's nice to finally see some new data. Pew found that moral values are the top issue voters choose from a canned list, but not when they same question is asked free-response style. But don't conclude that Bush has no "moral" mandate. Among Bush voters, Pew found moral values to be the top issue for a clear plurality when chosen from a list, and for free response, almost tied (27%-28%) with Iraq and terrorism combined. They've plenty of other interesting findings, such as what "moral values" means as an election issue to various folk; take a look.
