We've Got Issues... What Are Yours?
As a part of the joint Washington Post/washingtonpost.com Bellwether Project, we picked eight issues that could decide the outcome of the elections in November.
As of July, we believe President Bush's approval rating, corruption in Congress, the economy, immigration, and the Iraq war are the top issues that could determine the battle for control of the House and Senate.
Other factors determining how The Post and post.com are analyzing the midterms are trends like the Democrats' dominance in the Northeast, heavy Republican majorities in the South, and the list of ballot initiatives that could influence turnout in key states.
Now we've laid out what we think the most important issues are, we want to know what you think.
What are top issues on your mind as you prepare to vote in November? How about your friends, family members and neighbors? What political trends do you see taking shape that may effect the election?
Please post your thoughts in the comments box below. After we receive a sizeable number of submissions, we will return to the space to discuss the issues and ideas that you shared with us.
