Quote of the Day

May 6, 2005

Chuck Todd, the highly regarded editor of National Journal’s Hotline: “the use of ballot initiatives to drive turnout (especially in presidential battleground states) could lead us down a very familiar path in 2008. But instead of the key issue being gay marriage, as it was in 2004, it will be immigration.

There’s a disconnect between the politically correct legislators and media in Washington and the general public on the issue. Call it xenophobia if you want, but these initiatives are popular with the public, particularly as the economy stagnates and some lower-income workers are looking for someone to blame.”
