A slight tightening today, and the candidates are essentially tied with less than 100 days to go until the election.

What’s on voters’ minds? Well…

As with everything in a political election season, there is a partisan divide on priorities. Among Democrats, 53% say the economy is most important, 17% name domestic issues as their primary concern, and 14% say national security.

For Republicans, 35% focus first on national security, 31% on the economy, and 14% on fiscal issues.

As for those not affiliated with either major party, 51% say the economy is number one and 16% say the top issue is national security.

These numbers definitely favor Obama, so if he can keep dominating the economic discussion, it’ll be hard for McCain to make much headway.
