This Pew Research Center Report
shows that Americans trust the Democrats to deal with the most pressing problems facing the country. ..the Democratic Party holds a sizable advantage over the GOP as the party better able to handle the country's most important problem (the economy). Fully 41% believe the Democratic Party can do a better job of handling the nation's top problem, compared with 27% who say the Republican Party. This represents a major shift from a year ago, when the public split about evenly on which party could better address the most important national problem...The Democratic Party is more trusted to handle every specific problem mentioned, with the lone exception of security and terrorism, and in most cases its advantage has grown significantly compared with a year ago
As the Bush administration continues in it's ineptitude, security and terrorism will certainly swing to the Democrats as well.
