A Non-Priority

To me the most interesting bit from the Washington Poll released yesterday was not that it shows Patty Murray ahead of Dino Rossi by a healthy margin, or that 47% of respondents think we're "Seriously on the wrong track". Instead, when asked what the major issue of the campaign was for them, only 9% said education. That's a tie for 6th place with "Don't Know" and puts schools behind health care reform and the national debt in the rankings.

Given the share of the state budget devoted to education, and all the conversation around the Race to the Top, I'd have expected it to place higher.

More from Horse's Ass on the Rossi/Murray angle here.
