12/8/15, "Security Issues Give GOP an Edge," Morning Consult, Reid Wilson

"A plurality of voters now say national security issues are their top concern as they consider their options in next year’s elections-and those voters overwhelmingly say they plan to vote Republican.

Asked what set of issues are top of mind when thinking about their votes next year, 34 percent of all registered voters choose security issues, while 30 percent say the economy is number one. Republicans, conservatives and-surprisingly-women are all more likely to pick security as their top issue, while pluralities of men and Democrats choose the economy.

Security issues, in the wake of terror attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, Calif., are giving Republicans a clear political edge. Those who say security is their top concern say they would choose a generic Republican candidate running for a U.S. House seat over a generic Democrat by a wide 56 percent to 25 percent margin. Democrats continue to lead among voters who say the economy is most important, 41 percent to 34 percent....

The Morning Consult survey polled 2,047 registered voters between Dec. 3-7, for a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points.

State of the Presidential race

The good news for Donald Trump: He’s still leading among Republicans and Republican-leaning independents, with 41 percent of the vote in the latest Morning Consult survey. Ben Carson’s collapse continues; he’s down to 12 percent in the latest poll, just ahead of Sen. Marco Rubio’s (R-Fla.) 10 percent. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) finishes fourth at 7 percent, with former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) in fifth at 5 percent."...chart from Morning Consult
