John McCain’s campaign has posted a “strategy briefing” from campaign manager Rick Davis. These sorts of briefings or memos are made for external consumption, of course. But there are some interesting details in the PowerPoint.
Davis says that campaign polling shows that nationwide, the economy is the top issue voters are concerned about, with the Iraq war No. 2, and energy and gas costs in third place. But in the northwest, the war is the top issue. That’s true in only a few regions in the country, according to the McCain campaign. Here, the economy is second and gas prices are third.
Washington and Oregon are shown as “toss-up” states, though we’re not mentioned when Davis talks about swing states where the campaign thinks it has a good chance of winning.
