It was as if the New York Times was sending a signal to its readers and the nation's opinion leaders: Get off the war on terror and focus on the economy. It's the way for the Democrats to win. Deliberately or not, this survey was one of the most heavily weighted that the newspaper conducted during the year. 4 percent Democratic edge in the survey sample. This five-point "correction," of course, had a very direct impact on the data and the resulting conclusions that the Times published as fact. Still, despite weighting the sample, the newspaper's thesis that the national agenda had shifted away from terror and toward the economy ran into difficulty from the very start of the survey.

Then, as our troops raced through the Iraqi desert, bypassing towns and cities as they rushed toward Baghdad, the media told us that the military had made what might prove a fatal mistake in opening up our supply lines to harassment by enemy guerrillas left behind in the dash to the enemy's capital. No less a military authority than CBS's Lesley Stahl lectured Secretary of State and former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Colin Powell on the March 26 edition of 48 Hours that the American "rear was exposed" and our supply lines in danger.

From the beginning, the Times had been pushing the idea on Americans and their opinion leaders that the economy was getting worse. Yet somehow this concern never caught on with the American people. In fact, in the October poll, respondents said, by 59-39, that it wasn't getting worse. Asked how the economy had changed recently, only 39 percent said it was "getting worse," 46 percent said it was "staying about the same," and 13 percent felt it was "getting better"for a total of 59 percent who felt it wasn't deteriorating.
