Sorry to keep flogging away on this point, but a new Houston Chronicle poll provides more fodder for Ballot Box's pet argument that immigration is simply not that potent as a campaign issue. Only one in 10 Harris County surveyed said it was a top priority for them.
"I think people wake up worrying about their heath care bills, or costs or inflation," [pollster David] Hill said. "I don't think anybody woke up -- even in Houston, Texas, this morning -- worried about an invasion of illegal aliens."
In the Chronicle poll, 35 percent of those surveyed name the economy as their most important issue. Fifteen percent named the war in Iraq, and 11 percent said health care.
