Attacks Prompt Voters to Rethink Party Loyalties

( - The number of voters who describe themselves as "undecided" has escalated in the weeks since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, according to a poll conducted for House GOP Conference Chairman J.C. Watts (R-Okla.). Roll Call, the Capitol Hill newspaper, reported the results of the poll on Monday. As a result of the poll, the newspaper said, Watts plans to send a memo to House Republicans this week, telling them Americans are "rethinking long-held beliefs and positions." Watts will also say, "Millions of Americans who previously backed Republican or Democrat polices [are rethinking] their priorities as well as which party to support." He believes this gives Republicans the opportunity to expand their base, but only if GOP candidates place security "first and foremost."
