Two weeks ago, I was quoted in Muckraker casting doubt on how important environmental issues were in the past election. Two new polls — from Zogby on global warming and Greenberg Quinlan Rosner on energy (PDF of full memo) — force me to reconsider that position.

Seems Republican’s failure on energy and gasoline prices was the top concern, by a 20 point margin, among Democratic voters who considered voting Republican. Energy was also a top concern of other key groups.

Read them and smile!
