Elizabeth Edwards’ fight with cancer is a national story with local importance. I personally think it’s hard to form solid opinions on such an emotional issue, but the pollsters still have to do their jobs. The Edwards’ supporters are probably rallying behind the decision to continue John’s presidential campaign, while their biggest detractors are finding this a good excuse to be cynical. See Rush Limbaugh.
The latest USA Today/Gallup poll asked America what they thought John Edwards should do and by a 2-1 margin they support him staying in the race.
