    According to recent polls that have come out 60 percent of Americans thinks this Bill Ayers thing is a complete NON-ISSUE....well DUH! people care more about what the next president will do to fix the economy, health care and all domestic issues. BUT to stay on terrorist and radical issues why has it not been more explored that McCains white house transition chief lobbied for saddam Hussien or that McCain was on the board of the U.S. Council Of World Freedom back in the 80's , a right wing radical group that was well known to have had racists and anti-semites in it?

    Recent polls of WHOM may I ask?

    Of course Ayers is a non-issue to most dems, who also wish he had bombed more and killed more cops.

    But to mainstream US, he's a little more of an issue. Not him personally, but he propensity of a presidential candidate to court terrorists and criminals.

    Except for the entitlement believing, "gimme gimme gimme at the expense of others" assholes who think that everyone else owes them what they want and need, and believe the government exists to ensure that redistribution system

    Many do not believe the Ayers issue to be a big issue because of the love affair of the DEMs (and especially the far left) with Obama... when it is a direct line issue towards leadership judgment... not like anyone thinks Obama supports domestic terrorism, but many do find it disturbing that one puts scruples behind to use a figure such as Ayers as a springboard, just as others find it disturbing that Obama's strategy is taken almost directly out of "Rules for Radicals"

    my bad...here is the poll qoute off abcnews.com...The ABC News/Washington Post poll found that the constant barrage of attacks is hurting McCain, particularly when he targeted Obama's relationship with William Ayers, a founder of the 1960s radical anti-war group the Weather Underground.

    The poll found that 60 percent of voters say Ayers is not a real issue.

    Most people didn't care that McCain had a black child, either. And yet somehow, when they went to vote, it mattered.

    That sounds about right. 40% care, 40% don't care (because they support Obama) and 20% were asleep.
