Fact of the day: We're at war, but Americans aren't voting on foreign policy.
Midterm election exit polls found only 8 percent of voters saying that a foreign policy issue was a voting consideration for them, and more generally, national polls show just 11 percent citing a foreign policy issue as the most important problem facing the nation. This is the lowest registration of international concerns since immediately before the 9/11 attacks.

A 43 percent-plurality says that the reason there has not been another terrorist attack in America since 2001 is mostly the result of luck. More than a third (37 percent) credit the government doing a good job, while 13 percent say America is a difficult target for terrorists. The public has been divided on this question since it was first asked in 2005.
