    I wouldn't get too excited about this.  Polls always show that Democratic leaning issues always score higher than Republican leaning issues in polls, but when you include names, it's a whole lot different.  There was a huge study on Ronald Reagan in the 80s that had polls that said 'Do you support issue X?'  On a massive scale, people were opposed to issues Reagan supported, and supported Democratic issues.  But, if you change the question to 'Do you support Ronald Reagan on issue X' the numbers reversed.
