    From the few Bush supporters I know, and the ones I've seen or heard on the media, the issues are completely irrelevant. The people who have decided to vote for Bush have not done so based on his foreign policy or domestic policy. The kind of reasons I've heard all run along the lines of:

    • I've always voted Republican, and I always will.
    • He has a good strong handshake and a friendly smile. (Paraphrased from a "NASCAR dad" interview)
    • We're in a war, and we shouldn't change presidents midstream. (Mangled metaphor)
    • He has a good strong Christian faith.
    Some are not for Bush so much as against Kerry, but the reasons again are not along the lines of "I disagree with Kerry that ..." but more like "Bush said about Kerry that ..."

    Raising issues and news will never change such thinking.
