  • That poll question is annoying. I've seen it misused in almost every instance it's been cited, most commonly as a stat saying who people would vote for. It is not. I would not like to see him re-elected. I didn't prefer him in 2000, and I don't prefer him now. But, I will vote for him, surely, unless the Democrats get someone I can agree with more than 10 percent of the time.

    So far the only guy I could possibly consider voting for is Senator Joe Biden [biden04.com], from the great state of Delaware, but even he would need to do a lot of work to convince me to vote for him over Bush.

    But I digress. The poll question only reflects if people would want Bush or someone else, but it has nothing to do with whom they will support in the election next year. He could get 10% in that poll, but if you ask whom people will vote for (assuming Bush is the GOP candidate), the number could still be well over 50%.
