Newsweek Poll: Too Little, Too Late? (Bush 37% - Dems Lead Scum 53% to 39%)
Edited on Sat Oct-28-06 11:17 AM by Mark E. Smith
President Bush made a big show this week of being open to changing his
Iraq policy. It made a difference-but only with his base and only at the margins.
The new NEWSWEEK poll finds likely voters still favoring the Democrats.

Oct 28, 2006 - As the race for Congress enters the homestretch, the
Republicans find themselves limping to the finish line, according to the
new Newsweek poll. President Bush's approval rating continues a slow but
steady climb-from an all-time Newsweek poll low of 33 percent three weeks
ago to 37 percent today. But it may be too little too late: if the midterm
elections were held today, 53 percent of those likely to go to the polls would
vote for the Democratic candidate in their Congressional district versus just
39 percent for the Republican.

10. Hopefully. some of those undecideds are repubs not planning to vote
their ticket but unwilling to officially register that opinion in a poll. In reality, I suppose most of that eight percent are willfully ignorant dopes.

16. Or not thinking. Or not listening. Or possessing no logical
reasoning skills.

19. It's like in 2004. The undecideds were confused.
Edited on Sat Oct-28-06 06:40 PM by SleeplessinSoCal
But, possibly some of the undecideds of 2004 who broke for Bush now realize they voted for the wrong guy. That would explain some of the numbers today.

3. But his alleged "change of stance" was no change at all...
Just a new wrapping for the same old pile of bullshit. Anybody who was at all swayed by that is as dumb as a box of rocks.

9. They are hoping their god becomes a good god?
Edited on Sat Oct-28-06 11:20 AM by LiberalFighter
They are praying that bush gives them a good reason to vote for republicans?

Those undecided at this time might not even bother voting and could had been leaning towards republicans.

4. Bush's big show: Much Ado About Nothing...
Let's pretend we're willing to "Change Course" and call some piddly little thing "Changing Course". That's like promising to be open to turning the car to avoid a tree, but instead just considering turning on the turn signals (or making the hand gesture to indicate a turn); only the idiots among us actually think this particular driver would bother to actually go through with turning the wheel (heck, he doesn't even have his hands on the steering wheel--has it tied in position with a rope).

6. 39% who should pack up and fucking leave
Anyone who supports bush has no love of constitutional liberties or gives a fuck about their fellow human beings. 39% who continue to hate. 39% who continue to be force fed lies by right wing radio.

20. We need a huge margin or we lose. If it's close, we're sunk.

8. Tough To Make Much Of This
National poll numbers are nice, but what matters on Nov. 7 is the races for Senate and House seats. If 65 percent of Americans vote Democrat, but 51 percent vote Republican in the area where there are battleground seats (or 48 percent of people, plus the three percent from Diebold), we still have the same problem.

21. Repugs will permit the dems to take the house, but will steal
the senate. If I were at lying cheating crook, that is what I would do.

And with the massive hate ads the week before the election
everyone will think they worked and it was a legit election.
