Will Bu$h get a jump in the polls from these attacks?
Will these attacks in London scare enough Republicans back under Evil Dick's left bosom for some more nursing of the Krazy Kooil Aid?

If so, how much will Bu$h gain in the polls? I say he will keep his head above water and reach over 50%.

2. I don't see how he could get a poll boost.
If he had gotten Bin Ladden like he should have, I don't believe London would have had those bombs planted. There are those crazies who believe anything but come on. The leader of the main group of terrorist who murdered over 4,000 Americans is still out there plotting more murder. If brush had gotten Bin Ladden, this never would have happened.

5. A Quick Spurt Then A Precipitous Drop
Sure, they'll duck under his wing for a moment and then someone will ask the question, 'weren't we supposed to be winning this thing?'

Then his numbers will plummet again.

7. I think it will probably be mixed
It may depend on how the surrogates play it - if Republicans in Congress and his followers outside put pressure to make immediate changes in the wake of this disaster, well they could get some advantage out of that. Unless Democrats, for once, play it smart and comment on taking political advantage from this tragedy.

ANyway too many variables.

9. I expect that he will
And now Chaney will pop back up from his spiderhole, wiping the C4 from his cuffs, to explain why the bombing means that they were right to invade Iraq and how even greater restrictions on civil liberties will be needed to defend freedom.

10. Rasmussen already has him up six points
President Bush Job Approval

Thursday July 07, 2005--Fifty-two percent (52%) of American adults approve of the way George W. Bush is performing his role as President. This is just the second time his Approval Rating has topped 50% since June 10. It remains to be seen whether this improvement reflects lasting change or is merely statistical noise.

Forty-seven percent (47%) disapprove of the President's performance.

Just 15% of voters believe the U.S. would be safer today if we had avoided the War with Iraq and left Saddam Hussein in power.

Looks like he got a dead cat bounce out of Independence Day.

11. Don't think so, I think this is a reminder of all
the lies, stupidity and do-nothingness of his administration and term.

I say drop in polls.

12. I Doubt It.
People are growing WEARY of all of it all. And his odd and awkward "performance" today will only cause more people to see him for what he is.

13. Will his polling #'s rise?
Most Assuredly. My educated guess is an eight point rise immediately, dissipating after ten days, followed by a semi-permanent three point rise after * refers to the incident ad nauseum, the opportunistic bastard.

15. to be perfectly honest
Most people won't care about stuff on the other side of the world. People care right now more than ever about themselves and thats it. If Bush is just doing stuff over there and not here, they will get angry and his poll numbers would drop. Everyone is just too wrapped up in themselves i think to realize this has even happened to London

16. yes, that's the scary thing
the worse things get for them, the more tempted they will be to "allow" an attack because they know it will help them in the polls.

17. Remember Madrid...
He got a jump in his #'s then. If anything, his gain will be larger, because it was an English speaking country that was hit. And as far as average citizen apathy, I wouldn't count on it; Bush will invoke this incident again, and again, and again...it will soon become a part of the official Right party line.
