4. down! down! down!
I'm waiting to get drunk on the nastiest bottle of hooch I can find when I see a "public" (CNN, MSNBC) poll for * that's at 40% or less.

Mainly because, I just can't wait to see the media turn on him, if his poll numbers keep dropping, then the media will smell the blood in the water and go after him (as in pre-9/11 days)

5. I keep hoping the media begins to be more objective but I think
Edited on Wed Apr-07-04 12:06 PM by Mountainman
that many of the cable outlets and radio networks have too much riding on Bush having 4 more years. I doubt these folks will turn on Bush.

But, if they whoring gets to be really transparent things might change a bit.

10. they will turn on bush
If his numbers plummet and he becomes a liability to their profits. That's one of the best Achilles Heels of the GOP and its marriage to Corporate America. They will bugger each other to death over a buck, and if it costs them viewers (there by forcing them to drop advertising rates) they will turn on bushco to get the ratings up so they can continue to ask for silly amounts of money for a 30 second prime time commercial slot.

Business in America is to first make as much money as you can, if that means turning on your "masters" or "allies" then turn on them. If you look around, you'll see it all the time. Its also why so many companies have remained "profitable" (to the share holders) by screwing around with layoffs, payroll, benefits, and insurance. In huge corporations, saving 1/2% on insurance rates by switching to a crappy policy can translate into millions "saved" for the board of directors and share holders.

the media will turn when it becomes apparent that bush can't get them good ratings when they parrot whatever drivel comes out of his arid head.

8. I drink the good stuff now
but getting nasty drunk on an event as positive as that is against my type... which is the whole point. When the media turns on * it will seem to them that its against the media's "type" to question and assault bushco. :toast:

and while I'm drunk on Mad Dog or SoCo rotgut, I'll howl at the moon and startle the neighbors :evilgrin:

9. I'm waiting for double-digits and Bush below 40% approval.
That would be better. It would also be good if a center-right independent would enter the race. Maybe Donald Trump? That would be even better.

11. Yeah, a Ross Perot like candidate in the GOP would be....
like a wet dream right now. But I'm doubtful that will happen. The neocon lockstep is way too tight. Its like the Left-Wing Lock in Hockey. When it works its an unstoppable defense.

The only "x-factor" I see in the GOP is the huge body of disaffected moderates wondering what to do.

In some ways we have it lucky, we know where we are in the political world, and know where we want to go.

The moderate republicans have a really vexing questions on their hands. Bushco has tossed the moderate platform out of the window, and everything he does is an affront to the moderate ideal, especially in the all important "Foreign Relations" that the "great communicator" (Regan they call him) built up.

But, on the other hand, if they feel betrayed by the party's nutters, who do they turn to? Its a hard pill to swallow for the moderate republicans to vote for a democratic candidate just to weaken the neocon power base so they can take back their party.

I really pity the moderate republicans, they are in a worse position than us "loony" liberals.

12. I wouldn't be so sure.
I think there are some McCain's, Chafee's and Hagel's who aren't too happy. If the right confluence of events occurs, we could see a Perot II emerge suddenly. No one expected H. Ross Perot in 1992. Some operatives better get busy looking into this.

14. that's my point
a left field GOP moderate running independently in the coming race would be a big boon for Kerry. At worst it would nullify this Nader stuff. At best it would fracture the GOP into possibly 2 irreconcilable pieces.

18. Don't think that's viable.
He would get less than half a percent of the vote. The fundies aren't ripe for splitting, but the old-line conservatives and some populist right-leaners are.

15. Kerry never seems to get above 48%
Has any poll shown Kerry with a majority of the popular vote? Considering how Bush's approval ratings have taken a nosedive, you'd expect Kerry to be doing better than he is.

16. Election 2004 Congressional Poll: Democrats 44%, Republicans, 34%
http://www.rasmussenreports.com/Congressional_Ballot%20...

Vote for Congress: Democrats 44% Republicans 34% Other 5% Not Sure 17%

Wednesday April 07, 2004--If the Congressional elections were held today, forty-four percent (44%) of Likely Voters say they would vote for a Democrat and 34% for a Republican.

That 10-point edge matches the Democrat's biggest lead of the year. While 79% of Democrats say they will vote for a Democrat in Congress and 75% of Republicans say they will vote for their party, the big difference comes from unaffiliated voters. Among these voters, Democrats are preferred for Congress by a 21-point margin.

This 10-point lead for the Democrats comes after several days of bad news from Iraq. Following that news, the President's Job Approval Ratings have fallen to their lowest level of the year. John Kerry has also gained his biggest lead of the year (6-points) in our daily tracking poll.

19. We Must Hope This Holds, Sir
A thorough house-cleaning is on order, particularly in the House of Representatives.

"People getting their fundamental political interests wrong is what American political life is all about."

22. Kerry also is in lead in the latest TIPP/IBD poll
This is the first poll by a major business journal in which Kerry leads Bush. Until recently, every Wall Street Journal , Business Week and other poll that had a business related orientation did not have Bush either a little ahead or in a tie with Bush.


TIPP/IBD (3/29-4/3) 43% 45% - Kerry +2

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/bush_vs_kerry.html


IN fact, this site does an average of all of the polls since March 1st, and the average of all polls has Kerry ahead of Bush

46.3 % Kerry to 44 % Bush
