What would the election have looked like if large stockpiles of WMDs had been found in Iraq?

Bush would have won Wisconson, But It Might have cost him New Mexico. Nothing really changed.

...Why would WMD's being in Iraq cost him New Mexico?

And what if the supreme court of Massachusetts had not ignited the same sex marriage artificial fire?

Bush would have won in a landslide.

If WMDs were found it wouldn't effect Bush in a negative way; he'd have a great shot at taking any state within about 3-4 percent or so. A solid win, but short of landslide proportions IMHO.

A positive impact, definitely not negative. We wouldn't have had any of that 'Bush lied' crap(though we'd still have anti-Bush crap). It would snag him more swing voters for sure. Maybe a 2-3% increase all around.

It wouldn't have affected the election.  Most of the people that voted for Bush thought that they had found WMDs in Iraq anyway.

It would have changed nothing - even if they did exsist WMD were a ridiculous reason for the war.

Now the gay marriage thing - that had some real influence.
