Yeah, Bush has about a 52% approval rating among voters. That means you need more than the ABB crowd to break 50%.

You could have said that about Reagan-Mondale though.

Well you would have been nuts:



Reagan was up 20.

I'm just praying that SOMEONE will come along and dismantle the Republicrat regime.

It would take a gargantuan personality to do that.

hahaha . . . now that would be scary.  Trump would be running around yelling "You're fired" while fixing his hair, and Oprah would be chasing him saying "Donald.  Donald, get back here.  You're late for your appointment with Dr. Phil."

hehehe

I really doubt it will be close.

It would help to know what your definition is of "close" from an electoral vote point of view.

I mean, for example, do you consider 288-250 close?

Oh well.  I bet they could buy ads on every single program and win quite a few states Smiley

Heck, I might support them for my first vote ever if they did that Wink

After tonight's speech I think McCain will be unbeatable in 2008.  By campaigning hard for Bush this year, Bush will return the support in 2008.  

If he runs in 2008, McCain would defeat any Democratic challenger.

It is becoming increasingly clear Sen. Kerry will not be elected in November.  Just turn on CSPAN and you'll see why.  Also, the latest polls have Bush's approval rating soaring in to the low 50s.

Lets hope for the best in 2006 (time will tell if we have a chance then either) and rally behind a strong candidate for 2008.

Kerry will win.  He's the comeback kid.  He will eke out a win in Ohio to carry him to victory.  Columbus is beginning to trend democratic - those independents in the middle of the state are souring on the Bush administration's failed economic policies.

What's up hoops..  While I agree that Kerry can win, I don't see how he is the "comeback kid".  Kerry is from Mass. and elections are not too close there. 2004 primary was no comeback.  Kerry won a caucas and Dean self destructed  

He was behind against Weld in 1996 for most of the campaign, and he was 3rd behind Dean and Gephardt in Iowa 2004 as late as 1 week befor ethe caucus.

The Iowa Caucuses were for the Democrats. His Senate race was in a very liberal Democratic state. He is running nationwide now. This isn't Iowa. This isn't Massachusetts. Kerry had his time in the spotlight. He was the center of attention for awhile. It's Bush's turn now and America see that he is, without a doubt, the best man for the job.

I think whoever wins will do so decicively enough that we'll know the winner before the official state-by-state results come in.

No wanting to beat to death the obvious but...

3 debates
2 months
3 broadcast networks

Iraq
The Economy

There are still a few bumps along the way for Bush till term #2

It's half time at the Superbowl.

Bush is up a field goal.

There is a lot of football left to be played.

I think Bush will open and hold a 3-4 point lead by November, but with Nader off the ballot in key states and a high turnout, the race will tighten. Kerry is good at coming back from the dead, even after a 'character assassination' Kerry will gain states like Missouri, while loosing in states like Wisconsin. I've said it before and I'll say it again, it will be close run thing right to the polls close in the West. Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico and Arizona will be 'Too Close to Call' for longer than usual, and i think Kerry will take Nevada and New Mexico (with Colorado VERY CLOSE) and take a 274 victory or something similar. Expect to see a lot of grey and not much red and blue on the map until later on.
