Poll Crunch for 2008 so far...
Bush has been so horribly thought of for so long now that I gave up even doing a Poll Crunch. I decided to do the most exhaustive Crunch yet so I can get back on track. Since it is an election year and since it has been a while since I delved into the publics opinion of Bush, I was prepared for a shock.
Has the surge helped our man in the White House? Has he climbed out of his funk? Perhaps all the hullabaloo of the current race of the Presidency has caused America to rethink old W. My crunch took 17 separate polls done from the 1st of the year until today and averaged them all out. So with no more BS here is the Poll Crunch...
We like the guy!: 30%
We dislike the guy: 66%
We are too stupid to know: 4%
On another note in the Virginia primary yesterday Obama got 500,000 democratic votes, Clinton 300 and some thousand. McCain got 133,000 votes. In other words Obama got almost 5 times more votes in Virginia than McCain got. Heck even Hilary beat McCain in Virginia.
Another telling bit of trivia was that in South Carolina the Democratic vote grew by 82% since 2004 while the number of Republicans casting a vote shrank by 24%. The country is clearly looking for something new. Since we are stuck with the Dem's and the Rep's we keep ping-ponging hoping that one side will eventually get it right.
