Woo Hoo!
Presumptive Democratic nominee Sen. John Kerry leads President Bush in the latest CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll, although the race appears to be fluid and remains close. The poll, released Monday, found that among likely voters, Kerry was the choice of 52 percent and Bush 44 percent in a two-way matchup, with a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points. In a three-way race with Independent candidate Ralph Nader, Kerry had 50 percent, Bush 44 percent and Nader 2 percent.

First off, polls amount to CRAP!
Secondly, wouldn't you agree it depends on what poll and to whom it is with?

"NPR Poll: Likely Voters Focused Keenly on Election"
www.npr.org...

Excerpt:

"The poll also revealed an electorate almost evenly divided between President Bush and his presumed Democratic opponent, Sen. John Kerry. At 53 percent, Bush's approval rating remains healthy. But when asked whom they'd vote for today, 47 percent of likely voters chose Bush, while 45 percent picked Kerry -- a virtual tie."

Trying to pick a side between Kerry and Bush in the next elections is like voting for Dumb or Dumber. I wouldn't vote for Kerry and much less Bush. But I fear people will just vote for Kerry just to get Bush out of office.

I guess you intended to NOT quote this from your article?

"But most voters think president will be re-elected"

I guess you forgot to include the full poll (pdf document) from your article, where it shows how Bush's approval ratings are at an all time low, and that it seems they will continue to go down. The actual vote percentages (45 and 47 respectively) for kerry and bush, are within their projected margin of error...meaning kerry could be ahead of bush, vice versa. Anyway, it is pointless to look at an abstract of 992 people and determine what the election will bring.

Your right, my apologies, this is what is funny after reading what you intially mentioned in this thread:

"Trying to pick a side between Kerry and Bush in the next elections is like voting for Dumb or Dumber. I wouldn't vote for Kerry and much less Bush. But I fear people will just vote for Kerry just to get Bush out of office." :shk:

Perhpas you didn't read or simply ignored my initial first words in this Shoktek?!?

"First off, polls amount to CRAP!"

How about the second thing I mentioned?!?

"Secondly, wouldn't you agree it depends on what poll and to whom it is with?"

:shk:

What exactly do you find funny with that. Oh so you're like some people who seem to think Kerry is here to save America? I think both of them suck. Its not a dem or a repub issue... its just how I see it from studying both candidates.

Yet, you still posted a poll, and you still called him out on parts of his...so I called you out on yours. It goes both ways..and seems that you only read what you "want" to read.

I think they both suck too. To tell the truth I wanted Dean to pull through just because I didn't like any of them very much.

The Choice between Bush and Kerry is not really a choice in my opinion.

I really could give less than a crap if you want to bash or not. And frankly I dont trust any politician. You have to be a natural born liar to be a politician... that makes them untrustworthy from the start.

EDIT: I shouldn't say all politicians.... but most of them are.

Hitlery, McCain, Dean, Gore....any of those?
If you trust "no" politician...I assume that you will never vote? If you never vote, then how can you complain? Are you and others justified in complaining and bashing a president, whomever he is, when you never voted for a president period?

I wouldn't vote for any of the ones you mentioned above. And you really got things twisted. In my opinion the ones who have no right to complain are the ones who voted the assholes into office in the first place. And second. If you must know, of all the candidates this year the one I found to be the best of them was John Edwards. Which isnt saying much since thats like saying he was the least bad of all of them.

Thank you Ocelot, for the reply.
Don't get frustrated or upset but I am still failing to grasp the concept of mistrust you hold for any politician?
Will you ever vote?
And if you ever do, and your candidate doesn't meet your level of expectations, will you eventually fall back on the "I don't and didn't trust him or any politicians?

You like Edwards out of all the viable candidates and yet still exhibits desdain or mistrust for politicians in general? Then if thats so, why would anyone that feels that way want to ever vote or/and then wish to have a say on matters pertaining to such?
