I think he will be re-elected.
- High approval rating.
- No solid opposition (yet).
- He's the incumbent.
Religion will be an issue with Lieberman. Plus, he seems to support Bush on most fronts, except his tax cuts: alienating a lot of liberal dems via his
support on Iraq, God, and other causes (I believe he was for the school voucher thing at one point). The other contenders are unknown to the American
populace. Gore is out and Hillary won't run yet.
So far, no strong 3rd party candidate is making any noise. If the greens throw someone up (Nader?) that will hurt the dems, probably more so this time
around if a moderate democrat like Lieberman gets the Democratic nomination. If McCain says ëwhat the hell, I am not getting any younger,í that will
hurt Bush BIG TIME ñ I might be inclined to vote for the ëStraight Talk Expressí like I did in the primaries. If the economy continues getting better
and Iraq is mopped up quickly this will be bad for the Dems.
As it stands I donít see how the President can fail getting re-elected. This will probably be another landslide re-election, Reagan-style. Sorry
