"The poll indicates that Bush compares poorly with his presidential predecessors, with 28 percent saying that he's the worst ever. Forty percent rate Bush's presidency as poor, and 31 percent say he's been a good president."

83% of the President's critics could not judge a dog show.

> 83% of the President's critics could not judge a dog show.

Interesting take, since these are the majority of voters that you are talking about, I guess it supports the Supreme Court reversing elections or those in power who agree with you to use government to spy and keep tabs on their enemies so that they cannot participate in democracy, even as that is the excuse we use to be in Iraq.

But perhaps 93% of the President's supporters might have some judgement defects as well, so it makes it all the more important to allow the marginal moderate voters to make these decisions ... the ones that are still capable of thinking and changing their minds.

what do you base your numbers on Walter? Care to provide some stats to back up your claim?

My numbers have been normed and adjusted with correction factors left over from Hansen's Urban Heat Island Correction Factors. Hansen will never miss them.
