UPI ^ | 3-12-04

Posted on 03/12/2004 5:39:08 PM PST by Indy Pendance

WASHINGTON, March 12 (UPI) -- A survey by a Washington pollster released Friday found a majority of those surveyed think terrorists would prefer to have Sen. John F. Kerry as president.

The Andres McKenna Research survey of 800 registered voters shows Kerry defeating Bush in the general election, 47 percent to 45 percent, with 9 percent undecided.

Asked, "Who do you think the terrorists would prefer to have as president," the independent poll found that 60 percent said Kerry while 25 percent said Bush.

The poll, which has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points, also found that 51 percent of those surveyed thought Bush would win the 2004 election against 39 percent who said Kerry.

So a majority would vote for the terrorist candidate?

These polls make no sense.

The sad part of this poll is what you can read between the lines. Many will vote for Kerry even though they know "Terrorists Support Kerry for President".

So the Sheeple realize that Kerry is a terrorist sympathizer but nevertheless support him over Bush? Pathetic.

Kerry will win. He's our man.
If he can't do it, no one can.

It's a Republican polling firm, still I bet the results are accurate. Kerry 'the goth Marie Antoinette' is dead meat no matter how much cake he promises the peasants.

Considering the fact that GWB is kicking terrorist ass, of course they would prefer Kerry...or anybody other than GWB.

What kind of asinine poll is this?

I don't know how the Kerry campaign is going to get around the growing UN scandal. It is becoming more and more likely that France and Russia will be exposed for taking bribes from Saddam Hussein to prevent the US invasion and that top officials in the UN were all on the take as well. How will Kerry spin his statements regarding deferring military authority to the UN? How will he spin his Francophilia? If the investigation of the UN gets going this summer, as Newt Gingrich is suggesting, Kerry is finished.

This is silly. They surveyed, I am sure, NON-terrorists as to their guess about the preference of terrorists, a demographic that, I am sure, virtually none of them knew personally. Next they'll survey Jews about who they think will get the Moslem vote, and then survey idiots about who will get the high IQ vote. And the results will be about as helpful.

I feel for the good people of Spain and their 9-11. I haven't heard a thing about this attack from the Scary Kerry thugs. Why, because he doesn't give a hoot about Spain or any other U.S. ally. Kerry stated that he wants to apologize to the terrorists and make up for all of Bush's three years of blunders. With a guy like Kerry, terrorists will be welcome to do their thing, of which is to kill the Christian world.

Not being a terrorist myself, nor knowing any personally, I'd take a wild guess that they might prefer Lebanese-American Ralph Nader. Or they might vote for the President who was sending foreign aid to the Taliban right up to September 11th.

The Washington Times

Eighteen months before the 2004 election, President Bush appears in a strong position to win another term. Ongoing voter reservations about the credibility of the Democratic field, as well as emerging concerns about who will effectively prosecute the war on terrorism, pose huge hurdles for potential White House rivals and major advantages for Mr. Bush.

The point ReformedLiberal is trying to make is that even though a large majority think that terrorists would prefer to have Kerry as president, many of those same people evidently said they would vote for him.

That certainly suggests that a lot of people have confused priorities.

Well, according to Kerry, he has been told in private by foreign leaders that they really want him to beat Bush. Kim Jong Il, Fidel Castro, Saddam Hussein, Assad, etc. They really want for him to win.

Right now, this isn't resonating.

By November, it sure as hell will.

This poll is not surprising at all.

This shows the mistrust of Kerry (on the issue of terrorism)by the American people.

This poll also shows some fundamental irony for Kerry this fall - should there be an event of terror attack, it will reforcus the public on the issue of security instead of silly crap like cheap drugs, different ways to count employment blah blah - and if there is no more terror attck, the public will maintain its high approval for Bush on this issue...

The bomb attack over Spain could impact the public sentiment a bit here, most people are ranking the issue of terrorism much lower than other domestic issues, and I wonder if the Spain bombings would refocus the public on this issue.

Maybe they polled too many of

Lots of folks might lie to the
questioner. But even THEY know
W is the tough one, & W is right
at break-even territory here.
