Skip to comments.Kerry Would Beat (Jeb) Bush In 2008

Massachusetts senator John Kerry could win the presidency in 2008, according to a poll by Opinion Dynamics released by Fox News. 45 per cent of respondents would vote for the 2004 Democratic nominee in a head-to-head contest against Republican Florida governor Jeb Bush.
In other prospective elections, New York senator and former first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton leads three Republicans: Floridas Bush, Tennessee senator Bill Frist and New York governor George Pataki.
Rodham Clinton was first elected to the U.S. Senate in 2000, defeating Republican Rick Lazio by 12 per cent. She ruled out a presidential bid in 2004.
Other high-profile Republicans who may run for office in 2008such as former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani and Arizona senator John McCainwere not included in the survey. Current president George W. Bush is constitutionally barred from seeking a third term in office.
Thinking ahead to the next presidential election, if the 2008 presidential election were held today and the candidates were (insert choices here), for whom would you vote?
John Kerry (D) 45% - 37% Jeb Bush (R)
Hillary Rodham Clinton (D) 40% - 33% Bill Frist (R)
Hillary Rodham Clinton (D) 41% - 35% George Pataki (R)
Hillary Rodham Clinton (D) 46% - 35% Jeb Bush (R)
I believe Fox's tracking poll was the only one that had Kerry beating Bush this time. They are even worse then Zogby.
Here we go with polls again. I guess we still haven't learned our lesson about Americans. And this is so meaningless, it's meaningless. :)
More koolaid please!
I was not aware that Jeb Bush was going to be running for President in 2008. Besides...a lot can happen in four years, before the next Presidential Election, for instance, John Kerry might have an allergic reaction to Botox...then where would he be????
I would NOT vote for Jeb (nepotism) or Pataki (RINO).
A big thanks to FOX News for figuring this out. Now the Republican Party can save all of its fundraising money for 2008 and use it to focus on the 2010 congressional elections.
One more thing, John Kerry would still not be able to carry Jesusland (Michael's Moore's word for those states that voted for Bush) in 2008.
Jeb's not running anyway.
I thought we were done with polls until at least January 20. Guess I was wrong.
And what the heck is this? Jeb has said he's not running in 2008. This is an even more meaningless poll.
An 8% loss to Kerry. LoL!
Swiftvets won't let Kerry win. He's toast. And on-the-records made by Hillary are going to get in her way in 2008.
How would that be nepotism? If he won the primaries it would be because he got more delegates not because his last name is Bush. I think it is all esoteric because he will not run.
There is an assumption that these folks will not have passed on!
And in 4 years that pukey horse face will get even uglier if you can imagine that...
He'd be running against the Swift Boat Veterans and POWs for Truth.
What does the general public know about ANY of those Republican "candidates"? John Kerry had a huge national campaign, and while no one knows what his policies are about, they at least know who he is.
Pollster: "Kerry or Frist?"
Pollee: (Thinking: I know who Kerry is, but what is a Frist?) "Kerry"
Well, here's to Kerry giving it another go.
