"How am I losing to this guy?"
Q: What does “Dukakis” mean in Greek?
If Dukakis gets elected, then his home state will be renamed to Machusetts. The “ass” will be in Washington.
I wonder how history would’ve turned out if Dukakis had won in 1988 instead. He probably would’ve been a disaster and we might have gotten a better GOP candidate than Bush in 1992 who might’ve won and later gotten re-elected. We also may never have had Clinton or Obama.
Heck, that’s nothing. Tomorrow’s Gallup Poll has Barky leading Romney by 92 points.
Wasn’t the RNC convention ‘after’ the DNC one back in 1988? And, Bush bounced back quite well after his convention? If so, then this isn’t necessarily a good analogy to point to.
Hope Romney does not follow the example of McCain and his nice/soft campaign.
Attack, attack and attack... that is ithe only thing that works in politics.
If Romney is having the same McLoser advisors around him, he needs to wisen up and fire those idiots, a private sector guy like Romney should recognise such Mclame losers straight away.
Yeah, but Dukakis is down by 4 now.
Look at gallup’s history going back to 1948. Elections with no incumbent are very volatile. Only 1952 saw the eventual winner maintain a solid and consistent lead. In 1960, JFK and Nixon traded the lead weekly. In 1968, Nixon lead the entire election by as much as 15 points only to nearly lose it. In 2000, both Gore and Bush had 10 point leads at one point. I recall at one point Gore and Bush were even tied 44-44 in Illinois.
Using elections with no incumbent to try and predict this ekection won’t work.
