FOX News/Opinion Dynamics Poll. Latest: Dec. 12-13, 2001.
N=900 registered voters nationwide. MoE ± 3.
"Thinking ahead to the 2004 presidential elections, for whom do you think you would vote if the candidates were: [rotate] Republican George W. Bush or Democrat Al Gore?"
12/01 Bush 61% Gore 23% Someone Else 4% Not Sure 11% Won't Vote 1%
Bloomberg News Poll conducted by Princeton Survey Research Associates. Latest: Dec. 4-9, 2001. N=1,200 adults nationwide. MoE ± 3.
"Thinking ahead, suppose the 2004 presidential election were being held today. If you had to choose between George W. Bush, the Republican, or Al Gore, the Democrat, who would you vote for?"
12/01 Bush 60% Gore 29% Other 3% Won't Vote 1% Not Sure 8%
I just heard on our local conservative radio station that Jeb Bush is now doing even better than GW re totals in a poll of Jeb versus Jake Reno! The analyst said that the not sure group is due to a bad question. The final question should be would you vote for another person/party!
I find it interesting that the hard core demonicRat cult voters are coming in with a consistent 24 to just under 30% of the total. I think that is a significant drop from polls in 2000!

The only reason why the Dems do well in spite of their lack of virtually any honest or sane constituents is the unwearied support of a lying media. Plus vote-packing in the inner cities that now probably adds up to millions. Without the media and the vote-packing, the party would simply collapse.
I'm pretty sure no one's posting to this thread anymore, but I've gotta say it:
Considering the massive amount of vote fraud committed in the 2000 election, how do we know President Bush didn't win the popular vote?
FOX is grammatically correct and Bloomberg is not.
There are some major differences between GWB in 2001 and Bush Sr. in 1991.
Bush Sr. did not maintain those ratings for very long. I believe they only lasted several weeks during the Jan 16 to Feb 28 time frame. That was the time of Desert Storm in Iraq. GWB has maintained these 85-90% ratings for three months now with no signs yet of tailing off.
Bush Sr. disappointed a lot of Republicans, especially when he reneged on his "no new taxes" pledge. In my opinion, breaking that pledge alone cost Bush the 1992 election as many conservative voters flocked to Ross Perot. In contrast, GWB has pleasantly surprised the conservative base, thanks in large part to the liberal media setting expectations so low. It also appears that GWB is not going to waiver on any of his campaign pledges.
Bush Sr. was not a likeable president. He was perceived as a crank who was out of touch with most Americans, as the supermarket "bar scanner" debacle showed. He looked tired and bored most of the time and ran a listless campaign in 1992. As a result, many people were eager to get rid of him to the point that Ross Perot still got 20% of the popular vote despite his erratic and strange behavior during the campaign. GWB is almost the mirror image of his father. He is energetic, telegenic and projects enthusiasm and confidence. He is self-effacing not in a pathetic way (like his father) but in a charming way. Though GWB was early on thought a bumbler like his father, the expected blunders and bloopers have never materialized, leaving late-night comics starved for material.
Most importantly, the nation is in a deep crisis and people are going to bond to this president like they did with FDR during the Depression/WW2 and Kennedy during the Cuban Missile Crisis/Space Race. Both of those presidents also projected confidence and "can-do" American spirit during a time of crisis and turmoil and helped pull America together. This president is in good position to be remembered the same way. If it were not for term limits, we could well be looking at another four-term president here.
WHEN are we going to start putting people IN JAIL for tampering with elections?
If you see the trend, the important issue is not that Gore is losing badly in these new polls but that Bush has gained so much. He was painted badly with scare tactics by the Democrats and a lot of people bought it during the 2000 election. Now that there are real problems to deal with, Americans are looking to leadership, and they are getting it from their president. All the Democrats can do now is stall and try to obstruct Bush wherever they can.
People are satisfied and have VERY POSITIVE outlooks for the future.
Gallup Poll and CNN/USA Today/Gallup Poll
"In general, are you satisfied or dissatisfied with the way things are going in the United States at this time?"
12/6-9/01 Satisfied 70% Dissatisfied 28% No Opinion 2%
This was as low as 51% to 46% in December 2000. and historically this was last achieved temporarily in February of 1999. 70% is a VERY good number for Bush.
Bush's greatest tactical error of the 2000 campaign was allowing himself to be defined by the Democrats. Even many conservatives didn't know what he was all about and bought the spin that he was dumb and clueless.
I have never been asked for voter ID once in NYC other than signing the voter book.
