Well, vs. generic Democrat is probably going to look worse than vs. specific Democrat.

Also, the economy is improving, but not quite there yet.

And, undoubtedly, W has lost some of the conservative base. He can probably get it back by ignoring Rove, and vetoing the AW ban or something along those lines.

All this shows (at least to me) is the Dems are not too thrilled with their choices for the Democratic nomination right now and I don't think anything will change. These are the lowest poll numbers for dems in years. I don't think Al Gore even got these low poll numbers. If you were a Dem would you pick from this group? I wouldn't, I would refuse to vote for these idiots!

Bush is not a conservative. More like a Olympia Snowe Republican. No vote for you from me this time. Democrap or Republican...not much difference. Not worth the $1.00 to drive to the polls.

Do you really think so? I mean "some" perhaps, but not a lot. I consider myself a pretty strong conservative. And while I have really disagreed with the President on some stuff, most vehemently CFR, I am still with him. Our present on-going national crisis, the War on Terror, really needs a strong national leader. No one on the current scene can fill that job like G.W. Bush. I also believe on the basic issues he's strong: he is a tax cutter, he's principally against uninhibited expansion of government spending--the deficit notwithstanding--and he's helping foster a respect for life.

Some conservatives seem to want all of their objectives fulfilled at once, and while that might be GREAT, it just isn't always do-able. Politics, they say, is the "art of the possible".

Just mho.
