Skip to comments.Kerry Would Beat (Jeb) Bush In 2008
Posted on 12/20/2004 8:10:43 AM PST by Tumbleweed_Connection
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)
Get real. The key word is vote. We vote for our leaders and if the majority voted for Jeb it would not be a monarchy or a dictatorship. You see we would still have three branches of government.
Donald Duck(Disney) 100% - John Kerry(Commie) 0%
Mickey Mouse(Disney) 100% - Hillary Klinton(Commie) 0%
Some shmoe chosen at random 100% - Hillary Klinton(Commie) 0%
Why? Were the pollsters afraid of seeing Hillary or Kerry 20 points behind "high profile" Republicans?
why would we want a 3rd bush?
this country rebelled against england to rid itself of royalty .
as it is, 2 bushes and 2 clintons will amount to 28 years of my life.
As a resident of Florida, Jeb has been a great governor and, in all honesty, would have been a better President than Dubya IMO.
Asking how two very famous names will run against three people who are probably unknown to most of the respondents (except that Jeb Bush has a recognizable last name) makes little sense. Hillary Clinton has enormous name recognition. John Kerry has had enormous publicity from the MSM for the past year. Pataki is known only in New York. Most people never heard of Frist, who keeps a low profile. Jeb Bush is at most a face and a name.
In other words, this is completely meaningless.
What will count is what people learn when some candidate actually runs. For instance, Pataki is a do-nothing governor, has made New York into an economic disaster area even worse than Mario Cuomo left it, and favors partial-birth abortion. In other words, the more they learn about Pataki, the less they will like him.
Frist would do better, but doesn't have the guts or the fire to win.
Jeb Bush would be a magnificent candidate. But will people vote for a third man from the same family?
CAN I VOTE FOR NO POLLS TILL 2005 PLEASE?!!!
It's hard to find any poll that isn't leftist until the day before Election Day. Then they've got to protect their reputation.
The latest polls show the child of Jenna Bush beating the child of Chelsea Clinton by 63% to 37% if the 2052 Presidential election were held today.
You're right, only one of the Adams should have been elected President. They've established too powerful a monarchy.
Didn't the last fox poll before the election have Kerry leading Florida by 5 points? Let's see I think Bush won by 5 so Fox was off by 10 points in Kerry's favor. I think this latest poll is strictly a gimmick for ratings during the Christmas season.
Pataki won't even be a factor if he's tossed from the governor's mansion in NY by Spitzer. Jeb has already hinted he wouldn't run in 2008. Frist has a chance but only if he makes some extraordinary achievements as majority leader with 55 Republicans. Killing the filibuster on judges and getting the GOP majority up to 57-60 in 2006 *might* do it, but even that's a long shot. Assuming Giuliani is in the race and some top governors are in the race (e.g. Romney, Owens, Pataki), Frist will be an also-ran.
Don't forget the Harrisons. They certainly ruled with an iron fist.
Nepotism would have nothing to do with Jeb Bush winning the nomination or the presidency. He would be elected, not selected.
"CAN I VOTE FOR NO POLLS TILL 2005 PLEASE?!!!"
NO!!!! 2007, please. Let's get a break.
Kerry would not run again. He either wants to be secretary of state or take Kofi's job at the UN.
Hillary will never be President. She could wake up tomorrow, scream Halleloooyah, walk across water and call Ted kennedy a drunken murderer and she still won't get 40% of the vote.
The inability to distinguish between what is real and what is imaginary. Psychosis is a term used to describe a severe mental illness. Psychotics are characterized by a variety of symptoms that most people consider abnormal. These include experiencing delusions, such as the notion that one is being persecuted or conspired against. Psychotics may see things which don't actually exist and hear Voices (i.e. God) when no one is around. They often exhibit compulsive, irrational, ritualized behavior, esp. when such behavior serves no purpose or is even harmful or disruptive to those around them. They show no concern for others but may exhibit total self-centered behavior. Includes sociopathy, schizophrenia.
