    Way to slant the data, Gallup. The poll says that 49% of Republicans are More enthusiatic, compared to 44% who are less, compared to Democrats, where the numbers are 44- 47%.

    Again, most people aren't spending a lot of time thinking about this right now.

    No, the poll is comparing the attitudes now and the attitudes in the last few monts and in 2010. They aren't referring to the difference in values within the poll itself.

    Again, just meaning people aren't spending a lot of time thinking about it right now.

    I think most people are just waiting to see how the nomination fight turns out.

    I disagree. Republicans are well aware of their feelings for Obama. I think it is because they are disenchanted with the GOP field.

    The canidates suck.


    The canidates:
    Romney who is a progressive republican
    Newt who is a bombastic conservative
    Perry who is just not a president/presidential
    Bachmann who is ms crazy eyes and doesn't seem presidential
    Santorum who is probably their best bet but just comes across as a whiney snot
    Huntsman who is a liberal in republican cloathing
    Paul who is cool and conservative but would never win in the general election.
