    Polls mean nothing until at least Labor Day. It is WAY too early to start trying to draw meanings off of polls - regardless of who is leading.

    I know, but they are still fun to pick apart. Especially when they favor Bush!

    Right. I suggested to the table at dinner tonight that it is kind of strange that Bush has gone up in the polls recently as things have gotten worse in Iraq. Any ideas? I mean, you would think it would be the other way around.

    No one really had an answer to that one.

    People see that he has a plan for Iraq and the War on Terror. It is only natural for people to rally around the President during a crisis.

    Polls eman nothing. Absolutely nothing. I'd say that if KErry was up by 10 and im saying when Bush is up by 10. Polls mean shit in April.

    Nader won't beat 5%. I'd predict closer to 1%.

    I heard a political commentator (no one whose name I remember) addressing this question the other day. His explanation was that Bush is strongly considered by the american public to be better at dealing with terrorism and protecting the U.S. (his words, not mine), so that when the Iraq situation is brought to the forefront (by pretty much any news) this helps Bush. Of course that might change if things continue to go badly for the next several months.

    Thanks, Reilly.
    Now I get it.
    I was forgetting that bad news can = good publicity.
    But yeah, like you said, only so much bad news or people will cease to think he is doing a good job.
