I think we may be missing the point here a bit.

Regardless of how anyone feels about polls(take a college course in statistics and you may get a better idea of how the polls work; they can be effective, that is why they are used), out of the 1000+ people polled over one quarter of the kerry supporters were voting kerry because they disliked bush or wanted bush out of office. They were not voting for kerry because they liked his policy; they voted for him because he wasn't bush. Kind of sad.

I do find it very funny that any poll posted here that shows bush being ahead gets applause and "bush 2004"/"Bush in a landslide" quotes.

Somehow anytime that a poll comes along that shows bush in any less than a winning position the responses are "polls are trash"/"polls don't mean anything"...

Even though this poll doesn't even show bush being behind, the fact that it points out that he is disliked is enough to get the latter response...

Very interesting.



Too many people on both sides of the spectrum have fallen into this mentality that a full one half of the country are the enemy for having different beliefs...in a country based on freedom of expression. It is this infighting that allows the focus to be taken away from "we the people" being able to watch, and have control over government corruption and ineptitude that is running rampant in our leadership.

People should be working towards fixing problems, not creating them.

Her comment never said we were perfect or that our system was flawless she merely pointed out the difference in protecting between the two countries and I agree with are much more prepared! Perhaps I missed it but I never read where we were totally ready to stop ANY terrorist attack only that we were more ready to stop said attack than other country

That is an intersting response. I don't quite understand the animosity towards statistics, but you are entitled to your opinion.

Perhaps someone would like to start a thread titled: Terrorism: what countries are ready for an attack? as that seems to be the direction that this thread is going and I would prefer to keep it a bit closer to being on topic than that.

Animosity isnt the word I would use however since you brought it up I feel that polls are unrealiable therefore trash. Its not whose Poll it is or who it favors I find them all to be worthless

A vote for George Bush is a vote for family values, morals, security, and a future. A vote for John Kerry is just a vote wasted, just what does he stand for anyway. He went and served in Vietnam, for that he has my respect. Then he comes home and starts protesting the war, for that he lost my respect. I am not denying that war is the only hell on earth, but when you make comments that get our POW's hurt and killed while they are in those God awful POW camps. Just where is this mans brain. Does he really believe that the U.N. would have been able to get Sadam out of power. Please he thumbed his nose at the U.N. sanctions for, what 12 years.
