 This is how 59 million people can be so dumb

Can someone please explain to me how Bush won? Anyone? Buhler? According to the latest NY Times poll, this is how 59,054,087 people can be so dumb:
Country's direction
  Right Track 40%
  Wrong Track 54%

Bush's handling of foreign policy
  Approve 44%
  Disapprove 48%

Bush's handling of the economy
  Approve 42%
  Disapprove 51%

Bush's handling of Iraq
  Approve 40%
  Disapprove 55%

Is the economy getting better, worse, or staying the same?
  Better 26%
  Worse 29%
  Same 44%

Do you have confidence in George W. Bush’s ability to deal wisely with a difficult international crisis or are you uneasy about his approach?
  Confident 47%
  Uneasy 51%

Do you have confidence in George W. Bush's ability to make the right decisions about the nation's economy, or are you uneasy about his approach?
  Confident 46%
  Uneasy 52%

Do you think George W. Bush is likely or not likely to make sure Social Security benefits are there for people like you?
  Likely 38%
  Not Likely 51%

Do you think large corporations have too much influence, too little influence, or the right amount of influence in the Bush Administration?
  Too Much 66%
  Too Little 4%
  Right Amount 19%

Should Bush's tax cuts expire?
  Yes 45%
  No 41%

What should be the higher priority?
  Cutting Taxes 28%
  Reducing the Deficit 67%

Do you favor a flat tax?
  Yes 26%
  No 34%
  Don't Know 37%

Who would benefit the most from a flat tax?
  The Rich 54%
  The Poor 6%
  The Middle Class 26%

Party Favorability:Republican
  Favorable 49%
  Unfavorable 46%

Party Favorability: Democratic
  Favorable 54%
  Unfavorable 39%

Should we have invaded Iraq?
  Yes 46%
  No 48%

Is the War on Iraq part of the War on Terror?
  Major Part 34%
  Minor Part 9%
  Not Part 51%

The only way I can make sense of this is that we could very well be the stupidest people on Earth.

  • Support the troops! Kill them in a functionless and failing war!
  • Don't kill unborn babies! Let born Iraqi babies die of malnutrition at a much higher percentage than even before the invasion! (AIDS babies don't count. That's the homos' fault.)
  • Hate our foreign policy! Love the way the Bush Cartel is destroying our foreign policy to make us safer!
  • Spread and create democracy abroad! Thwart and subjugate democracy at home!

These numbers, and this conclusion, is meaningless without similar numbers for John Kerry.

Maybe the idiots are at the NY Times. CNN has completely different poll results.

Silence DogoodI hope you remember that poll the next time you call CNN the "communist news network" for failing to completely toe the Republican Party line :)

Without access to the CNN data behind the reported results, its difficult to get any analytical traction on why the polls diverge. Probably an oversampling of conservatives for CNN. Wait until the next polls come out to see if there is any consistency.

I call CNN the "communist news network" for toeing the liberal line.
