Kerry’s Tailspin Continues
I’m loving every minute of it!
A growing majority of voters are unhappy with the way things are going in Iraq, but that is not helping Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry, who trails or is statistically tied with President Bush in most surveys.
“President Bush and his team are going down in their approval ratings, but Senator Kerry is going nowhere,” said Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. A recent Quinnipiac survey showed Mr. Bush leading his challenger by 43 percent to 40 percent, with 6 percent going to Ralph Nader. “Bush has lost three points in the three-way matchup, but those three points did not go to Kerry.”
So let’s break this down into pure political terms. Gas prices are at $2/gallon, our military is being disgraced with the prison scandal, our troops are dying in Iraq, terrorism is on the rise, and the person America feels most comfortable to resolve the situation is. . . George W. Bush.
That should tell you something about what America thinks not only of John Kerry, but of President Bush as well. As the coming months approach, our military will recover, Iraq will calm, gas prices will drop, the economy will continue to outpace expectations, jobs will be created, terrorists will drop like flies, the Republican convention will be held on the anniversary of 9/11, yada yada yada.
Kerry is toast. The VP nod, buttah.
