It depends whom you trust. Rats, Michael moore, CBS et al or real people who were never asked if they approve of Pres. Bush or not

That is a convinient way o flooking at thin Phoenix. If you don´t like whta you see, just dismiss it as being untrue or not trustworthy. On the bright side f things: it does makelife a walk in the park. And there is something to say for that too!

People don't vote according to how much they dislike one candidate over another. They, like me vote party, but most won't tell you that on a poll. If George Bush falls to -23%, I won't be persuaded to change parties because of his poll numbers. I just don't want "Stretch" Pelosi to be Speaker of the House and Hillary Clinton President. That's about as clear as I can make my point using socially acceptable language.

Ditto on that Missileer.

While if asked I would say that the I dont approve of the job the presidents doing. The thought of "Speaker of the House Pelosi really does scare me too much to not vote for Repigblicans.

I mean no offense, but I think thats simply utter bullocks. Politics isn't professional sports. Most people, like myself vote for the better Candidate regardless of Party. Sometimes thats a Republican and sometimes that's a Democrat. I am not voting against the GOP because I'm a Democrat (actually I am a Liberal Republican). Look at New York State, its a very Democratic State except the Govornor, the state legislature, and the New York City Mayor are all Republicans. I believe even your state of Texas has had its share of Democrats in office, not true (Ann Richards)?

I am voting against the GOP because in the last 6 years they have just about screwed everything up, and there are plenty of like minded Republicans. I couldn't never in good conscience vote Republican this year, as I am not in the habit of rewarding utter incompetance. The sad truth is, Even from a strict conservative standpoint, they are incompetant. The AP poll from 2 weeks ago showed that 1 in 3 Republicans want the GOP to lose in November.

Personally I rather give Nancy, Hillary and whoever a chance, because there always a possibility they might actually do a good job, whereas with this pathetic lot we have now, we all know what to expect from them, I sincerely doubt another 2 years will change much from the previous 6.

I think anybody who votes along solely party lines is being extremely narrow-minded.

Lastly, I was referring to polls, but I'm glad you spoke up, I didnt want to leave Pheonix all by himself.

That isn't true. Most people in the US do tend to vote their registered party. It is the minority that's willing to look at both sides and make a decision that way. You can look at voting trends over the years and various polls that have been done about this to see the evidence. Unfortunately, there are a lot of people that tow the party line, mostly because they're too lazy to get informed.

I am afraid Mmarsh, that most people do tend to stick to political parties. How often don´t you hear about generation after generation sticking to one party? It is saddening to see that people view politics via gut feelings and not content. Of course you knew this already but it painfull to see it confirmed time after time after time...

Cause going with a gut feeling is always a bad thing. Just because I dont like Bush and not a big fan of the republicans in general right now, doesnt mean I think the democrats are going to do any of a better job.

I'll vote for whoever is most likely to uphold my rights as an American citizen and not let the government spy on me and if they want arrest me for no reason and hold me indefinitely (i.e. forever).

I hate the PATRIOT act. Nothing patriotic about it, unless you're a Nazi.
