Commentary
According to ROBBINS, barring any extraordinary set of circumstance, Republican nominee George W. Bush, should, as we have suggested for many months now, win the Presidential election in November 2004.
Americans in the swing States of Illinois, Pennsylvania, and Ohio have recently had a good look at the Republican Party during its convention in New York City. This took place on the heals of the ‘527’ election fundraising controversy, and in particular the Swift Boat advertising at a cost of a paltry one million dollars, which ROBBINS believes has inflicted a mortal political wound upon the political body of Senator John Kerry, insofar as this survey is concerned.
Despite desperate attempts by Senator Kerry to make the advertising ‘go away’ by demanding that George W. Bush help take responsibility for the ads, the political damage was already done, with many respondents being of the opinion that Senator Kerry had “done the damage to himself”.
Through the entire debate surrounding the Swift Boat advertising Senator Kerry appeared to respondents to be more a whiner and complainer, than someone wanting to be President.
President George W. Bush appeared loyal to Vice-President Dick Cheney when calls went out for VP Cheney to step down, and to be replaced by a more popular political figure like Senator John McCain, whose approval ratings in The United States are extremely high.
Respondents in this survey may have their doubts about President George W. Bush, but even those that gave the ‘mojo’ to John Kerry, had a difficult time making that choice, over President George W. Bush.
Americans in this survey believe that when times are tough, and the going gets rough, loyalty to the flag, and to your family and friends, will win the day. President George W. Bush fits into this view of what a leader should be. Like him or not few Americans doubt his loyalty.
