  Mar 06, 2004

A computerized telephone survey of 750 respondents throughout the United States of America between February 26-March 6, 2004.

Commentary
This survey suggests to me that as the political situation in the U.S. stands right now, President George W. Bush will win another term. John Kerry has unequivocal credentials, but Vietnam was than, and the Middle East is now.
Senator Kerry requires a Southern Democrat for a running mate. Although that isn't news necessarily, I believe the correct choice is Wesley Clark. Wesley Clark can speak to an era of modern warfare in a changing world, understands the nuances of 'terrorist' warfare from his time in Bosnia and the former Yugoslavia, and as a consequence understands what is happening in the rapidly evolving European Community.
Some Democratic supporters appear to be sliding into a place of denial about world affairs particularly, many of whom because they simply don't like war, are also afraid of terrorism, and are equally challenged by the fact that President Bush has been successful combating terrorism.
