    I love how no matter what is polled, there is always about 25% of the population who just knee-jerk reflexively blame everything wrong with the world on their ideological opposition, and reflexively support whomever they perceive to be their ideological allies. The facts don't matter, only the knowledge that a certain answer proves one's opposition to everyone else on the planet.

    I think this enduring mystery of political science helps explains Romney's consistent 20-30% level of support, no matter what he does or says.

    These poll results aren't about Bush or Romney, they're about the respondents.
