    But my point is that Bush would never win an election if it were held today, and that if the media was reporting these things back before 11/04, he would have had similar poll numbers.  I have no doubt that he would have lost.  I know so many Republicans and independents that have turned on him in the last few months, and I have no doubt that at least one or two percent would have back then (probably a lot more).    

    Perhaps I just have a little more faith in my fellow citizens than you do.

    •  Watergate break in was several months (none)
      before the election and Nixon still landslided McGovern.  I remember, at that time, wondering what in the world were people thinking?  It takes time for facts to soak into some peoples cranium.  That is why I believe King George's most recent bump in the polls is temporary.
