Some reasons to be Thankful in the new SUSA poll.

Bush approval in states with competetive Senate races next year

Mormons below the fold! ...

(Should have voted for Pedro!)
             

In October, we saw Bush with positive numbers in just 6 states. Lets look at where they are this month!


    1)Idaho    59% 39% 20%
    2)Alaska   47% 50% -3% Ok...
    3)Nebraska 48% 48% 0% sweet...
    4)Oklahoma 49% 49% 0% Heartland...comin around!
    5)Wyoming  53% 45% 8%
    AND...
    6)Utah     59% 38% 21%   WHAT THE FUCK?! PLUS 21?!?!?

Is George Bush practicing polygamy and only telling mormons?! Now I understand SLC punk!

This month, Bush is positive in just 4 states, having gone negative in Alaska for the first time ever, dead even in Nebraska and Oaklahoma, and plus two in Mississippi all the way up to, well... +2!!!

This is, for me, personally, my favorite part.
BEHOLD THE RED SOUTH!!!


    1)Alabama     46% 49% -3%
    2)Arkansas    40% 57% -17%
    3)Georgia     45% 51% -6%
    4)Louisiana   45% 51% -6%
    5)Mississippi 50% 48% 2%
    6)N Carolina  42% 57% -15%
    7)S Carolina  41% 57% -16%
    8)Tennessee   42% 55% -13%
    9)Virginia    39% 59% -20%
    10)W Virginia  42% 55% -13%
    and...even though its not the South...
    11)Florida     37% 61% -24%
    12)Missouri    38% 60% -22%

Notice that all of those states went for Bush by comforatble margins in 2004.

But, ultimately, I think the moral of the story is what is going on in Utah?!?!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
