Bush Approval Poll From Democraticunderground.com


This poll was taken on 10-11-01 from www.democraticunderground.com by 32 democrats. It is a quick poll taken with no notice and 100% at random by 32 different Democrats. The results show a 51/49 split on supporting bush and the war on terrorism. Not one person supports the Bush domestic policies.

It was taken to show that depending on who you ask and how you ask it any poll can show any result depending on a lot of factors. In my opinion any poll results that are quoted that do not give the democrat to republican ratio is a bogus poll. If I polled 32 republicans I am sure the results would be the exact opposite. I will say that Zogby does the most accurate polls because he usually polls 50% democrats and 50% republicans, or close to 50/50. Sometimes it's 52/48 or 51/49 but usually close to an even ratio of dems to repubs.

4) Would you support the President in a poll after a terrorist attack that killed 5 to 6 thousand people in one day, even if the President was Hitler ?

Note: Question #4 was my warped sarcastic sense of humor and not meant to be taken too serious, my point was that if a monkey was president he could get a 90% approval rating after a terrorist attack that killed 5000+ people. Hitler was clearly a bad choice to use as an example to prove my point. Plus poppy Bush and cheney are making all the decisions anyway.
