How are there more Bush supporters then in 2000?

Or are there?

This is one thing that I can’t understand. The 2000 election was razor thin with Gore wining the popluar vote and debatably even the electoral. Bush approached his campaign with the notion of bringing integrity back to the white house after the Clinton years, fiscal responsibility, compassionate conservativism and no nation building.

Now after 4 years of ultra-conservativism, lost jobs, lower income, messy iraq aftermath, and going from a huge surplus to huge deficit… how can it still be a close race this election year?

Because honestly I can see many people who voted for Bush in 2000 changing their opinion easily for this year, but I simply can not see the Gore supporters vote for Bush this year, yet the polls show yet again another razor thin election year.

Anyone know :?:

I think just being the incumbent probably gives you a certain number of votes. Unless your actions have been transparently disastrous, and obviously plenty of people don’t think Bush’s have been.


Yee-Haw! My Vote Cancels Out Y’all’s!

More people, period. Kind of like how Gore got more votes than any Democrat in history, as a function of population growth.

he got more votes than any presidential candidate in history.

I think Reagan '84 got more.

As meaningless as it is, says Reagan '84.

grrrr…my bad. could have sworn i read he had the most.

Most of any Democrat, yes.
