Polls are annoying...
As are, apparently, most who respond to them. Check out Bush's "support numbers" now:
President Bush has maintained strong support among Republican voters even as bad news from Iraq has drowned out good economic news and driven down the president's overall standing in recent polls....The Gallup Poll reported last week that 89 percent of Republicans give Mr. Bush high job-performance marks — four points higher than President Reagan had five months before his re-election in 1984.
Why? Seriously, what reason is there for this beyond bleating out "war on terror!" or the typical partisan boilerplate?
Times like this I wish I could pull aside these ultra-loyal types and grill 'em until they either explain what they still see in Bush or their heads explode. I'm really not seeing it.
