So, regardless of grades, Bush has been a terrible president. Honestly...I'm generally very open-minded about things like this....and I seriously can't find anything that he has done right in the last five years. Everything has gotten worse.
Well, there was a little election in November of 2004, and most people saw things differently.

The US military and coalition forces have removed the worst dicator and intolerable threat to global security from power. It is impossible to fully measure how much better off the whole world is without Saddam in power. The US and coalition forces are now engaged in a struggle to build a strong and prosperous Iraq while protecting it from foreign terrorist and Saddam loyalist.

As for the economy, it started to slump on Clinton's watch and then fell into recession as Bush came into office. But today, unemployment in the United States is only 5.1%. That is one of the lowest unemployment rates in the history of the United States and lower than the average unemployment rate during the Clinton years.

i almost admire how persistantly you make untrue claims.

"most" people does not 51% equal. that would be "a slim majority."

3 million voters=slim?

Would Rossane Barr's figure be svelte in your estimation?

And now it's June 2005 and people have a hangover. He's posting his worst approval numbers of his term:

52% overall disapproval and a 60% disapproval of the war in Iraq. 62% disapproval of his Social Security reform proposals.

I guess public opinion is either fickle at least and retarded at most.

I'm surprised at this stat.


Why only 60% disapproval? What's with the other 40%?

A monthly poll of a thousand people is nothing compared to an election with a 100 million people involved. May was a rough month in Iraq thanks to the terrorist, so naturally Bush's numbers took a hit. Watch the poll numbers again if this month or the next turns into a rough month for certain terrorist leaders. If there is real disatisfaction with Bush, the last chance to really see it is the 2006 congressional elections. But like the previous elections, I'm sure they will show that most of the public feels differently about the President than the Mainstream Press or their polls.

Of course. Electronic voting machines with no paper trails are easy to manipulate, that's why.

Most means "greatest in amount or quantity". The candidate that received the largest number of votes in the 2004 election was George Bush.

no, most refers to a large amount of an undefined quantity of items.

we know how many people voted in the election, 100m. we know that 3m of these people, or roughly 3%, was the difference between the winner and the loser. it gets even more miniscure when you compare it to the number of peopl in the country -- 300m. that's about 1%.

whatever it is, it isn't most.

your second sentence is correct. by using most, you're trying to create the impression that , with the exception of a stubborn few, the vast majority of the country are in agreement with Bush's agenda.

that simply isn't the reality.
