"Unnamed Democrat" leads Bush in Polls

In new poll, 'unnamed Democrat' is ahead of Bush



THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


WASHINGTON — The “as-yet-unnamed” Democratic presidential nominee has a slight edge over President Bush, according to the latest national Quinnipiac poll.
Almost half of those surveyed — 48 percent — said they would support the Democratic candidate, while 44 percent said they would vote for Bush. The poll of 1,232 registered voters, conducted Feb. 26-March 3, had a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

Among those identified as independents, 46 percent favored the Democratic Party nominee while 39 percent chose the Republican president.

Bush fared better when matched head-to-head against Democratic candidates in a national poll last month, running almost 10 points ahead of some of the better known candidates such as Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman, Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry and Missouri Rep. Dick Gephardt, as well as New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, who has said repeatedly that she is not running in 2004.

Among the Democrats questioned in the Quinnipiac poll, Clinton received the strongest support — 37 percent. That was more than the next three candidates — Gephardt, Lieberman and Kerry — combined.

Without Clinton in the race, Lieberman was at 21 percent, followed by Gephardt at 17 percent, Kerry at 12 percent and all others in single digits.

Overall, Bush’s job approval was at 53 percent, with 39 percent disapproving. Only 9 percent said they were “very satisfied” with the country’s direction, while 26 percent were “very dissatisfied.”

That shows that people are ready for a strong Democratic candidate, but don't like the current options presented to them. In other words, I think they want a candidate who isn't entrenched in "politics as usual."

They don't mean unnamed as in they are hiding the identity of the person, they just mean that people would pick the as-yet undetermined democratic candidate over Bush.

But really, they only polled a little over 1200 people which to me doesn't say much when the population of the US is around 280 million (I believe).

If that is the case then the Democrates should find a candidate with the name "Unnamed Candidate"


That is exactly how the Republicans chose their last candidate.

the second s/he does have a name it will probably have a negative effect for him/her in the polls

that poll number's bound to go down once the people who voted in this poll realize that there aren't any strong democratic candidates.

In some ways, although I am a Bush supporter, it's good to see this. A presidential election should be contested closely. Blind support for either side/candidate is dangerous.

i'm a registered republican and i voted for bush, because i felt he was the far better candidate. that being said, even this hardcore republican would have voted for bill bradley if he had been the democratic nominee.

great news indeed.

what people havent mentioned yet is just how far bush has slipped since 9/11's increase.

does anyone know how large of a margin this is?

and how can bush feel when he knows not only is most of the world pissed off at him, but his own people arent exactly unified behind his back either?

oh wait, the dude's an android.

Well, since Election Day is not for awhile, I don't want to start my involvement in any campaign or whatever now. I hate these two year campaigns. If I start this crud now I'll be so sick of politics come Election Day I'll scream. It's overkill.

yeah his approval ratings have slipped since his post 9/11 highs... but despite all these angry pissed off protesters who supposedly make up the american majority, bush's approval ratings still hold steady in the 53-56% range... jumping up towards 60 every time he gives a major speach, and jumping back down towards the 53 whenever the french say no again.

I don't think the polls right now are that important as per Election Day 2004 results are concerned. Things could change. George Bush Sr. had a 90% approval rating after Desert Storm, and then lost the election less than two years later. It's too early to tell what the heck will happen this time.

We can only hope...

I think this election may be one of the most important voting opportunities I've had in my voting life. Of course I live in Texas where unless you vote Republican, you have no voice. But I'll wisper as loud as I can.
