RE: Bush Poll Numbers

Dennis,

The problem for the party with the Presidents approval ratings, is that as we seen during the 2000 election, you don’t want to give the hard right (those 5 million evangelical Christians) an excuse to stay home. The reason Bush almost lost to Gore was because those conservatives felt disappointed in government after Clinton and decided not to vote putting a Bush Presidency in jeopardy. The 2004 landslide victory is because we were able to motivate those individuals to vote, mainly based on the fact that the next President would shape the next Supreme Court.

Going forward the Supreme Court is no longer an issue and based on the current issues facing the President and party it could be just the thing to make them stay home again.
