Poll: Bush would lose an election if held this year

At CNN.com:

In the latest poll, 55 percent of the respondents said that they would vote for the Democratic candidate if Bush were again running for the presidency this year.

Thirty-nine percent of those interviewed said they would vote for Bush in the hypothetical election.
Democrats preferred on issues

On separate issues, a majority of those questioned felt the Democrats could do a better job than Republicans at handling health care (59 percent to 30 percent), Social Security (56 percent to 33 percent), gasoline prices (51 percent to 31 percent) and the economy (50 percent to 38 percent).

Forty-six percent also believed Democrats could do better at handling Iraq, while 40 percent said the GOP would do better.
Wait, wait wait.... the Democrats won on issues, too?? Those are pretty big numbers. WTF?

Just goes to show you what a huge section of the country really does sit on the fence, blowing as the spin blows. We'll see who wins the spin wars come next year's mid-term elections.
