Some Thoughts on Bush-Kerry

I have not seen any of the Bush-Kerry debates, but I have been following the discussions and polls regarding the results. If you believe many respected commentators in the blogosphere, you can pencil in a win for George Bush. But the mainstream media polls are saying something else entirely.

 

  • Kerry performed better than Bush in the debate

  • Kerry is better on the economy, health care, and education

  • Bush is better on taxes

  • Compared with Bush, more respondents thought that Kerry agreed with them more on the issues they care about, expressed himself more clearly, had a better understanding of the issues, was more believable, showed he cares about the needs of the people, and showed he shares their values. Bush, on the other hand, was considered more likeable.
  •  

    I have a bad feeling about this election. While I personally would be hoping for a Bush win (due to his superior world view, and the fact that I trust him far more than Kerry), I think that Kerry might actually win this one.

     

    Update: US citizens in Israel have not yet received their ballots to vote in the presidential elections. Whether or not their inability to vote will work for or against Bush is not clear. (In the last presidential election, Bush got 35 percent of the vote from Americans in Israel. I would expect an improvement this time around).
