Meanwhile, one year after the 2000 presidential election was settled, most Democrats continue to think George W. Bush did not win fair and square. Overall, 48% of Democrats say Bush won on a technicality, 25% say he stole the election and 24% say he won fair and square.


No, Most Democrats (48%) say Bush won on a technicality.

Hey, I have an idea. Let's pretend they run a poll that asks the following question and get the posted results

Is George Bush a smart man?

a) He's not very smart (10% result)
b) He's not the smartest man ever, but he's not dumb. (30%)
c) He's a pretty bright guy (40%)
d) He's an absolute GENIUS. (20%)

A poll like this could be overwhelmingly positive, but they could still run "Most Americans agree, Bush is not a Genius."

Sigh. I hate how people twist things.

But 48% isn't most. What it says to me is that 72% say he did, indeed win the election by the rules, technicality or not.

Maybe most Democrats who thought Bush won the election say he won on a technicality.

I've read the Star Ledger. And, not to steal DJ FrostyFreeze's gimmick, but...

STAR-LEDGER = TRASH

I would be more in agreement with you if I weren't just looking at some Nast cartoons last night, and noticed that he seemed to have no aversion to depicting people he disagreed with as (insert Church Lady voice)....SATAN~!
