    I have no doubt that if a Bush supporter was asked who was better for the economy they would have said Bush and if a Kerry supporter was asked about moral issues they'd say Kerry was better. But jlou's question was what reason did people vote for Bush, and if a study showed people were answering "moral issues" more often than not then there you go. In my mind its simply the most obvious and easiest excuse to vote for Bush for those who only barely follow politics.

    Your ideas are stupid.

    But they're yours, so you've got that, I guess.

    PS And this is coming from someone who thinks Bush is probably the worst president in about 80 years.

    Based off of Rune Hunter's other posts I believe Govtcheez is justified.

    Govtcheez for Tyrant!

    >>which is a hard one for me to understand since kerry had more votes against him

    Yep. My bad. Was a quick response to Cheney's statements on the issue. Was going to change it but there was already a post on it.

    >>I think novacain's trying to say that while the votes in Bush's column were more likely for him, the votes in Kerry's were more likely against Bush, not for Kerry.

    thanks.

    >>They're implying that Bush is an evangelical Christian

    and Carl(?) Rove managed to increase the voting percentage to nearly 22% of those who attend church once a week (from under 15% in 2000)

    IMHO 'moral issues' is code for 'religious beliefs'.

    Haha! He was at my campus on Friday night. He reasoned that we should re-elect Reagan... then we'd up the ante on the terrorists because they couldn't exactly assassinate our president.

    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    I guess the only thing worse is not caring. At least he's got a head start.

    When I was 14, I mostly just ate a lot.

    In my mind its simply the most obvious and easiest excuse to vote for Bush for those who only barely follow politics.
    I liked what Clinton said on the Daily show (because, you know, you're obviously an informed person if you watch the Daily show) : "When people think, the Democrats win"
    See you in 13
