Good News

The Dems really are in the toilet these days. A new New York Times/CBS poll shows that almost half of Americans have a negative opinion of the Democratic Party. Wow.

The reason? No message. And to think, the aristocratic liberal dons of the Left fancy themselves populists!

Furthermore, the article says that Al Gore, supposedly the leading candidate for the Democratic nomination in 2004, has unfavorables leading favorables by two to one. Almost two-thirds of voters think Gore should step aside (so much for heir apparent), and a majority of Democrats concur. No doubt they recognize in Gore’s leftward lurch a determined attempt on the part of the former veep to relegate himself to the dustbin of history.

Bush’s favorables are at 65%.
