THE CRUX OF MIERS POLLING - and a new poll

Recently, there have been several polls published on the Miers nomination. (See here and here. And here for another angle.) I ran a poll, too - and the results are telling: 25% think she'll fail or withdraw; 25% think she'll do as well or better than Roberts in the Senate; and 50% think she'll squeek in. That's 75% who think she will FAIL or just squeek in - HARDLY A RINGING ENDORSEMENT OR VOTE OF CONFIDENCE! Since MOST of my readers are right-of-center/GOP-types one MUST CONCLUDE that the poll confirms that the MIERS nomination was a dissapointment to many many MANY more "GOP-righties" than should have been expected; IOW: it was a poor pick; or at best, it was a mediocre pick which was handled badly. I think ANOTHER poll would be very VERY revealing: how pleased or dissappointed are you with the pick?



HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THE MIERS NOMINATION?

I AM DISAPPOINTED, BUT I SUPPORT IT
I AM HAPPY WITH THE NOMINATION
DISAPPONTED, AND WANT IT TO FAIL

Now come on! By your arguement 75% of respondants support the Miers nomination! I think this goes to show that most people do not know a darn thing about her bad good or otherwise. About all I know is she used to be a liberal and now she is supposed to be a conservative. What does that have to do with the price of tea in china? I used to be an anti-Catholic, now I am a Catholic. People can change and there must have been some reason President Bush appointed her (can't wait for the conformantion hearings maybe there is a deeper plan here?).

you entirely misread and misunderstood my post and mt previous poll results.

the previous poll i ran showed that 75% thought shge would not do as well as roberts. and roberts did not do as well as previous nominees. 78 votes - his total - represents a 'new benchmark."

75% felt she would not reach that benchmark.

sure: that could change with a stellar committee performance by miers. but it isn't likely.

so. one MUST conclude that 75% feel she is not as good a nominee as roberts.

i offer a NEW POLL TODAy in order to explore whether a majority woild support her now (based on what we know NOW) in spite of feeling she won;t do as well as roberts.

it could be that 75% support her, but feel she won;t do as well as roberts.

and it could be that most who support her do so grudgingly.

GET IT?!?!?!?
