Bush's Popularity Explained

According to a new PIPA survey, Bush's real popularity lies in the fact that Bush supporters don't know what he stands for. Supporters of Bush and Kerry were quizzed about their candidates' positions on 8 issues, and a majority of Bush supporters were wrong about his stand on 6 of them. Sizable majorities of Kerry supporters were right about his stand on 7 of the 8 issues.

It seems like the public hasn't really gotten to know this George W. Bush character as well as they might. That works to his advantage. Supporters who incorrectly guessed Bush's positions often simply assumed that he agreed with them.

The issue that the largest number of Bush supporters mistook his stance on was the inclusion of labor and environmental standards in trade laws. Only 13% of his supporters correctly identified Bush as opposing them.
