Josh Marshall reports that the WSJ got snippy with him for being so pessimistic about Bush’s polling numbers. Really, the Journal says, there’s nothing to worry about at all in the polling. As they read the trends, it is still ‘likely’ that Bush’s support level will stay above 25% between now and next November. In a spirit of bipartisan agreement, I would like to add that I too think it is likely that Bush will win more than 25% of the votes cast next Presidential election. If 25% is the over/under line, I’m betting the over. Unless the odds on under are good enough.

My bet is that Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld will magically find a way to bring a bunch of troops home from Iraq just before the election or, failing that, announce they’ve just arrested Osama bin Laden.

You *know* these circus marketers will come up with something.

Reading the link: The WSJ seems to have some problems with the semantics of “hit bottom.” It means “reach its lowest point.”

(I’m being slightly unfair to the WSJ here, and I am going to lose precisely no sleep over that.)
