Poll shows Americans don’t know Kerry

by on June 4th, 2004

Although it shouldn’t surprise anyone, the latest poll about Democratic Presidential candidate John Kerry shows that more and more Americans don’t know what to think about that ol’ Massachusetts liberal.

The National Annenberg Election Survey found that potential swing voters in the battleground states have not yet decided how they feel about Kerry. A fourth see him favorably and a fourth see him unfavorably, while almost four in 10, 38 percent, remain neutral about him.


“Opinions have not been firmly formed about Kerry yet,” said Kathleen Hall Jamieson, director of the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania. “There is a large open question on whether Kerry can pass the presidential threshold.”

I don’t blame them.

Could it be because of his flip-flopping? Medalgate? Or maybe because he likes to shore up each and every possible political angle by supporting and opposing the same measures?

Case in point:

“We went into Iraq with too few troops to prevent looting and crime, and we failed to secure nearly a million tons of conventional weapons now being used against our troops,” Kerry said Thursday.

Would that before or after he opposed the Iraq war? Or supported it? Or voted against Iraq war spending. Wait, didn’t he vote for that?

I’m confused. As well are the American people. No wonder they don’t know who Kerry is. Indeed, Kerry seems just as confused as the rest of us.
