75% sounds logical - it's in keeping with his extremely low approval rating..

And, he always gets a high approval rating from his fanatical base...

As much as W let me down (having voted for him twice), I'd take him over Obama in a heartbeat.
I would agree. I would vote for him again in a heartbeat.

I'd be glad to see Bush go and no one take his place.

I just don't see the Obama appeal, at least based on his campaign. My wish is that Government has its hand in as few aspects of our life as possible. Obama seems to want the opposite.
we have had 8 years of Bush and still 3 weeks to be Obama's Inauguration and yet you can compare both and even say that you'd take the worst President ever in a heartbeat.

There's no way to confirm (factually) that anyone is the worst (or best) President ever. There's no agreed upon standard to rate Presidents. It's very hard to compare them on a level playing field, since each President has a unique set of circumstances under which they govern.

I didn't say I thought W was great; I just said that I would prefer him over Obama.

A new national poll says that three out of four Americans feel his departure is coming not a moment too soon.

What I want to know is.... 75%, is that all? I was guessing it would be more like 95%. Heck, maybe 99%.
If they were polling the rest of the world - I agree, it would probably be 95% or higher can't wait for him to leave...

Can't wait for him to go. It should be much higher.
