Lots of these poll are based on the method of questioning, I would like to see a link to the news source. Undoubtedly, the "lessor of two evils" wouldn't be a person that has closed down the free press in his nation, stolen (oh, we mean "nationalized") private business assets, and that is an ally of president that advocates wiping out the state of Israel and denies the holocaust.
And to quote me Da..lesser of two evils means you still have evil

Apparently, his concern for the underclass, Oil to the poor programs, economic policies, and anti-Imperialism/Bush agenda is catching on in the U.S.

Any U.S. President that cannot win the appeal of his own citizens against a small time Third World dictator is really in bad shape.

Agree?
"American celebrities" <<<this should answer any questions you have !

Of Chavez and Bush, which one has done more for the working people of his nation? The Bush policies have the disasterous effects on America's working families as a coast to coast Katrina. And his gesture to them is nothing more than an extended middle finger.

I agree. And to take it a step further, I believe if there were a head-on election between the two, Chavez would beat Bush in a landslide.

They would quickly change their tune
It must be frustrating to read these posts, and not be able to punish the people who do not support Bush.

Chavez supporters should pack it up and move to Venezuela! If it is SO terrible in the U.S. why not just move to where it's wonderful? I doubt any of you would be missed...

If you read an earlier post I quite distinctly said I am not a supporter of Bush, that said anyone who is buying into Chavez's BS should maybe travel around Venezuela and talk to the locals, the ones not afraid to voice their concerns
