Do you think President Bush’s appearances help Republican candidates?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on November 2, 2006
“If I were them, I would distance myself from him as much as possible. His appearances only hurt their chances.”
“Absolutely not. I think he’s their Kryptonite. People can finally see that he wears no clothes. At best, he’s incompetent; at worst, he’s a criminal. I think people are ready for a change.”
“Not necessarily. I think there’s such bad press about Bush right now. I think people really question his leadership.”
“I think it helps them raise money, because his appearance fires up the base and they can charge more money to see him than just the candidate. Whether it will actually help them get elected or not is another story.”
