This is totally statistically insignificant. You can’t break down
numbers inside a poll this way and presume that the poll maintains its
margin-of-error rules. The inside sample is simply too small. As a
result, you cannot argue from this that the Country Folk have turned on
Bush at all. It’s wishful thinking on Greenberg’s and Lizza’s parts.
