The Corner

My Focus Group

Someone I consider a good focus group — because she’s not very partisan and certainly is no political junkie — thought Bush looked a little tired. But she also thought he was the more persuasive. Why? Because he looked and sounded like a president. And Kerry looked and sounded like someone who wants Bush’s job.

In her view, Bush didn’t knock Kerry out. If anything, he gave the impression that he didn’t want to be bothering with this guy, that he had more important fish to fry. But that didn’t change her mind. She was leanign toward Bush before. She’ll probably vote for Bush now.
