Whispering W

Stanley, as I noted at least once in these parts during the campaign, I was increasingly hopeful about a win once I started wearing W. around New York and parts. In the East Village, people would come up to me and whisper, “I love your pin.” or “Go Bush!” or “I’m not the only one!” I really think people were afraid to say they were for W. Might account for some of the polling, for sure. And would explain why people who gave him high job-approval or confidence marks still told phone pollster they were voting for the more acceptable one.
