Poll: Hypothetical Polls Are Stupid
CNN is hyping it's latest poll:
Poll: Bush would lose an election if held this year

(CNN) -- A majority would vote for a Democrat over President Bush if an election were held this year, according to a CNN/USA Today/Gallup Poll released Tuesday.

In the latest poll, 55 percent of the respondents said that they would vote for the Democratic candidate if Bush were again running for the presidency this year.

Thirty-nine percent of those interviewed said they would vote for Bush in the hypothetical election.

First of all, tell us something we don't already know. The guy's approval ratings are in the toilet, and mostly for good reasons. The sad thing is that the Democrats don't have a "hypothetical candidate" in their ranks. They have actual candidates with who are either big time losers (Gore, Kerry), have big time baggage (Shrillary) or are just too unknown. I'd probably vote for my favorite hypothetical Democrat too if there was an election. I'm thinking divided government is where it's at.
