A Lame Duck? Or a Turkey?

John Conyers explains why the US media is unable to properly interpret Bush's historic low poll numbers:
"They wonder: how can a President, just re-elected, have such low poll numbers and hold positions on the issues that are so unpopular? Is he already a lame duck?

Better questions: was he just re-elected legitimately, or was voter suppression and machine malfunction or malfeasance used to manipulate election results? In other words, maybe these polls, rather than our broken election system, better reflect the true will of the people.
