Who are these people?

Unbelievable! The latest ABC Poll shows that 33% of Americans still trust Georgie to do a better job than the Democrats in handling the mad clusterfuck in Iraq. Who are these people? How do they justify this?

As ratings go, 33% is far from a ringing endorsement, or a mandate, or even "political capital". But one-third is still a pretty big chunk of the electorate, certainly a lot more support than Georgie should be able to command at this sick and sad point in the game. What has he done so far that would make these people think he could suddenly about-face and start getting it right? It boggles.
