Bush losing favor with men

This latest Newsweek poll (from is pretty amazing:

"In general, would you like to see George W. Bush reelected to another term as president, or not?"

Yes No Don't
% % %
ALL 44 50 6
  Men 45 51 4
  Women 42 51 7
  Republicans 86 10 4
  Democrats 10 86 4
  Independents 40 53 7

The gender gap on this question is virtually non-existent. Bush appears to be losing favor with men as much as women. I wonder if they still would like to have a beer with the guy?

The head-to-head numbers are also interesting in that Dean, Clark, Kerry, Lieberman and Gephardt all are within 4-5 points of Bush. Some look at these numbers and say that none of the candidates have broken out to challenge Bush. I look at these numbers and I see an electorate that is getting so sick of Bush that they will find any of these alternatives acceptable as a replacement.

Can we please stop harping on the electability question?
