Right Pollster's Sees Tough Bush Reelection

This from conservative Christian pollster George Barna:

While people's knowledge of [Bush's Democratic ] contenders is generally slim-to-none, and most voters hold Mr. Bush in high regard, re-election will be no easy prospect for the sitting president. Asked how likely they would be to vote for him if the election were held today, just one out of every four registered voters (27%) said they would "definitely" vote for Mr. Bush, with another 20% saying they would "probably" do so. Just as many voters said they would "definitely not" vote for him as said they definitely would (25%), with one in seven saying they would "probably not" support him (14%).
In some ways, one of the most interesting comments by Barna -- observing what's been true in most polls -- is that whatever the positive and negative ratings Bush receives (57% positive to 36% negative for Barna's survey), there is a remarkably small number of undecideds:
Surprisingly, few people have no opinion on this matter (7%), indicating that Americans are quite engaged in monitoring the president's performance in office.
