Cycling Forums Presidential Poll

I got an e-mail from Cycling Forums, a place I occasionally visit but don't post on, and one of the threads pertained to political leanings. The poll was of about 200 people, and, surprisingly, President Bush had 42.27% of those "votes."

Considering that all of my cycling friends appear to lean a bit or a lot left, I was surprised with how close this is. I remember once at a gas station rest stop on a ride, someone brought up gun control, and I pifflepoffled it and obtained lots of surprised looks. Probably mentioned something to the effect of knife control, and then the moment passed.

If the roadies are for the most part supportive of President Bush...

That would be pretty cool. If Bush could get that sort of support from all of the marginal groups, he'd be doing terrific.

I never thought about it, but I guess avid cyclists are generally lefty leaning, or so it would seem on the face of it. Maybe things are changing.
