PapaScott I like big blogs and I cannot lie! 🐘

In citing a rant about the anti-American German press (ironically, from a German journalist in the German press), Eamonn makes the assertion (common among warbloggers) that "only by cynical Bush-baiting (did Schröder) manage to cling to power".

I'm just wondering, is there any political data to either back this up or refute this? My gut feeling is that this is not directly true, as Stoiber did not present a clear alternative on Iraq (in fact, in the end, he was even more anti-war than Schröder). But are there any polls or analyses on the effect of the Iraq issue on the 2002 election?
