Everyone's forgetting how weak Bush was.  Perot didn't beat Bush; Bush beat himself.  Perot's candidacy provided an alternative for angry Republicans...and without Perot, a majority of those angry at Bush would have stayed home.

Anybody know any poll info from the period when Perot had dropped out? I've always wondered about this, but I've never seen the numbers.

Gallup does have graphs of the polling data for all elections since 1936, but I have lost the link.  Maybe somebody can help us out.
