Glenn Reynolds points to these comments on a BBC page from voters explaining why they voted for President Bush as interesting. And they are interesting as a cross-section of voters motivations, however I don't think that anyone should conclude they are any kind of real sample.
Not least because of the faked ones like:
I voted for Bush because I a run a larger corporation that needs him in office. Without the Bush administration's alterations of previously existing law, my company would not be able to make such large profits. The administration has provided the necessary loop holes in environmental and fair competition laws. They have allowed us to exploit the intent of the law without fear of prosecution.

Now I can't figure out how much editing the BBC did, but couldn't even they figure out that that was a fake one? Or are they getting advice from CBS?
