Good too see you returning to your old ridiculously overconfident self.
Actually, I think this may be due to the large number of military voters on Guam; active-duty military are strongly in favor of re-electing Bush.
These results cannot be meaningful in anything but an advisory sense. Votes have to be assigned to a slates of Electors to determine the outcome of the Presidential race. Americans do not vote for the President - the Electors do that.
Sheesh. If you are in the military, you by no means necessarily switch your registration every time you move. In 2000, Bush beat Gore in Guam by ~2000 votes. He beat Kerry by ~10000 votes. What does it mean? Jack squat, since it's just a meaningless straw poll.
