You're a little late. Everyone here has already posted this 20 times. I still think it's somewhat bogus, because Bush's bounce is actually bigger than even this suggests. Kerry's train is not only off the tracks, it is blowing up. The Rasmussen 54% approval is the best indicator of Bush's likely finish. Very soon the panicked Dems will start to spend their money protecting their now-vulnerable Senate candidates.
If Newsweek and Time as well as others are acknowledging a big lead for Bush, then it is probably even bigger.
I hope that you are correct about the Senate races. We should see indications of the Dems protecting "their seats" soon.
Have you any poll info on the Daschle race in SD? I am curious about that one, but I am too lazy to research it myself.
The numbers have been a little too good for my comfort. Call me paranoid, but I wouldn't think it too extreme to have these polls falsely reported in order to lull Pres. Bush supporters into a state of complacency. We need to keep on working as hard as if he were way behind.
I love the sound of that.
I am excited about these poll number but I refuse to get tooo cocky. Just remember, there is the 60 minutes interview coming up about Bush and the National Guard and also the Kitty Kelly book. The libs are just drooling waiting for these two to come out. Of what I heard of the Kitty Kelly book its going to be a book full of lies.
LS. The problem with your analysis is that politics is very fluid. What you are correctly observing--(sic) that the train is off the tracks-- is correctable even over a 60 day period. Kerry will be coming hard and fast with negative hype, and something may be able to stick.
Remember that even though we all felt so good about the speeches made, we often forget that when attacks are made, counterattacks will also come. Those have not yet been fully made or evaluated.
Let's keep watching and observing for a couple of weeks, then we will know
It will be interesting to see the Senatorial candidates distancing themselves from K. And going by 2002's boldness, Bush is sure to be full speed ahead helping totally receptive Pub candidates out. If this occurs, Kerry, and the Crats in general, will be deep in a hole that will be near impossible to climb out of.
