The Tracking Poll is updated daily by noon Eastern. Two-thirds of the interview for today's report were completed after the President's speech on Thursday night.

THIS is the poll we'll all hear about.
I don't understand their numbers, they sure don't change much even as all the rest change drastically.
Isn't this one of the automated polls?
Edwards DOB: 10 Jun 53
Cheney DOB : 31 Jan 40
In 1973, the draft ended and the U.S. converted to
an All-Volunteer military.
Edwards turned 18 in 1971.
John Edwards COULD have served during Vietnam BUT didn't.
Instead he went to college from '70-'74
He enrolled at Clemson University
but dropped out in his first year,
after a football scholarship fell through
"...A proud product of public schools, John became the first person in his family to attend college.
He worked his way through North Carolina State University where he graduated with high honors in 1974,
and then earned a law degree with honors in 1977 from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. .."
"I will not have my commitment to defending this country questioned
by those who refused to serve when they had had a chance"

Questions for Senator Kerry!
1) Are you going to dump Edwards as your VP
because he didn't serve when he could have?
2) How's Al Hubbard now-a-days?
Is he getting ready to hit your campaign trail?
3) Is it true Jane Fonda is coming out to?
I believe Rasmussen is polling scared since his 2000 disaster.
The leftwing 527s and the MSM have to really start cranking up now.
"Fairness" be d*mned. This is serious, John Kerry could LOSE, and in doing so, by any more than a razor-thin margin, could wreck the Democrat party for a generation.
Not really sure of their numbers, no, it is not an automated poll (as far as I know), and it is of LIKELY Voters.....
Just putting it out there.
You can bet CNN will touting this poll as the most accurate and the double digit "W" poll as flawed!
A little more about his 2000 disaster, pls. Rasmussen seems very tilted towards the Dems....a lot like ole Z.
Has the Bush bounce already ended? That's it -- four points for three days with a quick narrowing to two?
Labor Day weekend ... Republicans are out of town. Which reminds me ... what am I doing here?
The polls of next week will give a good idea of where we are. I am thinking they will show Bush ahead by 5 or 6 points.
It IS automated actually, and yes, it's supposedly likely voters.
What about Kerry's four deferments (one for each college year) and his attempt at a fifth deferment for studying in France? Which one of the Kennedy's or their henchmen pulled strings so Kerry could get into the Naval Reserves when his deferments had run out? Inquiring minds want to know.
Rasmussen's outfit at the time, Portrait of America, had Bush beating Gore, the day before the election, by 9 points... I believe he had it at 49% - 40%
It might have been without the cheating.
I guess we'll have to wait for Gallup to settle it.
We're all better off not assuming a bounce. That sort of euphoria losese elections.
Probably something between the 11-point lead and this is reality. But the media will use this one and so will Kerry.
"Who leads after Labor Day" is the standard for winning they say. So this is the crucial week!
I think the polls are flawed. That's doesn't mean that Time and Newsweek didn't stumble onto the truth in their 10-11% victories for Bush. I think it might even be 9%. Maybe more. But it seems that Kerry would hold a SOLID 35% of rabid, core anti-American voters, foreign nationals, and those voting from the graveyard. Solid 35. So I expect Kerry finishes in the low 40s. That leaves Bush, at best, in the mid-50s. But he should get the large majority of the electoral college. People can call it a mandate or not. They tried to give Clinton a 'mandate', and didn't get 50%.
It's not even a 2 point gap. It's 1.2%! Man, I hope Ras is an outlier...
I wonder what their refusal rate is....that rate of folks who hang up.
There's some outfit called USASurvey that claims to be more accurate than the industry average.
