Polls Suggest a Double-Digit Bush Lead

15 minutes ago

By MARY DALRYMPLE and DEB RIECHMANN, Associated Press Writers

AKRON, Ohio - President Bush (news - web sites) and John Kerry (news - web sites) battled over the economy and jobs in a small corner of the campaign's most fiercely contested state Saturday as polls showed a post-convention surge for the Republican in the White House.

All Election Coverage


 

Late Saturday, Teresa Heinz Kerry, the wife of the Democratic presidential candidate, was taken to a hospital in Mason City, Iowa, after complaining of an upset stomach, a spokeswoman said. She was taken to Mercy Medical Center-North Iowa by ambulance from the airport.

"As a precaution, Mrs. Heinz Kerry had a series of routine tests performed and was released," said Sarah Geggenheimar, a spokeswoman for Heinz Kerry. "She is feeling better and is traveling to her home in Pittsburgh tonight as planned."

Heinz Kerry had just finished a private meeting with a group of local Democrats to talk about health care. She was traveling separately from her husband.

With little more than eight weeks remaining to Election Day, a Newsweek survey gave the president a lead of 52-41 over Kerry, with independent Ralph Nader (news - web sites) at 3 percent. A Time Magazine poll released a day earlier also made it an 11-point race.

"We're doing good," Kerry told an Ohio supporter. "They're going to get a bounce out of the convention, but we'll be coming back."

Presidential candidates often enjoy a boost in support in polls taken in the wake of their party conventions. Sometimes that can portend victory — but such gains also can melt away rapidly in the heat of a fall campaign.

Bush and Kerry both chose Ohio for their stage at the beginning of the Labor Day weekend, traditionally viewed as the kickoff for the fall campaign.

"They promised to create 6 million jobs, and guess what? They're about 7 million short," said Kerry, who also criticized the administration's new 17 percent increase in Medicare premiums.

"They can't come here to Akron or to any other place in America and talk to you about all the jobs that they created, because they haven't," he added.

A few miles up Interstate 77 outside Cleveland, Bush conceded the state has "pockets of unemployment that are unacceptable."

At the same time, he said, "the economy is strong and getting stronger," and accused his Democratic rival of proposing tax increases that would crimp the economy.

"He's not going to be taxing anybody in '05, because he's not going to win," the president added quickly to applause from his supporters in Broadview Heights. "We're going to win Ohio and we're going to win the country."

Kerry has said he would restore taxes to pre-Bush levels on people earning more than $200,000 to help pay for expanded health care coverage.

No Republican — Bush included — has ever won the White House without carrying Ohio, but lingering unemployment and anger about jobs getting shipped overseas have made the state a tossup.

Both men campaigned across the northeastern, Democratic part of the state, signaling a desire by Kerry to maximize his support, and an attempt by the president to hold down his rival's margins.

"I believe we need a new direction for America's families, and together, we're going to put the middle class first and get our economy back on track," the Massachusetts senator said in the Democrats' weekly radio address.

 

Ohio had an unemployment rate of 5.9 percent in July, the latest available. The national rate was 5.5 percent the same month, dipping to 5.4 percent in August.

Bush seized on new employment numbers showing 144,000 new jobs were added to payrolls as evidence of an improving economy. Kerry said it merely confirmed that the president's term would probably end with a net loss of jobs, the first since the Great Depression.

Kerry also criticized Bush for the 17 percent increase in Medicare premiums that beneficiaries will confront next year — an $11.60 jump per month and the largest in the history of the program.

A new campaign ad that starts airing Tuesday shows Bush promising in his convention speech to protect seniors, and then points to the Medicare increase announced a day later. "The wrong direction for the country," the narrator says.

An opponent of the Medicare prescription drug legislation that Bush signed earlier this year, Kerry criticized Bush in Ohio for policies that block Americans from buying their medicine at lower cost in Canada.

For his part, Bush said the tax cuts he pushed through Congress had helped restore economic growth after recession and the terrorism attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

"We have got a plan to make sure that people who want a job can find one. The plan says that in order to keep jobs in America, we got to keep your taxes low," he said.

"Running up the taxes on the people right now would hurt the economic vitality and growth."

Kerry has said he will roll back tax cuts on the wealthiest Americans, but will cut taxes further for the middle class.

"This is not the time to give tax cuts to the Bill Gates (news - web sites) of the world," said Kerry's running mate, John Edwards (news - web sites), speaking in Newport, Wis., about the nearly $400 billion record deficit.

Vice President Dick Cheney (news - web sites), campaigning in Roswell, N.M., continued criticizing Kerry for his vow to build coalitions and work with the United Nations (news - web sites) before going to war.

"We will never seek a permission slip to defend the United States," Cheney said on his fourth trip to New Mexico this year.

The Newsweek poll of 1,008 registered voters was taken Thursday and Friday and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

The poll also found Bush's approval rating at 52 percent, the first time it has topped 50 percent in the magazine's surveys since January. Also, 53 percent said they wanted to see Bush re-elected.

Both sides downplayed the polls. "I've got a lot of work to do," Bush said at an Ohio ice cream shop.

Kerry spokesman David Wade said the election won't be decided on a couple of national polls. "This is a race that's going to be decided in battleground states," he said.

Pat Buchanan was on Russert this evening (just caught the last few minutes) and phrases like: "Kerry is in a straight-jacket", "damaged goods", "Bush will win" - the consensus of Buchanan and a guest (?). Perhaps someone caught the whole thing.

"Both sides downplayed the polls. "I've got a lot of work to do," Bush said at an Ohio ice cream shop. "

We cannot forget that there is a near monopoly of blind liberalism in the press, the professors molding the minds of our young people at our universities, the Hollywood me-me-me crowd that holds great influence over many just because they can entertain, hip hop/rap gangsta's who have great influence on our young people, etc, etc.

Keeping a President in office who is willing to face the vitriol of the many who are blinded to the fact that he is a far better leader than they deserve and the just the sort of leader this nation and the world needs at this time will not be easy.

"We're doing good," Kerry told an Ohio supporter. "They're going to get a bounce out of the convention, but we'll be coming back."

He makes it sound like there is always a bounce to be expected after a Paty's convention. But when he didn't get one they shrgged it off (publicly atleast) as due to the fact that there just weren't that many undecideds to be had in this race.

The Democratic Party has become the party of pure bull and hate and nothing but bull hate.

The democrats long term strategic plan is to work toward all American women having abortions to stifle the birth rate. (forty million murdered Americans to date that will never realize the American dream, that is to be reserved for illegals)

Kerry and crew will scream that to maintain the worker ratio needed to pay into SS for paying the coming baby boomer's retirement, the flood gates to the south must be opened ever more widely for the Latino flow.

Folks it pains me to say it, but. Abortion was never about women's rights, it was to insure the birth of native born sons and daughters would never happen, abortion was about destroying the America as we have known it forever.

The commies and democrats have won, it is now only a matter of time until fruition.

nice spin there - sounds more like President Bush is looking to make inroads into Kerry's supporting areas in the state while the Kerry campaign frantically tries to shore up its base.

we may have a full flegged shift in votes not just a bounce.

1. The media is saying "suggest" in order to soft pedal results. (DON'T PANIC!!!!)

2. They start with the sympathy story of tuhreza being sick. They want the human sid of all of us to "hope she feels better" AND transfer this to hoping kerry's campaign feels better soon.

IOW The increase in Bush polling is just a sickness which will be cured in the eyes of the AP.

Good morning,
re: JfK in Vietnam?? I don't think so but this is what I heard and may or may-not be true; the original JFKennedy assumed responsibility for Vietnam after the French surrender, so possibly the new JfKerry is connected to Vietnam by way of his French/Swiss/Irish/Jewish/African relatives or connections. Still not sure if he ever set foot in Vietnam but I heard he saw a movie about SE-Asia and was really, really interested in Cambodia. JfK was excited and was mumbling something about a Bamboo Bong Import/Export business shipped via small boats. JfK, who I believe won the America's Cup as skipper, realized this area is easily traversed by using the many small rivers. I think there are some books on this. John was always known for his ability to find the Gold in any situation. I understand he was considered the New Keynes and spent time in France, El Salvador, Cuba, China and Pittsburgh to assist these countries with the implementation of his great Gold-digging Theory of Economics. I also think, or possibly I read he was honored at the great Business Schools & may have a number of Honorary PhD's and numerous technical publications. Then again maybe JfK visited Vietnam while he was involved in investing in some major harbor projects and was trying to get that Bong business back on track! I do know JfK was in China recently, that would be another possibility he had visited Vietnam. I am hoping to verify this history through Terry McAuliffe, Jfk's official biographer and CEO, Gold-fome, Inc.

I really hate this. When the polls tighten up (and they will) the media is going to make a huge noise about, "BUSH LOSING GROUND TO THE KERRY JUGGERNAUT".

We need to act like and fight like we are behind.

Kerry will pull out after the debates, finding out his wife is "ill" and he needs to take care of her.

It would be nice if AP pointed out that not only did Kerry get a negative bounce from his convention, but the media's conventional wisdom was that Bush wouldn't get a bounce, due to the electorate being so polarized.

Thanks, Pat. Swift Boat Vets are Kerry's worst nightmare. Those screaming fits he wakes up with in the middle of the night...according to TerAYsa when she slaps him and yells, "Shut up!"...Swift Boat Vets are about to tell us all about them.

How much longer can Kerry stand this without quitting? RAT party honchos are making contingency plans. TerAYsa's trip to the hospital yesterday as her meds wore off...that might be useful. Hmmm. This would work for Kerry. A two-fer. He commits TerAYsa to the local loony bin and takes control of her billions. But he can't stay on the ticket because her kids are about to sue him, and he needs all his wits to keep his hands on the family loot. No time to be President, sorry. Meanwhile, Bill's recuperating nicely. TADA! Hill steps from behind that curtain!

TerAYsa mumbled something about her 'meds' as the ambulance carted her off. Thorazine, no doubt. She's got to be tearing out all that expensively dyed hair at the millions she's illegally poured into Kerry's campaign. Journalists have the goods on this, but nobody's come out with it...yet. Nobody wants to be accused of piling on. Every day, in every way, it keeps getting better and better.

Yesterday, Kerry in Steubenville, Ohio, trying to keep nuns with placards from the hall. Hint: They weren't pro Kerry. He stomps around, bashing Bush, and if you look closely, you can't help but notice that his face is melting a la Inspector Clouseau. Bags under his eyes sliding sideways toward his ears. I kid you not. He needs more Botox, another facelift, or both.

So we've got two polls - neither top-of-the-line pollsters - being reported again and again. I have no doubt that there has been a notable swing, but there's too much emphasis on these couple of polls.

"That is silly. NOW is always happy when a fetus gets its brains sucked out. If is Latino or white makes no difference...as long as it is offered to Moloch."

It is only silly and makes no sense to you.

The large majority of Latinos are practicing Catholics, (nothing wrong with that, until it is used as a politcal weapon) as an ethnic group they are not into abortions. (look at the large, if not huge families of poor Latinos)

Abortion is a means to forever change the demographics of America, it is the left's route to power, to have a huge population influx of a poorly or non-educated group and with typical class warfare, promises of welfare benefits and turn that group into a huge monolithic democrat voting block. ( a great percentage of Mexican illegals cannot even read or write Spanish, forget about English)

The democrat left commies want Americans to be no better off or treated no different from other peoples in the poorest most backward nations on earth. If you have a poor population on the dole cooking their black beans and rice over a open pit fire out in the back yard, you have a permanently discontented class to incite as foot soldiers to riot and intimidate.

I'm not up to speed on posting pics, but if you find a link to that Steubenville appearance, check out Kerry's face. His cheekbones have bags that weren't there a few days ago. And Botox took care of his original bags under the eyes problem, so either he's melting or needs another treatment.

Oh...and all this time I thought you were the nut.

The large majority of Latinos are practicing Catholics.

So the Catholics with their big families are going to usurp the dumb whites who are having all the abortions. It is all so clear now...and so diabolical. Thanks for clarifying it.

A great percentage of Americans cannot read or write English. Guess what? They don't vote.

The democrat left commies want Americans to be no better off or treated no different from other peoples in the poorest most backward nations on earth.

I know a few 'rats and not one of them want everyone to be poor and eat bugs.
