bad news indeed, but i expect those numbers will be challenged by reality soon.
analysts caution that individual polls can be misleading
i think there would have been a bump after the dnc if we saw a bigger difference from the repubs, instead kerry and co. tried to outmilitary the military party, that was quite a disappointment for more than a few ppl. the left would have given kerry a bump if he had come out against military solutions to our problems.
seems to me that the rnc has successfuly invigorated the fundamentalis christian and more moderate(schwarzenneger conservatives) right with campaign blitz, glitz, and foxified lies. despite the large numbers of opposition relegated to a diverse abb campaign.
