Newsweek Poll – Kerry Bounce Disappears
There's no story on their site as yet, but RealClear Politics has the new Newsweek national with Bush at 50%, Kerry at 44%, and Ralph at 1%. The 50% figure is something at which to look.
Polls is polls, but it was polls on which the media based its assertion of a Kerry post-debate bounce. Between this poll and the Reuters/Zogby 3-day – also Bush by 4% – it is safe to say that the Kerry's media-bequeathed post-debate bounce has EVAPORATED. I use that term very knowingly.
Oh, I was forming this post in my head earlier but I am going to cite you instead.
True. So true.
See my AFTER-WORD tonight. I'm going to explain that the national polls mean next to nothing this late, but I think this correction will take the PResident back to an 8-10 point lead by Friday.
