This is only the begining. You can keep your Kennedys and Kerrys and stuff them back into their liberal enclaves of the northeast.

I can't wait for Cheney/Ashcroft 08! We are taking America back for fine and decent God fearing Americans!

Something can't be right there. Rasmussen has been running daily polls gauging this same exact issue. http://www.rasmussenreports.com/Presidential_Tracking_Poll.htm . For the last three days, Bush has led Kerry 49%-45%...there's no way such a disparity could exist between one Time poll and daily Rasmussen polls.

It would take a pretty deranged take on reality to call John Kerry a leftie. He is somewhat lesser to the right than Bush and Atilla the Hun, leftie no.

I threw that in there just for you.  Sometimes I like going over the top just to rattle the cages.  I can't envision a greater nightmare for a lefty than a Cheney/Ashcroft ticket.

I have determined that the Time poll is the most accurate poll in reflecting my views. At least for now.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

Learyfan, take it like a man. This is a one dog race from here on out. Your candidate has been exposed before the American people. It is all over but the crying. Smell the glove my friend.

"Smell the glove"? I've never heard that term before. What does it mean?

No, the race is long from over. JFK will be the next President of the US of A.

Newsweek's poll had slightly different numbers, but the same 11 point edge. Newsweek says it's 54 to 43.

With two months left to go, it would be pretty unrealistic to believe these numbers won't change before the votes are finally counted.

"Smell the Glove" was the name of one of the greatest rock albums of all time by Spinal Tap.
Quote:


The original cover depicted, in the words of Polymer rep Bobbi Flekman, a "greased, naked woman on all fours with a dog collar around her neck, and a leash and a man?s arm extended out up to here holding on to the leash and pushing a black glove in her face to sniff it."




It is also an immature expression I like to use on sports boards after my team beats another. My intention is lighthearted, I don't mean it as a flame to piss you off.

I expect the gap to widen significantly. The more people get to know John Kerry, the more they don't like him.

You may well be correct. That's almost certainly why it has been one month and four days since Kerry has been exposed to the general press for questions -- his handlers are only too aware of just what a hollow man Kerry demonstrates himself to be whenever he does anything other than read carefully-prepared scripts, and how much of a truly unlikeable candidate they have been saddled with.

On the other hand, it is undeniably true that so many voters hate Bush they'd vote for Al Sharpton if he was the Dem candidate, so I think it unlikely that those numbers will stay the same from now till the election. If Kerry is let off his leash by his handlers, the gap will widen. If he is kept under wraps for a while longer, the gap will likely shrink.

You can bet your bottom dollar the Kerry campaign is regretting deeply their decision to allow him to make that pathetic midnight "rebuttal" to the speeches at the RNC. My prediction is you'll hear nothing out of the Kerry camp for at least a few days more. For them, the longer the better. Unfortunately for Kerry, that's the kind of tactic that is ultimately self-defeating if overplayed. It's a fine line they have to walk.
