44. Here's how it works: 48% of LIKELY voters compared to 44% of REGISTERED
Edited on Mon May-10-04 07:02 PM by 0rganism
Likely = those who voted in the last election, maybe in a high-turnout age group

If you read the whole article, you'll notice that among the REGISTERED voters, Kerry gained 3 points and bush lost 3 points.

"Kerry pollster Mark Mellman said the new poll shows Kerry gaining ground among registered voters, a bigger group than likely voters. Kerry went from 47% to 50% in a week; Bush went from 47% to 44%. Mellman said that suggests Kerry's ad campaign and events in Iraq are taking a toll on Bush. He also said the only president 'this far behind' at this point in an election year was Gerald Ford, and he lost."
