New Newsweek Poll shows Bush's lead VANISHED!

With voters widely viewing Kerry as the debates winner, Bushs lead in the NEWSWEEK poll has evaporated


With a solid majority of voters concluding that John Kerry outperformed George W. Bush in the first presidential debate on Thursday, the presidents lead in the race for the White House has vanished, according to the latest NEWSWEEK poll. In the first national telephone poll using a fresh sample, NEWSWEEK found the race now statistically tied among all registered voters, 47 percent of whom say they would vote for Kerry and 45 percent for George W. Bush in a three-way race.

Removing Independent candidate Ralph Nader, who draws 2 percent of the vote, widens the Kerry-Edwards lead to three points with 49 percent of the vote versus the incumbents 46 percent.
Four weeks ago the Republican ticket, coming out of a successful convention in New York, enjoyed an 11-point lead over Kerry-Edwards with Bush pulling 52 percent of the vote and the challenger just 41 percent.


Remember - this is the same outfit whose poll showing Bush ahead by 11 points right after the Convention was blared all over the airwaves by the media claiming that Kerry was in such dire straits.

Wonder how much play THIS poll will get in the next few days.
