1. Forget the Republican's screeching histrionics . . .
Kerry got a solid 5-7 point bounce. I think the * party's convention will be the one to show us the meaning of "negative bounce".

2. A bounce
is a bounce...be it 2 pts or 20 pts. Kerry can win this, as long as we say diligent!

3. Time for Plan B
Edited on Mon Aug-02-04 06:43 PM by Boomer
Plan A: Bush wins the 2004 election

Plan B: Due to national security concerns, the 2004 elections are postponed... indefinitely.

I think the Bushies were waiting to see what happened at the Dem convention before deciding whether Plan A was still viable. It's not, they know it, and Plan B is probably already in effect. The lock down in New York will get stronger, then spread.

5. Look at these numbers re "Trust Candidate on These Areas:"
I can't copy and paste because of the formatting, but big across the board "bounce" for Kerry on all issues:

Scroll about midway down and look for section on "Trust Candidate on These Areas:"

http://abcnews.go.com/sections/politics/Vote2004/kerry_...

Looks mighty good for Kerry, MIGHTY BAD FOR Bush/Rove 04.

8. COOL now time to go stock up on Plastic and Duct Tape
we are gonna see the Terror Meisters tell us why we should be afraid.

What happened to all you have to fear is fear itself (or George Bush and his pals)

Oh and make sure to stock up with copies of the Constitution and 1984

9. Does a bounce mean a coming decline too?
I'm very pleased with Kerry's slow creep up in the polls. Nite nite republicans, don't let Kerry trouble your dreams of world domination.

Everybody in DU, shhhhhhhhhhhhh.

10. Well this is odd
Kerry is ahead on every issue, 2 - 19 pts, except terrorism. Yet people don't know where he stands on the issues??? That doesn't compute at all. Why would you prefer one guy over the other if you didn't know where the first guy stands? Especially by 19 pts?

12. That's an 8 point net bounce; went from 48-46 Bush up to
50-44 Kerry up. In my book that is a net bounce of 8 points for Kerry. Not too shabby, particularly with the small number of undecided voters. That means Kerry essentially took 4% away from Bush.
