Kerry Takes Lead Over Bush, Fox News Survey Finds (Update1)
Aug. 6 (Bloomberg) -- Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry took a 4 percentage point lead over President George W. Bush after the Democratic National Convention, according to a Fox News/Opinion Dynamics Poll.

Kerry, 60, a four-term Massachusetts senator, was in a statistical tie with Bush before the convention in Boston last week, the poll said. A poll of 900 registered voters conducted Aug. 3-4 found Kerry with 46 percent to 42 percent for Bush and 2 percent for independent candidate Ralph Nader. The margin for error is 3 percentage points.

Bush's job approval rating is 44 percent, down from 47 percent last month and the lowest level the poll has found during his presidency.

Kerry gained an average of 2.1 percentage points in the Fox poll and six other nationwide surveys conducted after his party's convention. Kerry said Wednesday that he went into the convention with poll standings above 48 percent, higher than most previous challengers in past elections.

1. A forty four
approval for chimpbutt is dismal, especially in a FAUX poll. Better notify CNN; they still think that * got a bounce from our convention.

4. You are seriously quoting Fox because you like what it says?
They are only energizing their base. They need to make sure they feel somewhat threatened to vote but not threatened enough to feel Kerry has made a real dent in the poll numbers.If Fox is saying 4% It is at least * % and Chimp is dowm to 40%.They don't want their base complacent in a tough race!
