13. Kerry is LEADING in 7 of 12 polls. His 12-poll average lead is 1.73%
Edited on Sat Apr-24-04 11:04 AM by TruthIsAll
Only a slight drop from 2.64% in March. And only due to the pro-Bush shills at CNN, ABC and IBD who had a 10% Bushit turnaround. I don't trust their numbers. I don't believe Kerry lost a vote.

I predicted a month ago that they would not let Bush fall further. I believe they are rigging the polls to keep it "close".

Its NOT really close. Kerry is leading. He has the Big Mo and will only lengthen his lead..

Check Zogby, Newsweek, ARG, CBS.

And Kerry is raising megabucks at a record pace. Bush has shot a $50 million load already. Now its time for Kerry to spend some of that money. And watch his lead grow - but not on CNN, Fox, Msnbc or IBD. They are propping up Bush.

Look to Zogby for the truth.

16. I believe ya, TruthIsAll.
But I still think it's true that the media shills/whores/liars are gonna spin it this way, no matter what. They'll do it until December, even if Kerry wins by 20,000,000 votes and takes every state but Wyoming. (No offense to Wyomingans. . . . .)


And personally I think Kerry and his campaign are extremely wise in not getting out there now. I think their relative silence keeps the * team guessing and off balance.

But some people say I think too much. . . .


I think, therefore I am

2. Haha, no kidding...
But, give Kerry half a chance...I'm positive he's got some campaigning up his sleeve that he'll unleash when the time and money is right.

11. Well
I caught the first bit of that, and I might say it was a wonderful introduction, but after that, when he started talking about cutting corporate taxes, and saying a lot of "republican" things, I really lost interest. If he doesn't do something to regain the Deaniacs, and Naderites, he's going to lose miserably. His move to the center will be further problematic.

And about redistribution, not only is it not a bad thing, but it is an absolute necessity if we hope to keep our economy going. You should read Perfectly Legal, by David Cay Johnston.

7. I think you're forgetting something
It's April! Long time to go.

Wasn't Kerry leading in the polls like 2 weeks ago? Isn't it conceivable that the national convention in July, with all its fanfare and national exposure, will give us a bounce?

How much money has Kerry spent (Of the 55 million he raised last quarter and now 70 million overall) Not much yet, which is good. And it's still pouring in.

Have patience Samuelson. Bush has blown his wad.

10. Come on guys...
.... most of these "polls" aren't worth the paper they are printed on. They use ridiculously small samples, they cannot really sample likely voters because likely voters do not answer calls they can't identify with their caller id.

The real poll, coming in November, will be a blowout. Bush* is over, and no amount of rah-rah bullsh*t is going to change that.

Don't let them scare you with this crap!

14. The polls are a political tool used by the government....
to maintain stability as the Administration clings to its last shred of credibility. It tells people that things are going well...the majority still support the "war"...Bush is still ahead in the polls...etc..etc.. they are simple manipulation of government propaganda. They are meaningless.
