New Poll

NEW POLL….It’s only one poll, but this is definitely bad news for John Kerry: Time has Bush up 52% to 41%. Ouch.

UPDATE: On the other hand, today’s Rasmussen poll, which covers about the same period as the Time poll, has Bush up only 49%-45%. Still not exactly good news for Kerry, but not a hole he can’t get out of, either.

UPDATE 2: Josh Marshall notes that the Zogby and ARG polls for this period show only a slight lead for Bush. So is the Time poll an outlier or a bellwether? Hard to say.
