Poll Update

POLL UPDATE….In the last few days, the Washington Post poll shows Bush’s lead dropping from 5% to 2%.

In the same period, Rasmussen shows Bush’s lead dropping from 3.6% to .3%.

My guess is that John Edwards’ performance was worth about a point to Kerry. In other words, by the time Bush and Kerry meet on Friday they’ll be in a virtual dead heat.

It’s going to be tension city for a guy named Bush. Again. I wonder if he responds to pressure any better than his old man?

UPDATE: Zogby has some pretty good news for Kerry in its latest report on battleground states. In particular, he now shows that Kerry has caught up to Bush in Ohio.
