Bush Country

I still doubt Bush wins in Michigan, but here’s another poll, from today’s Detroit News, showing him in the lead. Even better news for the president may be that it’s a “registered voters” poll rather than a “likely voters” poll, which means it may slightly underpredict Bush’s strength. Having said that, the numbers are 45.9 percent for Bush and 43.3 pecent for Kerry–very close, and well within the margin of error.
