Good Poll News For Bush

USA Today leads with Bush’s gains in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, where he’s taken the lead over John Kerry.

It feeds the notion that Bush is gaining momentum, picking up steam even BEFORE the convention kicks in.

In fact, several of my liberal friends in New York tell me that among some ardent Kerry supporters, a feeling of inevitable doom is spreading. They are resigned to the idea that Kerry is either going to screw it up or Bush’s evil puppetmasters already have an October surprise in their pocket.

All I can say is “From your lips to God’s ear.”
