A new poll for the Associated Press released Thursday gives Bush-Cheney a four-point lead over Kerry-Edwards (assuming Nader is in). There some good news for Republicans here, but the AP is spinning the results as showing a “slight” improvement for the Democratic ticket in the South after the Edwards pick.
By the way, I’m told by a Democratic friend that news about the Kerry campaign suspending their media buys in Arkansas and Louisiana is being over-interpreted in the media. The Dems still plan to spend some money there, and in North Carolina, at least for a while to see how the needles move. They’ve also been in some Virginia markets and, of course, in Florida. Tennessee, however, may not make the list.
