Polls, Etc.

A Bush type on the Time poll (quoting roughly): “That’s sort of what we’re seeing across the board. I don’t think it’s five, but I don’t think it’s one either. Its probably about a 3-point lead. Its really right back where it was in 2000, with us with the momentum and a slight lead. I think the tightness of the race helps us. Our people are a little on edge and that’s a good thing. I have never seen anything like the kind of turnout opperations that we are seeing on both sides this year. My guess is that the turn-out fight turn out to be a bit of a wash.”

He is routinely compared to Roy Cohn on a cable-TV program that prides itself on assembling the most thoughtful and plugged-in political analysts and ... Read More
