Kerry’s Lead Drops 8 Points

The poll says Bush Support Steady in Wake of Clarke Criticisms: but actually, “He [Bush] is now running even with Sen. John Kerry in a head-to-head match-up among registered voters (47% Kerry- 46% Bush) after trailing Kerry by 52%-43% in mid-March.”

Simple messages, repeated over and over. “Kerry will raise your taxes.” “Kerry will not protect your children.” “Kerry waffles on issues.” And one thing I think is a big factor, under the radar smears being circulated over the internet.
