Since Dave et al quit pushing polls...

I thought it likely because they were too busy (as I can't think of any other logical reason for their failure to continue offering them) so as a public service I offer:

Bush leads among Florida voters, poll shows
11:07 AM CDT on Thursday, September 23, 2004


Bloomberg News


U.S. President George W. Bush leads Democratic challenger John Kerry 49 percent to 41 percent among registered voters in Florida, a Quinnipiac University poll found. Independent candidate Ralph Nader drew 5 percent.

The survey of 819 registered voters was conducted from Sept. 18 to Sept. 21 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points. The findings reverse Kerry's lead of 47 percent to 41 percent in an Aug. 12 Quinnipiac poll.

Hi, Ed.

Most recent polls show the election back within the margin of error, though the consensus is Bush is still ahead. kerry has a real problem in FL, though, since Bush is claiming personal credit for the hurricane relief that he really had nothing direct to do with.

Hi, Brian.

I heard it with my own ears on videotape of one of his three (or is it now four) "inspection tours" of FL since the first one hit. The language used (Usually "I," sometime "we") gives the impression it's his doing that the aid is coming.

Your dislike is distorting I think.

Granted any politician would make sure to get a photo op or two out of being there.

But the The language used (Usually "I," sometime "we") gives the impression it's his doing that the aid is coming.
overlooks simple fact.

A president always says I or we when promising emergency relief in an interview in a disaster area.

The camera's rolling and "I intend to go back to Washington and expediate ....... for the terrible suffering here.....

Shrug would happen the month after an election with a lame duck one just as much as a month after a new one's inaugration.

Just over sensitivity from your view, IMO.

What a vivid imagination...

I challenge you for some proof that he is taking credit for emergency relief Dave.

He is being credited by the people with taking the time to actually GO THERE while Kerry avoided Florida as he ASSUMED Florida was wrapped up for him.

Let's have some proof now Dave and your "I heard something somewhere that sounded like..." isn't going to cut it.

What are you thinking? That you can out Rather Rather?
