Good poll analysis
By Tom Smith

Good analysis of polling data by Barone, via As I said to anyone who would listen in 2000, it is going to be a close election. In 2000 (I know it's easy to say) I said I was worried that the election was so close, that election fraud could make a difference. I was right, as is so often the case. I am not ready to make a prediction yet, except to say that as of now, it looks close to me. Of course, this could change for any number of reasons, including a successful campaign by W to brand Kerry as the Mass. liberal he actually is. But Kerry and old media both will be working hard to re-brand him as some sort of centrist.
