The latest CNN/Gallup/USA Today poll
came out today. The poll was taken from March 26 through March 28, the height of the 9/11 commission hearings and Richard Clarke attacks, and shows that Bush was not affected by these events. Bush leads Kerry 51% to 47% in a two way race, and 49% to 45% if Nader is included. Everyone had been saying how bad of a week it was for Bush; the Democrats and Clarke attacking him for not preventing 9/11, and the press constantly telling us how bad this was for Bush and how it would take away his strongest issue. If this bad of a week for Bush could not help Kerry, what will? Bush's approval ratings seemed to have bottomed and are now heading up; and Kerry's are going down as more Americans learn about who he actually is.
