Gallup: Bush up 50%-47% Among Likely Voters

Two polls are a trend:

Bush's favorable rating of 54% was his highest since April. By contrast, Kerry's 52% was his lowest since January.

Bush dominated on personal traits such as "honest and trustworthy" and "stands up for what he believes in." But Kerry continued to lead Bush when people were asked who would better handle taxes, education, Medicare and the economy.

The Lead May Not Be Big, and It Might Not be Permanent, But It Is Real Update: How do I know?

I know because the Kerry Camp believes it's real. The "let's debate once a week" ploy was last trotted out when Kerry was an unknown candidate well behind Bush in the polls. We didn't hear anything about weekly debates when Kerry was ahead in the polls, now did we?

The Poverty Figures Aren't Enough To Help You, So Stop Dancing Like a Jackass Update: Poverty climbs 4%; Kerry's retarded celebrations climb 40%.

Update: LAT Poll Shows Push Pulling Ahead in 3 Battlegrounds: Now up in MO, OH, WI.

But...

New FoxPoll shows dead heat, with Kerry up eleven points (49-38) in battlegrounds. (This particular finding has a MOE of +/- 6, though.)

Possible Correction: Clark says I might have misheard; he thinks that this referred to independents in swing states only, which is a little better (but not much). But he's not quite sure either-- this item really did whir by.

More: Edges Kerry in PA among LV's?

Update: Fred Barnes, at the end of the Brit Hume show, mentions that he knows that Kerry thinks he's in trouble because he's asking for weekly debates. Advantage-- Ace of Spades HQ by an hour.
