A Dukakian Fall?

"Fall" means both "autumn" and, well, "fall." I'm crafty like that.

The convention/SwiftVets/getting to know John Forbes Kerry seems to finally show up in Rasmussen's polling.

49-45: This is the first time that Bush has reached the 49% mark in the Tracking Poll since Kerry wrapped up the Democratic nomination on Super Tuesday (March 2). It's also the first time Bush has been up by four points since April 26.

Kerry reached 49% a few times following his convention but neither candidate has yet reached the 50% mark.

As Harvey Keitel said, "Let's not all start sucking each other's dicks just yet, gentlemen." Still, better small and evanscent movement in our direction than against us. Even if this bounce won't last, even getting a bounce is an accomplishment. At least that means that the public is capable of being persuaded, and certain arguments and facts have been/may yet be capable of persuading them.


Not Even Related at All Update: Actually, this is an update to the Paul Krugman Insanity post, but that's buried by now.

MyPetJawa thinks he's got a picture of the Princeton Paranoiac protesting the RNC.
