CBS News: Democrats "Increasingly Optimistic" About Kerry's Chances

Kausfiles used to have quite a bit of fun with the LA Times' liberal-coccoon wishful thinking, always claiming that Gray Davis' advisors were "increasingly optimistic" about trouncing Schwarzenegger.

Kausfiles had big funny the day after Schwarzenegger replaced Davis, easily winning the run-off, and Davis easily losing the recall; Kausfiles speculated that the LA Times headline would be, Davis Recalled; Schwarzenegger Elected Governor; Davis' Aides "Increasingly Optimistic."

Well, CBS News has got nothing on the LA Times.

GALLUP: Bush leads Kerry by 14 points in three-way matchup, building upon his big convention bounce.

CBS News:

Despite turmoil in the John Kerry campaign, key Democrats believe Kerry is back on-message and poised to overtake President Bush by Election Day. Following two weeks of Kerry campaign reorganization, optimism flourishes among Democratic insiders.

Veteran Democratic strategists agree that John Kerry had a poor August, was off message and allowed President Bush to drive the momentum of the campaign. That’s ending, in party veterans’ view.

While the cohesiveness of the Democratic campaign remains in question, Kerry’s coming turn around does not among many party veterans. They believe the Kerry campaign has sufficiently restructured and is now on track.

The liberal media has to understand something: they may think they're helping their liberal heroes, and to some small extent they are, but this sort of obvious boosterism also hurts the liberal candidates they're trying to get elected.
