Slip-Sliding Away

You know the nearer your destination, the more you slip sliding away. Yes!

According to the latest Harris Interactive poll posted on The Wall Street Journal's website Thursday, Kerry secured 48 percent of the intended vote, compared with 47 percent for Bush.

Independent candidate Ralph Nader (news - web sites) garnered two percent of the hypothetical vote.

Hypothetical vote? Ouch. Ralph, you've come a long way, baby.

A slim majority of respondents (51 percent) said they do not believe Bush "deserves to be re-elected for another four years," compared with 45 percent who said they do, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Bush had enjoyed a slight lead of up to 11 points over Kerry in recent polls, as his party held its national convention in New York at the beginning of the month and as Kerry's records in Congress and Vietnam came under sustained attack.

Slight lead? Gimme a break. Every fucking news media all but handed Team Kerry their walking papers with that ficticious "11" point Bush lead. YT remembers watching Paula Zahn drooling over the 11 pt. lead, asking every talking head before her if Kerry was finished. Now it was a 'slight' lead. Okay.

And today, it is no lead.
