    I just voted in the MSNBC poll about the election. The question was: If the presidential election were held this week, who would you vote for?

    With 224914 responses, the current standing are Bush: 58%, Kerry: 41%, and Nader at 1%.

    These are the standings as of 11:44 pm CST.

    This is certainly good news.

    Let's NOT get complacent, though...

    If it holds true it will ONLY be a decisive victory of we *all* actually vote...

    Here's the problem with the polls - not everyone who votes in them is a registered voter - anyone can vote, even people not of voting age!

    Why would it be a victory to re-elect a president who pushes socialized medicine, socialized education, massive deficit spending, the homosexual agenda, and the status quo on abortion?

    I remember when Bush was ahead, there were some polls still purporting to show Kerry was ahead.

    However, now that Gallup, Newsweek, and others have shown Bush's lead has "evaporated", the outliers are those purporting to show Bush ahead.

    But that's not how most polls are tracking it.

    Rasmussen's most recent poll shows Bush's decline, as well. Today's Rasmussen polling:

    The race for the White House is tied once again.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports Presidential Tracking Poll shows President George W. Bush with 47% of the vote and Senator John Kerry with 47%.

    The President's Job Approval rating has dipped to 51%. Also, our weekly ratings for the President's handling of the economy and the situation in Iraq both show declines compared to a week ago.

    http://www.rasmussenreports.com/

    And the electoral vote map shows his happening, albeit a bit slower, as the state polls come in.
    Kerry's picked up Iowa, Ohio, and Minnestota in the latest polling, and as other state are covered, he'll probably show advances in those, too.

    Can Bush pull out of this slide? Sure. All he has to do, is do to Kerry in the next debate what Kerry did to him in the last one.

    The debates may be his last chance.

    Even FOX's survey now shows Bush losing ground.

    "Oct. 6 (Bloomberg) -- Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry gained ground at President George W. Bush's expense in polls taken in Florida, New Jersey, Iowa, New Mexico and New Hampshire after last week's presidential debate.

    Kerry has a 2 percentage point edge in Florida and the candidates are tied in New Hampshire, two states that were among those Bush won in 2000, according to the American Research Group.

    In New Mexico and New Jersey, Kerry leads by 3 percentage points, within the error margin, according to polls. Bush and Kerry are tied in Iowa. The three states backed the Democratic nominee in 2000."

    The slide continues. Apparently, the VP debate did very little to change the trend.

    Mason Dixon has Bush leading Florida 48-44, within the margin of error.

    Today, for the first time in nearly a month, Bush has fallen below the electoral college numbers necessary to win.

    How far is it going to go? Not too much farther, I think, unless Bush turns in another wimpy performance. People will forget how Bush looked mano a mano with Kerry, after a bit. The next debate will be critical.

    Bush's downward spiral continues. For the first time in a month, Kerry has more electoral votes than needed to win.

    This was a little bigger than I expected. Let's see if Bush managed to stop the bleeding with his performance tonight.

    An outspoken commentator in reference to the presidential election polls said that he was TIRED OF HAVING A MAKE-BELIEVE ELECTION EVERY NIGHT.

    There are web sites which show past poll statistics and how inaccurate they have been.

    Zogby seems to be one of the more reliable polls.

    Zogby says Kerry's lead is "precarious".
