Anyway, here's what AP's saying about their latest poll (released about an hour ago). Kerry's leading right now, but AP's very lukewarm about it:
Kerry 48, Bush 45, Nader 3 - as compared to their last poll of Bush 48, Kerry 45, Nader 3. Folks, that's not a three point gain for Kerry - that's a 6 point swing. Well beyond the MOE. And easily almost earth shattering, given the apparent non-movement of most of the electorate in almost every poll.
So, why did I title this post, "Linda, Linda, Linda"? I'm shaking my head and mumbling those words like the village idiot after reading the following in the same story, while at the same time stifling the urge to laugh like a madman:
"I think President Bush has done an excellent job,' said Linda Roberts, a conservative Republican from Liberal, Kansas. "He's a Christian. I don't believe there's any reason to kill babies by abortion. I don't believe in gay marriage. I believe he is for equal rights, but also for God's rights."This is what we're up against, folks. See what I mean about AP editorial slant?
Some AP editor was waiting literally weeks to insert that paragraph into a story.
