More onn LA Times poll

Ronald Brownstein:

President Bush heads into next week's Republican National Convention with voters moving slightly in his direction since July amid signs that Sen. John F. Kerry has been nicked by attacks on his service in Vietnam, a Times poll has found.

For the first time this year in a Times survey, Bush led Kerry in the presidential race, drawing 49% among registered voters, compared with 46% for the Democrat. In a Times poll just before the Democratic convention last month, Kerry held a 2-percentage-point advantage over Bush.
This poll probably understates the bad news for Kerry. It is a "registered voters" poll which generally overstates Democrat support to begin with. LA Times polls have recently been found to also over sample Democrat voters.

What is most interesting is that the Dem talking point that the Swiftvet ads would backfire on President Bush has been shown to be so much whistling while walking through the grave yard. Also the attempts by mainstream media like the LA Times to denigrate wht the Swiftvets are saying appears not to be working. Democrats have to be very disappointed in the failure of their response to the Swiftvets. It probably will not make them respond to the specifics of the charges , thought. If they had a good response to the specifics, we would have heard it by now.
