| Rasmussen: Kerry, Bush Dead Even
On the opening day of the 2004 Democratic National Convention, polling outfit Rasmussen Reports finds that President Bush and Sen. John Kerry, the presumptive Democratic nominee, are locked in a tie. Both have the support of 46 percent of Americans polled, Rasmussen said. The survey also breaks down the Bush-Kerry race on the top issues:
Voters are evenly divided between Bush and Kerry when it comes to the economy. They still retain a slight preference for Bush on national defense issues, but the President’s advantage on that issue is now the smallest it has been all year.
Gallup, in its own polling, says it has found Kerry leads in Ohio, Bush leads in Florida and the two seem tied in Missouri.

Now you can comment. (Click here should you choose to sign out.)
As you post your comment, please mind our simple comment policy: we welcome all perspectives, but require that comments be both civil and respectful. We also ask that you avoid the extensive use of profanity, racist terms (neither of which we consider civil or respectful), and other boorish language.
We reserve the right to delete any comment, and to prohibit you from commenting on this site, if we feel you have broached this policy. As a courtesy, we will first send you an email noting a violation so you understand the boundaries. This will occur only once, however, and should we ban you from our comment forums we expect that ban to be permanent.
We also will frown upon those who suggest that we ban other individuals for voicing unpopular opinions, should those opinions be voiced in a civil and respectful manner. The point of our comment threads is to provide a forum for spirited though civil and respectful discourse … it is not to provide a forum in which everyone will agree with your point of view.
If you can live by these rules, welcome aboard. If not, then we’re sorry it didn’t work out, and thanks for visiting The Command Post.
