Kerry Up by 7 in Michigan

John Kerry leads George Bush 50-43 percent among Michigan RV's, with 1 percent for Nader and 6 percent neither/unsure, according to a CNN/USA Today/Gallup Poll conducted Sept. 10-13.


Michigan might have been tossup once, but I actually think it's a bit Dem-leaning these days. If you look at the county data, there's been huge desertion from the Republicans in the lower penninsular counties, and Detroit has, if anything, become even more Democrat than it was in the 60s.

Unfortunately, the same poll shows Bush up by 5 in Wisconsin....Would someone remind Kerry to pronounce "Lambeau" correctly or else he'll loose every remaining football fan in that policy-blind but sports-crazy state. T.J.

Kerry will win Wisconsin unless the Pope endorses Bush.


Please elaborate. WI going Bushward worries me because it used to be rather progressive for the Midwest.

The Catholic vote is an issue.

We need it, and I think we will do OK, unless some Church flak is stirred up over abortion. Apparently killing people is OK, but supporting abortion is SIN in capital letters.
