Rural Voters Give Dems Edge

Greenberg Quinlan Rosner's e-alert brings this good news about Dem inroads into one of the GOP's more supportive constituencies:

Rural voters deliver a narrow plurality to a generic Democratic candidate for President: 46 - 43 percent. In contrast, President Bush won the rural vote in 2004 by 19 points. At the Congressional level, voters prefer Democrats in named trial heats 46 - 44 percent.
