Bush, Kerry Tied in Race for U.S. Presidency, New Poll Shows
U.S. President George W. Bush and his Democratic challenger John Kerry are in a statistical tie, according to the first poll of likely voters taken during the Republican National Convention.

Bush and Kerry each got 47 percent in an American Research Group Inc. poll of likely voters taken during the first three days of the Republican National Convention. Independent candidate Ralph Nader got 3 percent. The poll's margin of error is 3.5 percentage points. Five percent of likely voters said they were undecided, the poll said.

The Manchester, New Hampshire-based polling firm conducted 1,014 telephone interviews of registered voters Aug. 30-Sept. 1., the first three days of the convention.
Remember when the right-wingers were all over the mini-bounce Kerry got from his convention. Well, going into the campaign, Bush was ahead in most polls:

Well, it's a little early, but this seems to represent an actual net loss. In other words, an anti-bounce. Why? Because Kerry is rubber (or as in the Disney movie - Flubber) and Bush is glue? Well, I suppose there could be something to that. But I think the real reason is that Bush is a flubber - and not in a good way. The GOP convention is a train-wreck.
