For the last twelve out of thirteen days, Kerry has been ahead of Bush in the Rasmussen poll. As late as yesterday, it was 45-48. Today, it is back to tied.

Is part of the ABB crowd headed back to Bush? Waaayyyy to early to tell. But, I think it might happen.

For those of you just tuning in, this is my new working theory. Kaus has his “panic time” theory. I have my ABB theory.

In short, I believe a number of the “Anybody But Bush” crowd just wants reasurance from Bush that he isn’t a crazed religious zealot. If they get that in the next month they will return home and the race will cease being neck and neck.

I do not think the country is as divided as the pundits would have us believe. I think the country is just nervous.

  • This is true. I also think it is because critics such as Joe Wilson have been discredited and people are finally waking up to that fact.

    Since Kerry didn’t get any bounce after his convention, I really don’t see him gaining any ground down the road. I do think that most people in the ABB camp weren’t snowed by all of the fakery going on at the DNC.
