More good Bush bounce news. It seems that Bush is making New York a state up for grabs. Before the RNC in NYC, Kerry was ahead of Bush 53-35. Today, it's Kerry 47 Bush 41. Bush is within 7 percentage points of taking New York from Kerry. What is going on here? First California is within 10 percentage points and now NY is within 7. Both massively Democratic states, yet Bush is gaining. If Bush could take either one, Kerry wouldn't have a chance in hell of winning. I'm afraid we're going to see Kerry just explode during the debates coming up. Remember Gore's constant eye rolls and sighing? That cost him the election. I think Kerry's just going to lose it and start screaming. How great would that be. But, this is a double edge sword for me. Being the eternal pessimist, I expect the worst and hope for the best. I can't allow myself to begin to believe that Bush could win in Nov. If I do, I could be setting myself up for a huge depression like I did in '96 when Dole lost to Clinton. I still think that there's just enough pissed off Dems to carry Kerry to the White House, but I'm also beginning to think Bush could actually take it. I don't know.
