Compare and contrast: Will Lester, AP, Kerry's choice of Edwards received favorably by public, but doesn't change the race and Newseek's latest poll showing Kerry 51%, Bush 45% (Kerry 47%, Bush 43%, Nader 3% in a 3-way race).
Of course these are not necessarily inconsistent: Kerry's bounce could be independent of Edwards.
It all seems to be consistent, as I read it – the bounce, if any, is pretty small, a few points at most.
“But those looking for a Kerry surge in the polls after he chose Edwards on Tuesday saw a shift of a few points, often within a poll’s margin of error.”
Probably had more to do with Whoopi. How much longer will the dems hide that speech, and Kerry’s reaction, from the public?
