    A lot of talk is being made about the veracity of these two polls. It has been proved that both polls were conducted in overwhelmingly Republican areas. So the question has to be posed......

    Did Newsweek and Time cook the books to make it look like Bush is WAY ahead so that when more accurate polls are taken, it will look like he is LOSING ground on Kerry therefore giving Kerry the momentum he needs.....

    Just a thought I heard proffered by Monica Crowley on the radio.....

    Gallup came out with a poll that said Bush +7. So they may be a bit out of whack but they are not totally unsubstantiated.

    I did an un-official poll here in springfield,tn. I drove around and counted yards signs[as I was garage/yard sale'ing] I have the count as follows...kerry yard signs=16. prez G.W. yard signs=103. and I thought Tenn was a democrat haven.

    Was out riding the bike today (southeast - east central AL). The only kerry sign I saw was being planted by some hayseed who looked like he attended family reunions to get a date. I gave him an enthusiastic thumbs down as I cruised by. I think he flipped me off. Oh well, it probably wouldn't have done any good to get into a lengthy debate with him anyway.

    Look at the negatives for Kerry and support for Bush:
