    Yes, I read all about how the Los Angeles Times,,1,5888238.story?coll=la-headlines-nation shows Kerry leading by seven points in the national race. Their poll also reports that adding Nader to the mix actually increases Kerry's lead by one point. Does that make sense to you? It should -- if you read the LA Times on a regular basis.

    Here's the LA Times poll less than four weeks before the California recall election last October:,6195198.story?coll=la-news-times_poll-state

    California voters are almost evenly split on whether to recall Gov. Gray Davis, and Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante retains a narrow lead over Arnold Schwarzenegger in the tightening race for a successor, according to a new Los Angeles Times poll.
    Likely voters in the Oct. 7 election support the ouster of Davis by 50% to 47%, with just 3% undecided, the poll found. The result, a statistical tossup, is virtually unchanged from an August Times poll. ...

    More volatile than the referendum on Davis is the contest for a replacement. Bustamante, the only well-known Democrat in the race, leads with 30%, followed by two Republicans: Schwarzenegger with 25% and state Sen. Tom McClintock of Thousand Oaks with 18%.

    Davis lost the recall election by 10 points, and Schwarzenegger beat Bustamante by 16 points. If I were John Kerry, I would take very little comfort in this poll.
