As noted previously, as of the convention Kerry wasn’t doing any better against Bush among veterans than Gore had done four years ago. That seems to have changed in the weekend CBS News poll:
While President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney held a 47 percent to 41 percent lead among vets in mid-July, the tickets are now in a statistical tie: Kerry-Edwards with 48 percent, and Bush-Cheney with 47 percent.
Thanks to the Carpetbagger for the pointer; he has some useful thoughts of his own.
