The state of the 2004 campaign
No doubt, the campaign staff from the non-Dean candidates in the field have probably had a lousy summer, what with the governor from Vermont sucking up all of the media attention. Right now, the Kerry staffers in New Hampshire have the greatest cause to feel blue about Dean's surge. To some, it might seem like the campaign is already over.
However, the CBS poll that was released yesterday might offer some comfort to them:
So cheer up, Kucinich voters -- your candidate may have the charisma of a stale waffle and the economic proposals of a recycled Benito Mussolini, but in terms of poll numbers, there's nowhere else to go but up!!
Coupla days ago I found myself explaining the state of the Dem's presidential ambitions to a friend of mine's wife, who isn't, by any stretch, a George Bush fan. Nor is she unusually disconnected from current events. Nonetheless, she had no idea who the Democratic hopefuls were, much less that there were nine of them. She had heard some of the names, once I told her, but she knew scratch about them.
She'll probably end up voting for whoever the D's field, but it can't be good for the Democrats that she didn't even know there was a contentious primary campaign ongoing.posted by: Twn on 09.01.03 at 10:09 AM [permalink]
