Bad News for Kerry

A recent Poll in Pennsylvania shows that Kerry's support there is weaker than Gores.

"Kerry had the backing of 45 percent of Pennsylvania voters and Bush 44 percent in the state narrowly (by 5 points) won by Democrat Al Gore in 2000. Pennsylvania has 21 electoral votes."

With the independent candidate Nader involved, Bush has 44 percent, Kerry has 40 percent and Nader has 5 percent in the poll by the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

Nader is not on the ballot yet, and even if he does get on the ballot I doubt he will get 5%, but it does demonstrate that Kerry may have to trend left to get those votes.
