Kerry Edging Out Bush In FL?
MSNBC attributes a recent six point boost in Kerry's Florida rating to the convention.
Democratic Sen. John Kerry has taken a slight lead over President Bush in Florida, the essential swing state in the 2000 election, according to a poll out Thursday.
Kerry and his running mate, Sen. John Edwards, had the backing of 47 percent in the poll by Quinnipiac University of Hamden, Conn. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney had the support of 41 percent, and independent Ralph Nader and his running mate, Peter Camejo, had 4 percent.
Bush and Kerry were deadlocked in Florida at 43 percent each in a Quinnipiac poll in late June.
