The DEWDROPs that go for George
Fact or artefact? The latest ABC tracking poll identifies a facially amazing demo: the liberal Dems who plan to vote for Bush.
The numbers: 36% of the sample were Dems, of which 30% stated themselves to be liberal, of which 5% are currently nestling in the Bush column. Supposing 120 million voters on November 2, that would make around 650,000 of these aberrants casting a ballot for Bush - assuming they hadn't had second thoughts.
I'm not following the registration hi-jinks: but my recollection is that this is not unadjacent to the total that ACT and the like have added to the rolls.
Has this demo been focus-grouped to explore exactly what Bush is doing right to get their vote?
