Horse race 8/22/04
Since my morning post on Rasmussen's Electoral College projections, they've released a new projection that places a lot of Kerry's states into the "toss-up" column. Their latest projections are Kerry 203, Bush 183, and Toss-up 152. (Rasmussen considers any lead of less than 5% a "toss-up.")
Of course, I was expecting something like this (or worse) with the Republican Convention, but it seems a little early to pin this shift on the convention. I suspect this is more the result of the "sliming" by the Swift Boat Veterans for "Truth."
