As the election draws near, a Newsweek poll shows President Bush moving ahead of John Kerry in the popular vote. The poll showing a 50-44 percent lead for Bush had last week showed the race to be tied. A ABC news poll showed the race still tied.

In the battleground states, campaign workers for both sides are still at work. What I found interesting is that the article indicated that the Kerry workers were paid, and the Bush workers were for the most part volunteers. If true what does this say about the convictions of the Kerry supporters. He has to shell out $$$ to get people to campaign for him :shk:



APPLETON, Wis. - As President Bush and John Kerry crisscrossed Midwest battleground states Saturday, a new poll showed the incumbent moving ahead of the Massachusetts senator in the popular vote, and Democrats said their private surveys also hinted at momentum for the president.


A Newsweek poll showed Bush ahead of Kerry 50-44 percent. A week ago, the same survey had the race tied. The president briefly opened a small lead in an ABC poll, but it had vanished by Saturday night.

Throughout the battlegrounds, Kerry's mostly paid army of organizers was pitted against Bush's largely volunteer-driven team to get supporters to the polls Tuesday. It's too late for some: Early voting mushroomed this year and, in Florida alone, nearly 2 million voters have already cast ballots
Bush and Kerry

Apparently, the Republicans also pay people to conduct voter registration:

Post Gazette

GOP-paid firm faces voter-fraud charge


BTW, did you see this item in the Washington Times story?
Nine percent of registered voters and six percent of likely voters say they have not yet decided who they will vote for.

The election is only days away!
How could that many people still be undecided?

I have heard that Kerry saved his money, and is spending it now. Whereas the Bush team spent thier money earlier, and are kind of scrambling. That's what they're saying on the Sunday talk shows. If that's true, maybe Kerry is paying them because he can and Bush is using volunteers because he has to.
