Coverage of Polls

Posted By Elgin Hushbeck

One of the things I have always found interesting in this stage of Presidential campaigns is how when the democrat is ahead in the polls we hear about the polls all the time, but when the Republican is gaining, or ahead in the polls, suddenly the polls don’t seem to be all that news worthy any more.

A few weeks ago Kerry was ahead in the polls and it seemed that every night in there was reports about Kerry’s lead. But then suddenly Bush began his campaign and Kerry had a few bad weeks, and news about polls virtually disappeared. From side comments I have heard and reports on talk radio the Polls now show that Bush is now tied with Kerry or ahead, depending on the polls.

No doubt as the campaigns go up and down (i.e. Kerry regains a lead) prominent coverage of the polls will return
