    Emphasis mine.

    Yes, it's only one state's poll, and yes, it's a snapshot in time, but Ohio is a quite accurate predictor of presidential winners.

    Now if Kerry will only capitalize on this by coming out fighting. My biggest criticism of him is that he seems to be running a rather lethargic campaign.

    He will carry Alabama. Count on that. A democrat hasn't carried Alabama in God knows how long.

    Voltron, what is your margin of error on those numbers? They really can't be interpreted without a margin of error...

    Since Carter in '76 (although he almost won in 1980.) If Kerry has to carry Alabama he is in serious trouble. In almost every serious scenario I've seen almost no southern states (except Florida) are up for grabs. That could change depending on who Kerry picks as his running mate, but really if he is to win he has to keep the states Gore won and add one or two others - Ohio would do it. And yes, skunk, if the "poodle" is jettisoned I think this gets a lot easier.
