This is interesting:
The presidential campaign of Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry received some startling news Wednesday from his own back yard.
A poll recently conducted by the research institute Mass Insight shows Kerry trailing President Bush in the race for president in the Bay State.
The poll, which involved 500 Massachusetts voters at the end of April, shows the president with a 6 percentage point lead — the exact numbers have not been released.
This stands in stark contrast to a similar poll taken by the group in January. Back then, Kerry had a commanding 16 point lead in Massachusetts in a theoretical matchup with the president.
The obvious Democrat response is ‘remember Bush in 1991.’ That is true, but if I wanted to run a marathon, I would prefer to start 6 minutes ahead of the pack over 6 minutes behind the pack, if you know what I mean.
