Even a dead cat will bounce if thrown from a sufficiently high roof...
The selection of John Edwards as John Kerry's running mate was supposed to put North Carolina in play for the Democrats, or at the very least, cause President Bush to have to spend more time and resources to secure the state. But if the latest USA Today/CNN/Gallup poll is to be believed, the Bush-Cheney campaign still has quite the advantage in the state. In a two-way race, Bush-Cheney leads Kerry-Edwards 51%-44% among registered voters, and 56%-41% among likely voters. When Nader is thrown into the mix, the margin among registered voters becomes 49%-43%-4% favoring Bush-Cheney, and 54%-39%-4% among likely voters favoring the incumbents.
