Good news from Survey USA

Over the past two months, during which the DNC and RNC have both concluded, Kerry has cut into Bush's lead by two. At the end of July, SurveyUSA was polling Kerry-Edwards at 44. In August, 45. In September, 46. In the meantime, Bush has dropped one point.

Meanwhile, Burr has lost two points while Bowles continues his strong lead.

And more interestingly, in the past month (during which time the SEANC political action committee made the ... bold... move of falling for Ballantine's empty promises and endorsing a Republican for the first time in history), Easley has doubled his lead. With only 2 percent undecided (lower than the other races polled), Easley has moved well above 50 percent and Ballantine has dropped five points.

Good call, SEANC.

The interesting thing about the SEANC-Ballantine saga is that he's said that he'll provide those pay raises by cutting the bureaucracy of state government--or more precisely, by firing state employees.

So, tell me...what exactly is 5 percent of 0?

Don't forget. SurveyUSA isn't a great polling firm. They are fully automated. I'll stick out the questions for a poll when I'm talking to a real person, but talking to a computer? Nah...
