You seem to be cherry picking your polls Larry
read it and weep Larry K.

The USA today Poll puts Kerry at 50-46 with a very small sample of 763 voters

The NewsWeek Poll puts Kerry ahead 49-42

and there is some very good news for Kerry in the USATODAY poll,

Views of Kerry's personal characteristics and leadership improved; views of Bush didn't change much. Bush's edge in handling terrorism was shaved to 12 points from 18. In a switch, Kerry now is trusted more to handle the responsibilities of commander in chief, by 51%-46%.

Kerry's military service is seen as a plus. A 52% majority says it would help him be an effective president. More than one in four say it makes them more likely to vote for him.
