Kerry Closes To Within 1% In Today’s Zogby Tracking Poll

by Steve

After trailing Bush by 3% yesterday, 49%-46% in his daily tracking poll, Zogby reports this morning that Kerry has knocked 2% off in one day, and now trails only by 1%, 48%-47%.

The poll of 1203 likely voters was taken Sunday through Tuesday.

"Today was a big day for Kerry," pollster John Zogby said.

Kerry has consolidated his base support just as Bush did early in the race, taking a 2-to-1 lead among Hispanics, 90 percent of blacks, 84 percent of Democrats, 55 percent of union voters and 65 percent of singles.

Only 4 percent of likely voters remain undecided.

At this stage of the 2000 election, Bush led Democrat Al Gore by 5 points in the daily tracking poll.

I have a simple question after seeing this: how can there be 16% Democrats and nearly half of the union households supporting Bush after the last four years?
