New Jersey and Bush: Perfect Together?
While some polls show John Kerry pulling away from George W. Bush in New Jersey, others, like the Quinnipiac poll, show the president only three points behind. And not even the state's Democratic co-chair is predicting Kerry to win by as large a margin as Al Gore or Bill Clinton did (16 points and 18 points respectively). So why is Bush so close in the Garden State? Some say it is 9/11 and after. Others point to an accumulation of political scandals. It's probably a combination of both. My recent article in The Weekly Standard breaks it down.
