For Reuters, John Whitesides reports on this morning’s new Zogby poll:
Kerry and Bush were deadlocked at 48 percent in the latest three-day national tracking poll, which included one day of polling taken after the airing of a videotape from Osama bin Laden (news – web sites). Kerry led Bush 47-46 percent on Saturday.
Only 2 percent of voters remain undecided as Bush and Kerry scour about 10 remaining battleground states to find the 270 electoral votes they need to win on Tuesday.
“Each man has consolidated his own base,” pollster John Zogby said.
“Bush has good leads in the red states, among investors, and among Republicans, born-again Christians, men and married voters,” he said. “Kerry has a solid lead in the blue states and trumps Bush among young voters, African Americans, Hispanics, Democrats, women, union voters and singles.”
