Bush Shows Dramatic Gains in Arizona

Wednesday, 08 September 2004 12:00 AM

The Democrats' convention gave Kerry no "bounce" in his overall rating against Bush, but showed small gains in confidence in how he would handle homeland security and the war in Iraq.

Those gains were more than erased in the latest poll. Bush emerged with 2-1 support on war and defense.

Domestic issues such as the economy, health care and education had been Kerry's strong suits in the earlier polls, but Bush outscored him, sometimes widely, in six of seven categories.

The poll also indicated that if Vice President Dick Cheney and Sen. John Edwards were running for president instead of the No. 2 spots, Edwards would score 39 percent, one point higher than Kerry, while Cheney would have the support of just 44 percent, 10 points below Bush. Seventeen percent said they didn't know how they would vote.
