If you remember, Kerry led Bush, Gore led Bush, Dukakis led Bush Sr, Mondale led Reagan and Carter led Reagan, I point this out for two reasons:
First, Clinton was not included since there were three candidates for President in 1992 and 1996, and Clinton was selected as a minority president based on actual votes cast.
Second, it shows the actual media bias in polling numbers, Dukakis with an 18 point lead coming out of convention and not being able to close the deal? Same with Kerry, Mondale, Gore and Carter, they had erectile convention disfunction, they had presumed rock hard leads over oppenents coming out of conventions and watched their sizable leads shrink in the face of actual performance.
Is Obama firm enough in his support to win an election as a frontrunner?
This country's been led by rich white men for over 200 yrs. If it ain't broke don't fix it.
