Election comments II

I don't think that Kerry's issues resonated with voters who were not already going to vote for him.

Claiming that the economy was in terrible shape when it is not didn't work; perhaps Kerry was lulled by liberal media claims into believing that a 5.4% unemployment rate in a Republican administration was terrible although the same 5.4% unemployment rate under Clinton was considered to be favorable to the President.

As far as Iraq is concerned, it really does not have a large impact on the day-to-day lives of most Americans. Perhaps the super-negative coverage got readers of the liberal newspapers excited but, again, these folks were already in Kerry's base. The families of men and women in the service are mostly red-states and supported Bush by a wide margin. Perhaps the handful or so of service personnel and/or families supporting Kerry found by the liberal media led Kerry and his handlers to believe there were many more.
