Sen. John Kerry would defeat President Bush if the election were held today, according to a new Newsweek poll. Kerry leads Bush 49-46 in the poll of 1,006 adults, which was taken after the Massachussetts senator's Iowa win and Bush's State of the Union address. The poll also showed Kerry leading among Democrats nationally with 30 percent, John Edwards behind him at 13 percent, and Howard Dean and Wesley Clark tied at 12 percent. And 52 percent of respondents said they don't want to see Bush re-elected.
