A new Harris poll has mind-blowing results: 51 percent of Americans, despite everything we know now still believe Saddam had weapons of mass destruction. The poll also found that half of Americans continue to believe evidence showing Iraq's support for al-Qaida has been found. (It has not.)

Even if the color code has not changed, America is on high alert, according to an Associated Press poll. Half of Americans believe the terrorists are winning the war on terror. Two-thirds say it's likely terrorists will strike before the November election. And a third said it was likely there would be an attack at one of the political conventions this summer.

Kerry is slipping in Pennsylvania according to a Quinnipiac poll. President Bush leads 4539 percent among Pennsylvania voters, with 8 percent for independent candidate Ralph Nader. (Those of you writing us emails that Nader will never get that many votes in November can now hit send.)
