GOP Memos: Undecideds could abandon Bush

Published July 15, 2004 10:44PM (EDT)

Two memos compiled by Republican polling firm Fabrizio McLaughlin and Associates suggests that President Bush stands a strong chance to lose support from key undecided voters as the campaigns move from trading pre-convention snipes to waging all out political war in the coming months. According to the Fabrizio poll, undecideds are significantly more pessimistic about the state of the country and the future than other respondents. Plus, they favor a more active government a la John Kerry. But don't take Fabrizio's polling data as polling gospel; polling organizations that hire themselves out to political or business interests aren't always reliable.
