New York Times: Exactly two weeks before Election Day, new poll has race in a dead heat. Voters have strong reservations about re-electing Bush but still see Kerry as an "untrustworthy" politician.

AFP: Florida, also a dead heat, becomes focus of race as both candidates campaign there and early voting begins.


Reuters: Al Gore gives last of speeches in two-year series, charges Bush with governing from a "love of power" and right-wing ideology rather than religious beliefs. "It is love of power for its own sake that is the original sin of this presidency," he said.

CBS News: Pat Buchanan opposes the war in Iraq and the ballooning deficit under Bush, but endorses him anyway. Says a Kerry win would ignite a civil war in the GOP between neoconservatives and conservatives.

Washington Post: Who's winning the voter registration war? Hard to tell, but a Post study shows the parties are basically even in five important states -- Florida, Colorado, Nevada, New Hampshire and New Mexico -- and Democrats have made lopsided gains in Pennsylvania and Iowa.
