Bush is favored by twenty-five points over Massachusetts Senator John Kerry (35%-10%) among undecided likely voters when Libertarian, Constitution and Green Party presidential candidates are factored into the 2004 presidential race, according to a new Zogby/Williams Identity poll.

The interactive poll of 19,033 likely voters, which included 501 undecided likely voters and those most likely to change their minds, was conducted from Wednesday through Tuesday (August 11-24, 2004) by the Zogby/Williams Institute. Overall results have a margin of sampling error of +/0.7. Margin of error for undecided voters is +/- 4.5.

Republican-George W. Bush 35

Democrat -John Kerry 10

Libertarian-Michael Badnarik 8

Independent-Ralph Nader 4

Constitution-Michael Peroutka 4

Green-David Cobb .2

Undecided 38

Keep in mind that all Zogby polls are suspect at this point.

Yeah is this more of Zogby's special sauce? No way there's a dead heat in the ABC/Washington Post poll out today if Bush has a whopping lead among "undecideds." The only conclusion is either Zogby's internals are wrong or the latter is wrong and Bush has a big lead among ALL voters nationwide.

I have not interest in pimping BS polls, even when they favor my guy.

Let me be amongst the first to say.....GREAT NEWS!

It has always puzzled me why so much hate could be directed towards such a loving, caring, humble man.

But many in this world hate that spirit.

I don't trust this either. Perhaps Zogby is trying to stir up the Dems to "rock the vote." It just doesn't pass the smell test.

His interactive poll surveyed 19,000 people and only 500 odd people were still undecided 2 months out from the election? That's less than 3% of the survey population. Think maybe Zogby has a big self-selection problem in who's participating in his interactive polls.

The pollsters ain't seen nuttin' yet! I predict Bush will win in one of the biggest landslides in history. From here on out, Kerry will get a daily b*tch slapping.

I don't trust Zogby as far as I can throw John Kerry. Zogby is an Arab. His polls always favor part of the DNC structure, though I am not sure exactly how. His polls always come out in the end for the libs. I have taken them online for years, and this coming from Zogby at this time says they regognize a big lift for Bush after the convention. Bush's numbers are up now before everything starts. Zogby shows Bush higher now so noone can suggest a really big lift for the President from the Convention.

If W has gained 25%(holy camels)of the undecided wouldn't precentage plus his regualr numbers completely blow sKerry outta the water? The undecided are the holy grail of this election...according to the mediaWHORES, so in that case W should have a sizable lead of 15 to 20pts against LURCH..right?!

What an odd poll. I find the "likeability" numbers significant, because I think a large number of voters end up pulling the lever for the candidate they "like," even if they don't necessarily approve of his policies.
