Democrats Republicans Urge Supporters to Use Absentee Ballots in Florida

Gallup poll aside, every other poll this week gives John Kerry around a 6-point lead.

Thought for the day. If you were on the Republican re-election committee, and you were now trailing by more than the margin-of-error, wouldn’t you want to make sure that the voting process was done right since Democrat voters outnumber their opponents in most states? Funny, up to now, the Repubs didn’t seem to be worried about the Diebold voting machines, since their maker said he would do everything in his power to make sure Mr. Bush wins.

But lo and behold, reports out of Florida show that state Republican leaders are ignoring George & Jeb and are sending out flyers encouraging their supporters to vote by absentee ballot, something the Dems have been encouaging for awhile in many states. It seems that the Diebold machines are so screwed up, they can’t guarantee a Bush victory after all…
