Too close to call

The US Presidential election is exceptionally close. A poll this morning put Bush 2% ahead of Kerry. But that ignores the electoral college system. Florida (27 votes) will most likely decide it.

Nader has 2% of the vote in Florida and 1.6% overall. He will, therefore, decide the election (as he did in 2000). Well done to the Republican strategist who thought him up.

After three consecutive defeats on TV, Bush should be dead and buried. Instead he's on course to win. Never underestimate the power of the media.
