    Polls: President Bush takes the lead for the first time in LA Times survey 

    Even before the Republican National Convention begins, President George W. Bush has seized the national lead in the presidential race, according to a Los Angeles Times survey.

    The reason, The Times concludes, is that Democrat John Kerry has been hurt by attacks on his Vietnam service, a central point of Kerry's campaign.

    This evidence differs from the opinion of John Edwards, Democratic vice president nominee. During a rally in Warren, Edwards attempted to make the point that the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth ads were hurting Bush, because his supporters are paying for them.

    Contrary to Edwards' belief, the L.A. Times found that 49 percent of registered voters favor the president compared with 46 percent for Kerry. This is the first time Bush has led in a Times survey. Before the Democratic National Convention a month ago, Kerry led by 2 percent.
