    Error in margins 

    One of these pollsters has to have its margin wrong. Take your pick.

    The Gallup Poll finds that President Bush has built a substantial lead over challenger John Kerry, 55 to 42 percent.

    At the same time, the Pew Reseaerch Center for the People & the Press comes up with the same leader but the president's margin is only one percent, 47-46.

    In either case, President Bush isn't like to become overconfident since four years he trailed Al Gore by 10 points in early October and won. (Well, sort of.) His opponent this time is a acknowledged fast closer.

    ``Sen. Kerry is like Seabiscuit,'' Donna Brazile, Gore's campaign manager told USA Today. ``He runs better from behind.''
