Newsweek Poll Mirrors Time Poll

In a body blow to the Kerry campaign, the AP reports that Newsweek will shortly announce the results of their polling from the end of the week, and that they have the same results as the Time poll released yesterday -- Bush up by 11 points over Kerry:

Newsweek, Sept. 2-3, 1,008 RV, MoE +/-3 (Results from late July Newsweek poll in parentheses)

Three-way race:

George W. Bush-Dick Cheney 52 percent (42)
John Kerry-John Edwards, 41 percent (49)
Ralph Nader-Peter Camejo, 3 percent (3)
Unsure, 4 percent (6)

Two-way race:

George W. Bush, 54 percent (44)
John Kerry, 43 percent (52)
Unsure, 3 percent (4)

Since their last poll in July, Newsweek finds that a nineteen-point swing has occurred in the presidential race. Kerry had led by eight points in the two-way race and seven in the three-way race. Now Kerry trails by eleven in both models, a tremendous erosion of support in a mere five weeks. If you're looking for the definition of meltdown, this is it.
