Zogby Daily Tracking Poll Still Has Bush Ahead By Four

After yesterday's interesting Zogby poll results showing a post-debate Bush bounce, I was curious as to whether that would prove anomalous, a one-day polling outlier from a pollster known for such results. So far, however, their polling shows Bush maintaining his four-point lead over Kerry, demonstrating that the final debate damaged Kerry despite the pundit spin afterwards:

Three days after the final presidential debate, President Bush retains his four-point lead over Senator John Kerry, according to a new Reuters/Zogby daily tracking poll. The telephone poll of 1211 likely voters was conducted from Wednesday through Friday (October 13-15, 2004). The margin of error is +/- 2.9 percentage points.

Pollster John Zogby: Bush led by 4 today [Oct. 15th] -- the first full day sample after the debate. Kerry gets 81% of support among Democrats while Bush gets 14%, but Bush gets 92% among Republican to Kerry's 5%-- and, of course, the two are tied among Independents and also Catholics."

Today's tracking comprises an average of polling results from three days, two of which now are post-debate but mostly pre-Mary Cheney fallout. While the Kerry campaign tries to play defense regarding Kerry's debate remarks and Elizabeth Edwards' post-debate "shame" comment, the polls likely will wind up moving even farther towards Bush.
