And the Pew Research Center released a poll showing Bush with a ten-point lead among Catholics.
This kind of fundamental change is driven by the chasm that currently divides the parties on defense policy and social issues, which dwarfs in significance the President’s smoothness, or lack thereof, in the first “debate.”
