A little help from the facts
Keith Urbahn does a good job of explaining why the Bush bounce may not be a temporary thing. All he forgets to point out is that, while Bush has a 52% to 46% lead among likely voters, the press seems to say that he only has around a 49% to 46% lead. Why is that? Because they don't report polls of likely voters, but usually just registered voters.

As I mentioned before, this controls the revelation of public opinion, and in turn the public's reaction to such things. But read Keith's piece, because he makes some really good observations.
