JOHN KERRY stormed into the home stretch of the US presidential election after voters declared him the winner of the third and final head-to-head debate with President Bush.
Both candidates hurried through battleground states yesterday as the neck-and-neck race entered its final, frantic 18 days.
“Now it’s a sprint to the finish,” said Mr Bush yesterday morning during a visit to the back of Air Force One to tell reporters how buoyed he was after the debate. This was seen as an indication of how much his campaign team feels that he needs to reach out to regain momentum.
Polls show the contest deadlocked and analysts predicted that it would go to the wire. Frank Luntz, a pollster, said there were no undecided voters left, only those reluctant to commit to either man because of traits they disliked in both.
“The electorate has already decided what they think. We just don’t know who has won,” he said. Source.
