WASHINGTON (AFP) - As the convention-time boost enjoyed by President George W. Bush (news - web sites) began to wane, he and rival John Kerry (news - web sites) were again running neck and neck less than two months ahead of the November 2 election.

According to the latest Harris Interactive poll posted on The Wall Street Journal's website Thursday, Kerry secured 48 percent of the intended vote, compared with 47 percent for Bush.

Independent candidate Ralph Nader (news - web sites) garnered two percent of the hypothetical vote.

A slim majority of respondents (51 percent) said they do not believe Bush "deserves to be re-elected for another four years," compared with 45 percent who said they do, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Bush had enjoyed a slight lead of up to 11 points over Kerry in recent polls, as his party held its national convention in New York at the beginning of the month and as Kerry's records in Congress and Vietnam came under sustained attack.

The survey was the first by Harris Interactive since August, when Bush and Kerry each garnered 47 percent of the intended vote.

The September 9-13 poll of 1,018 adults has a three-percentage-point margin of error.

So what's the deal? I thought W was kicking sKerrys azz!

those polls don't mean much, take them all with a grain of salt and get out and vote for your candidate in November.
