More Voter Feedback


I'm a Wisconsin voter and agree with your Wisconsin reader's assessment. I observed the same lack of enthusiasm for Kerry among Kerry voters. Those I talked to last night seemed to be motivated by a need to follow the pack and unite behind an
electable candidate. Edwards voters, in contrast, seemed to me to be much better informed and voted for Edwards because they like him, agree with him and think he can beat Bush. They struck me as leaders of opinion, not followers. Thus, if follower-type voters in other states get the sense that Edwards now has the momentum, Kerry could be in real trouble.
