Republican Worries

It is becoming clear that the Republicans are increasingly worried about next Tuesday's election. A quick perusal of the Corner will show that this once confident group are beginning to grasp at straws. Jonah Goldberg is clinging to the "our voters are underrepresented in the polls because they are embarrassed to admit they are voting for Bush" theory.

And yesterday, the Corner host bit hook line and sinker into the obviously bogus Bush campaign "internal polling numbers." It is a sign of the nervousness of the Bush camp that they are leaking numbers like those at this point; the campaign is worried that their voters will see the trends for Kerry and become discouraged by Tuesday.

It is still a close race, and something could swing it for Bush, but absent something that changes the dynamic, the White House will beginning packing up on Wednesday.
