KERRY GORED. Evidently Al Gore's attacks on the President are not helping John Kerry in Mr. Gore's home state of Tennessee. Polls show the President ahead in Tennessee by 16 points today.
The poll also showed the people of Tennessee believe the President would do a better job handling the war in Iraq, handling terrorism and homeland security, and the the economy
Mr. Kerry's best showing was on the economy, where he trailed the President by 8 points.
This might be expected, as Mr. Gore did not carry his homestate against the President, either. Mr. Kerry might prefer that Mr. Gore go on vacation. But, it might not help. I suspect that Mr. Kerry is just too liberal for Tennessee.
