End of the Reagan Bounce?

The newest poll by ABC News reports that in a two man race, Kerry leads Bush 53% to 45%. There is another interesting trend in this poll that has been less widely noted on other political sites. George W. Bush's advantage on the issue of Terrorism has been eliminated by John Kerry. In an a poll from April on Iraq and the Election, ABC found that voters trusted Bush over Kerry when it came to terrorism by a 52% margin (74 to 22). In the latest poll, Kerry now enjoys a percent lead. This change is especially important, since a key component of the President's strategy was to knock Kerry on national security. It seems now that this strategy has failed completely, despite the best efforts of the Bush Campaign.
