Don't Cry for Jeb Just Yet-The Democrats are making hay about Bill McBride pulling within 49-43 of Governor Bush in a recent poll. It's more likely that McBride is basking in a post-primary high added to by his largely high-road approach to the election snafus and the drawn-out counting process. We saw the same thing in Texas where Ron Kirk got a big poll bounce after he came through a primary and a run-off, getting oodles of free publicity while Cornyn got none running essentially unopposed on the GOP side. Once the general election campaign commences, Kirk's numbers came back down, and McBride's numbers will likely fall as well.
