    This is a low-turnout summer primary.  I could understand you seeing these are poor numbers for her if this was a general election write-in or a primary with bigger names in it, but quite frankly, I'm shocked that she's polling ahead of Kerry at all.

    In a primary of this type, people are turning out largely to specifically vote for someone.  Kerry doesn't have any base being new to politics.  I think if a write-in is going to work at all, it work during an August primary.  You couple this with groups actually spending money to bury Kerry, and I wouldn't at all be surprised to see him lose.

    This has been a very unusual primary to say the very least.
