    Note the massive bump for Kerry after the first debate.

    Bush 55% - Kerry 42%

    I remember that day vividly. Time, Newsweek, USA Today/Gallup, CBS, and ABC were horrific for Kerry, post-swiftboating/Republican convention. Kerry had to wait until September 30 for the the first debate. And you see the shift right there after he won the debate, 49% - 49%.
