http://people-press.org/reports/display.php3?ReportID=232

..."conducted Oct. 27-30, finds Bush with a three-point edge (48% to 45% for Kerry); Ralph Nader draws 1%, and 6% are undecided. "...

..."Bush registers a higher percentage of strong supporters in the final weekend of the campaign than any candidate since former President Ronald Reagan in 1984. Fully 39% of likely voters support Bush strongly, while 9% back him only moderately.

Roughly three-in-ten likely voters say they support Kerry strongly (32%), and 13% back him moderately, a pattern more typical of recent presidential candidates."...

6% are undecided


That Guardian study I quoted at the beginning of last week suggests that the majority of the "undecideds" will vote for Kerry.

If you missed it in the Pew article, Pew comments on the undecided:

..."final survey suggests that the remaining undecided vote may break only slightly in Kerry's favor.

When both turnout and the probable decisions of undecided voters are taken into account in Pew's final estimate, Bush holds a slight 51%-48% margin."...

..."The potential still exists for changes in voter opinion and, equally important, in the composition of the electorate on Nov. 2.

While 6% of likely voters are undecided, another 8% still leave open the possibility of changing their vote.

In that regard, neither campaign has a clear advantage in reaching potential supporters."...
