It really is a simple prediction to make. The liberals (elected, media and blogger) have so over-played the whole Cheney shooting debace that it will backfire on them just like the Paul Wellstone funeral.
TIME is trumpeting as loudly as they can that Cheney is at 29 points. But the poll has some even more valuable data to my prediction:
7-in-10 (69%) Say Shooting Incident Has Had ‘No Effect’ on Their Overall Opinion of the Vice President; About One-Fourth (24%) Say it Has Had a ‘More Negative’ Effect
So 93% of the people who responded either had no opion change or they went negative. So when the bump happens it will be indisputable the the bumb came from the over-coverage and not the event.
Wait for it.
