What's going on here?

Josh Marshall:

As Iíve noted in some earlier posts, the big question Iím trying to get a handle on (and Iím sure Iím not the only one) is just why Kerry is surging right now. Not just in Iowa, but in New Hampshire too --- which is really the bigger question in my mind.


[Dick] Bennettís ["the guy who runs the ARG daily tracking poll "] theory is that this whole race is about who can beat Bush, and that candidates like Kerry --- until quite recently --- have been completely missing the boat by talking about their plan for the environment, or their plan for this, or their plan for that.

What people care about is who can beat Bush. Beat Bush, they reason, and everything else will fall into place. So who cares what your plan is.
