Voters Uneasy About Kerry Ability In Crisis

A new poll suggests some voters may be uneasy about Democrat John Kerry's ability to handle an international crisis and want to learn more about his plans for the future.

The latest CBS New York Times poll has President Bush leading Kerry 50 percent to 41 percent. Independent Ralph Nader had three percent support.

The CBS Times poll found that voters are uneasy about Kerry's abilities in an international crisis by 60 percent to 32 percent. And a majority say Kerry is spending too much time talking about the past and think he's spending more time attacking Bush than explaining what he would do.

The poll reflected the views of nearly eleven-hundred registered voters interviewed this week.

Polls in the last week have ranged from a close presidential race to a 14-point Bush advantage.
