Numerous polls show Democratic front-runner John Kerry running ahead of Bush. A recent Gallup survey had a seven-point margin.

When the 562 likely voters were asked for their choice from a Bush v. Kerry race, 53 percent of those picked Kerry, and 46 percent favored Bush.

What’s behind the president’s troubles?

White House advisers cite a lackluster State of the Union address — which they say failed to elevate the president’s agenda above the Democrats’ — and a series of setbacks, some self-inflicted, like a poor response to the report from weapons inspector David Kay, criticism over the budget and the deficit, and even new questions about Bush’s military record.

Look out Bush, John Kerry is coming...
