Australia - A recent poll taken shows that if an election were to be held the Labor Party would soundly defeat the Conservative Party led by John Howard. The polls also shows a lack of support for the war in Iraq.
United States - The race for the highest office in the land is getting closer and closer. Recent polls show the two candidates are in a dead heat. The attacks from each party continue, Mr. Bush saying Mr. Kerry is weak on defense and Mr. Kerry saying Mr. Bush is only for the wealthy. The war continues to be a thorn in Mr. Bush's side and with the recent photographs of the mis-treatment of Iraqi prisoners, the American public apears to be losing confidence in Mr. Bush.
United States - Al Gore, former Vice President is calling for resignations of cabinet members in Mr. Bush's current cabinet. He remarks came out over the recent reports of abuse at the Iraqi and Afganistani prisons.
