Kerry barely beats Bush in Washington Post poll

Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) leads President Bush by 4 percentage points but has larger support for domestic issues, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

In a three-way match, Kerry's lead is cut by independent Ralph Nader, who draws 3 percent of support. In a two-way match, Kerry's advantage grows to 9 percent.

While Bush enjoys 50 percent support, a majority of Americans -- 57 percent -- say they want to see the country go in a different direction. Bush leads Kerry on the war on terrorism but trails, largely in some cases on domestic issues including health care, the deficit, Social Security and education.
