According to the latest ARG polls:

Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry gained ground at President George W. Bush’s expense in polls taken in Florida, New Jersey, Iowa, New Mexico and New Hampshire after last week’s presidential debate.

Kerry has a 2 percentage point edge in Florida and the candidates are tied in New Hampshire, two states that were among those Bush won in 2000, according to the American Research Group.

In New Mexico and New Jersey, Kerry leads by 3 percentage points, within the error margin, according to polls. Bush and Kerry are tied in Iowa. The three states backed the Democratic nominee in 2000.
