Bush vs Kerry: Technical Breakout?

Today, Gary answers an interesting reader question about chart analysis and the election:
“Have you tried to apply charting techniques to election poll results to predict election results?”
GBS  responds:
“Well, not until today. But, here’s my take which looks to give Kerry the edge!”
Note that Gary supports the incumbent.
Readers of this blog know I do not put much stock into the thinly traded Iowa futures or tradesports. But GBS raises an interesting issue: Is it the raw numbers, or the trend that matters most?
