    because they point out in their poll that they set the bar at "Certain Voters,"  which is a much higher bar than is "Likely Voters." By setting the bar at "Certain Voter" they are able to knock out 17% of registered voters; reducing Obama's lead from 6 points to 1 point; making it a close race when it is not. Of course, The Washington Post thinks they will sell more newspapers if people think it's a close race. Thank God for coincidence.

    The definition of INSANITY: Voting Republican over and over and over and expecting the economy to get better.
