    Having polls showing a close race will probably encourage more Democrats (and Republicans, but whatever) to get out and vote.  And encourage more volunteers to work harder on the GOTV efforts.

    The greater the percentage of the eligible electorate votes, the greater the likelihood that the Democrat will win.

    So, the reportage may be, as usual, reality-challenged.

    But in this rare case, that may be to the Democrats' advantage.

    But don't tell the media, or their corporate bosses.  Let them keep working on our behalf.

    In Washington, whenever anyone does something wrong, everyone else gets punished.
