  •  The tracker is not showing a tie... (4+ / 0-)

    Maybe time to amend the title of this diary?

    Change will not come if we wait for some other person or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.

    •  Umm yeah this diary is misleading (5+ / 0-)

      Actually reading the Gallup article, they basically pulled 3 days out of their 7 day poll, which merely reflects where things were in the Gallup poll on those 3 days.  But the actual poll released shows Obama up by 3.

      What this diary should have been about is why did Gallup pull 3 days out of a 7 day poll to highlight?!  Narrative anyone?!

      Or this diary could have been about Obama the comeback kid.  "Look, the race tied after what I feel was a bad debate, but look how he turned it around in the 3 days following and look, he leads by 3."

      Very misleading diary once I dug a little more into the substance.  Can we stop with the razzle dazzle?!

        There are several mis-statements in this diary, and by the diarist in the comments.  The one that really bothered me was where he says he took the liberty of changing Nate's "50-50 chances if the election were held today," to having Nate say Mitt would win.  This goes beyond concern, and straight into TRYING to depress enthusiasm and pull down those who still have PLENTY of momentum to re-elect the president.
