    this site is supposed to be committed to electing good democrats as it's number one commitment and that should always trump everything.

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

      In physics, the term observer effect refers to changes that the act of observation will make on the phenomenon being observed. This is often the result of instruments that, by necessity, alter the state of what they measure in some manner. A commonplace example is checking the pressure in an automobile tire; this is difficult to do without letting out some of the air, thus changing the pressure. This effect can be observed in many domains of physics.
      I wouldn't worry too much. The narrative will be on whatever happened during the second debate soon enough.

      when is the next Pew poll coming out?  If that shows a sharp swing back, then PPP won't seem as harsh -- more like a delayed rebound.
