    If the polls say Obama 52, Romney 44, they would say it's virtually tied with a MOE of +-  9 points.  If the polls said Obama 49, Romney 48 with a MOE of +- 3, they would be trumpeting about how Romney is overtaking Obama.

    •  but isn't "Obama makes a comeback" a narrative? (1+ / 0-)

      And a good one at that! My guess is what's happening is that they can't get a democrat to go on an air and say "Obama is pulling ahead where it counts." Democrats want low-propensity voters scared and consequently excited to vote.

      For some reason, though, Republicans are lining up to call this election a win for Romney.
