    They are quoting Dem donors on the record. It is not a puff piece.

      They're not making stuff up, but they are only interested in feeding their narrative.

      But with their party weighted down by an unpopular president and his even more unpopular health care law, many Democrats are worried about the election. And their anxiety is most pronounced about the Senate.
      Note that both Obama and the healthcare law have rebounded since their lows in November. But that doesn't suit their narrative, so they write based on "accepted wisdom".

      I put as much faith in the third sentence of that paragraph as I do in the first. It's better than true, it's truthy.
