    is not "small but significant" lead anymore.  I'd say it's "substantial but not large."

    Yes, Santa Claus, there is a Virginia. And it's going Democratic.

      to call it a lead. it's a lead in R2K, Gallup and Rasmussen but not Hotline.

      between margin of error and twice that, it's a slight lead.

      less than MoE and it's a lead within MoE, a close race, too close to call (but not a dead heat. I hate "statistical tie").

      Today it's just at the edges.
