1. THIS is the full 7-day

that they have normally reported all along and there are many pundits being fooled by the "tie", which was just a 3-day subset that Gallup released and blasted everywhere.

I wish these media would stop being so damn lazy and stop just spouting whatever is fed them on the teleprompter.

6. Your head is spinning because THEY are spinning it.

They want to compare apples and oranges. The 3-day is a good look at pre- and post- debate effect but for the media to spin the 3-day report to insinuate that the debate torpedoed Obama because of the delta (change) from their regular report (that they won't underscore), which is a 7-day report, is a disgrace.

And so we will see which report the media decides to continue to focus on the rest of today because this one (which is what they normally look at) blows their spin out of the water.

4. My guess is that Gallup knew these numbers last night

They knew it was Obama 50 and rMoney 45.

So this morning they blast out a 3-day average taken at the height of Romney's recent bounce to they can try and set the narrative while sweeping the actually tracking poll under the rug.

Slimy little fuckers.

5. Still too close

We need a wide enough margin to overcome all of their dirty tricks at the ballot box.
