USAT: Unnamed Dem Congressional candidate's lead over GOP narrows to 2%?
WEREN'T WE LEADING BY DOUBLE DIGITS???

USA Today: Bush rating best in six months
Posted 8/21/2006
By Susan Page and David Jackson, USA TODAY

....A USA TODAY/Gallup Poll taken Friday through Sunday put Bush's approval rating at 42%, the highest in six months. His approval rating on handling terrorism was 55%, the highest in more than a year....

Support for an unnamed Democratic congressional candidate over a Republican one has narrowed to 2 percentage points. For the past year, Democrats have led by much wider margins....

1. They gotta start building their cover story
for when the Diebold machines blow the Dems out of the water in November.

First they convince us that the Puggies have regained the lead.

Then they kill the exit polls so there is no independent check on the claimed squeaker Puggy victories everywhere.

5. In regard to polls
I always wonder what the context is of the questions asked. Most of the time they only post the totals.
