Obama ahead of Romney in NBC/WSJ poll (49-43)

Still too early for polls to be meaningful, but what the heck?

Notice how NBC writes the headline and buries the good news about Obama way down in the story. In fact, the whole story is so negative, you'd think somehow both Romney and obama are going to lose the election.

Moreover, I have never before heard of six points being within the margin of error. I think maybe it means Obama's increase over the prior poll is within the margin of error.

In any event, the author of the article, Mark Murray, seems downright desperate to avoid saying this is good for Obama.

Oh, I saw on the Google that Rush Limbaugh is saying Democrats were oversampled. I'm sure Rush is an expert on oversampling.
