The Left Knows How Far Obama Has Fallen
Well, the Washington Post has a new story on their latest poll, and do you know what’s interesting about this Washington Post story on the latest poll? It’s that you have to read a long way into the story to find out what the poll says, and you can probably ascertain the reason for that. It ain’t good for Obama. The headline in this story from the Washington Post… It’s actually the ABC News/Washington Post poll, so this is actually an ABC story: “Enthusiasm Rises for Romney Ahead of Debate,” by Gary Langer.

But a persistent sense he’d favor the wealthy, combined with easing discontent with the nation’s direction, provide a retort for President Obama, raising the stakes for their second” debate tomorrow night. You ought to see here how far down you have to read to get to any numbers in a story on a poll.
In fact, this ABC article puts up two sets of good numbers for Obama before they even get around to reporting the most important numbers on who’s ahead if the vote were held today. And even then, the horse race number is presented in a highly confusing way. Here’s the deal. This is what I’m paid for. I went through this. I weaved my way through all the BS in this story.
