Released late Monday afternoon, the new Pew Poll does show a swing to Mitt, who among ‘likely voters’ had a 4 pt. edge, 49-45. That was opposite Gallup this morning which had PBO in front 50-45. The late day Pew headlines mostly failed to inform that among registered voters the two tickets are even, at 46 apiece. This last nugget of info makes clear how important turnout will be to the results in November.
Clearly, there are more undecided voters than before, too. Meanwhile, all journos and bloggers and politicos are waiting for new state polls from Ohio. Will post here if I can.
All of the above does show the president’s lost some ground, but maybe not as much as first glance could suggest. The Biden-Ryan debate Thursday is going to be v. important.
