Not many people noticed, but this week Reuters ran a very interesting headline with their latest poll showing President Obama ahead by 6 points: Obama Expands Lead on Romney, Voters More Optimistic.
What? They're talking optimism? Everyone knows that voters are stressed and terrified about the economy. Republicans have been doing everything they can to make sure of that over the last 4 years. And goddess knows its important to keep that pessimism up if we're going to tell people this is a close election.
Someone go tell those folks over at Reuters to get their story straight.
