Update: Just in to the Tatler, a CNN poll update: Custer lost at Little Big Horn “narrowly.”

Also, Pickett’s charge failed, but it was a close run thing. And the Buffalo Bills lost those Super Bowls to the Dallas Cowboys by a whisker.

Update: The Hill’s coverage. Click to enlarge. Note the subheadline.

Update: Just in from CNN and The Hill: Walter Mondale loses to Ronald Reagan, narrowly.
