By the Numbers

I think the [poll] results have yet to fully show the Spin Factor. Since Friday morning’s newspapers, each side has been spinning the results to make their guy look better than he did in the actual debate. The Kerry Camp had better material to work with, so their spin will probably work better. The Bush Camp, less so. Again, the polls take three days to completely reflect any changes, so keep a close eye on Rasmussen the next two-three days.

Today, Rasmussen calls it Bush, 47.9% to Kerry’s 47.0%. That’s tight, and confirms the general trend we’ve seen the last five days.
