Gimleteye: Within the margin of error?
"Within the margin of error" is a term used to describe wriggle-room in analyses of races and candidates by pollsters. There is a little more than a month to the November election, but an enormous volume of television, radio, and political advertisements to come, fueled by big corporations and polluters hiding by curtains of anonymity. The margin of error by pollsters is far more fragile than the decision by the US Supreme Court called Citizens United.
