Reuters: Obama’s ‘Narrow Edge’ Is Actually a ‘Comfortable Margin’
This is what is known as “burying the lede,” as Reuters casually tosses off a note that Barack Obama is headed for a landslide electoral victory in an article titled: Obama Holds Narrow Edge Two Weeks Ahead of Election.
Obama maintains a larger advantage in the state-by-state battle that will determine the outcome of the election. Ipsos projects that Obama holds an edge in the most hotly contested states, including Florida, Virginia and Ohio, and is likely to win by a relatively comfortable margin of 332 electoral votes to 206 electoral votes.
332 to 206 doesn’t really fit my definition of a “narrow edge.”
