NRO headline:

Even After Sandy, Race in a Virtual Tie

Ok, let’s see what the lexicon says about “virtual”:

almost or nearly as described, but not completely or according to strict definition : the virtual absence of border controls.
Computing not physically existing as such but made by software to appear to do so : a virtual computer. See also virtual reality .
Physics denoting particles or interactions with extremely short lifetimes and (owing to the uncertainty principle) indefinitely great energies, postulated as intermediates in some processes.

Yeah, I’d say Obama and Romney are in a “virtual tie”.

The substance of the article - well, there isn’t really any, which isn’t surprising. One could almost call it a “virtual article”.
