I realize it is CBS but you think they would at least have an accurate headline to go with their new poll. The headline reads: “CBS Poll: Giuliani Maintains Strength.” You have to read well into the story and flip over to RealClearPolitics to get the previous poll to figure out that in fact Giuliani increased his lead over Thompson by 12 pts. (from 8 to 20 pts) since the last poll. He also increased over McCain by 8 pts. (from 18 to 26 pts). As for Romney he is fourth in the current poll as he was last time and we finally found a candidate over whom Giuliani “maintained” his lead –25 pts. in both the current and previous poll. You’d think someone might think it significant if the frontrunner increased his lead so substantially against a contender who was having some problems transitioning to a full time campaign. You know, there might be a political news story somewhere in there.
CORRECTION: Romney is now in 3rd in the CBS poll by 1 pt.
