    unless R$ vomits all over himself the M$M will say he won so the race will tighten.

    people change the channel when one team is too far ahead, so it is in the interest of the media to keep people thinking the race is close

      I've seen on tv the last week. It's changed from Romney bumbling to questions about Obama, which suggests to me that the media is priming for a horse race/Romney rises story, and that tells me the spin afterwards will be a net positive for Romney.
