If the election were held today, Shrub would draw 45% of the vote in California, and any crappy Democrat would draw 40%, with the rest undecided. What sounds like it should be rotten news for Shrub (a war bounce and no opponent and he still can't pull a majority?) is turned into "...would win the country's most populous state if the next vote were held today, according to a poll released on Wednesday."
That's right. He got a whopping 3% war bounce in California, and the press somehow hands Shrub about 56 electoral votes.
You couldn't come up with a conclusion that stupid if you tried.
