Is there a universe in which Mitt Romney is ahead in the polls and appears to be zeroing in on clinching a win?
Politico's Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns write this morning there is:
On TV, talk radio and especially the Internet is a place where the swing-state polls that show Romney losing are not just inaccurate but part of an intentional plot by the heretofore unknown media-pollster axis to depress Republican voters. In this other world, Romney not only isn’t losing — he’s on the verge of a convincing victory.
"This is an extension of the ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ approach that we now have for news," Mike Allen told us this morning. "The people go to places that reflect what they think the news should be, and as a result, they’re feeling the same way about polls."
