Absolutely President Obama has a slight edge at this point in time.
But for anybody to take these numbers and saw the election's over is a misreading of what we're saying.
In each of the last two elections between October 1 and Election Day.
The results of -- at about three points so we're not sure that we'll continue this time around her which direction it will shift.
