PRE-SPIN Here's a Bush operative--as quoted by Rich Lowry of The National Review--clearly working to pre-spin the next round of polls:
If you understand the dynamic of this race, you know nobody is going to put this race away. It was already tightening and is going to continue to tighten. The trend line is toward an even race.
Trending toward even, eh?

It'll be a few days before any useful hard data is available. But the fact that Bushies are content to portray the race as dead-even is unquestionably a good sign for Democrats.
