The liberal cocoon – Mickey Kaus notes that the NY Times story on their own poll can’t hide their panic. For example, why is the headline “Kerry trails Bush by 8% among registered voters” instead of “Bush leads Kerry by 9% among likely voters”? And so on.

The New York Times also tried to lessen the impact of the poll's finding that President Bush was ahead by 9 percent by burying this paragraph 15 paragraphs into the article:

Over all, the Times/CBS Poll found that Mr. Bush had the support of 50 percent of registered voters, compared with 42 percent for Mr. Kerry. Among those who said they were likely to vote, Mr. Bush led 51 percent to 42 percent. When Ralph Nader was included, Mr. Bush led by 50 percent to 41 percent among registered voters, with Mr. Nader drawing 3 percent.
