Down nine--and proud of it
|Phil Angelides' campaign is touting a poll by Rasmussen that shows him trailing Arnold Schwarzenegger by nine points, 49-40.|
That's a pretty big deficit weeks from Election Day. But Angelides is promoting the poll. "The latest poll in the California Governor’s race shows the race tightening as the campaign enters the final three weeks," wrote spokesman Nick Papas.
The Angelides camp quotes Schwarzenegger strategist Matt Dowd praising Rasmussen as an accurate pollster.
You know things are going poorly when down by nine is noteworthy.
