Closer to second place

Ace of Spades has an excellent dissection of a Miami Herald poll story. The headline talks about Democratic Kendrick Meek surging in the latest poll. The reality is he's getting close to independent Charlie Crist.
Both are being beaten like a drum by Marco Rubio.
The MFM are so eager to designate Meek the candidate with momentum, they're helping out Rubio. None of which would be an issue, if the author hadn't attempted the momentum spin "Meek advances uphill against Rubio, Crist; the tide is turning!" While technically true, so is this: "Meek still trails Rubio by 17 points; he's going to lose."
