For the first time this cycle, the national media seems to have realized that national polls don't paint an accurage picture of where the election stands today, and that yes, indeed, President Barack Obama maintains an advantage in the battleground states. It's certainly a point I've been flogging with regularity.
NBC's recent numbers helped set the narrative:
In the poll, the president leads his presumptive challenger by three points among registered voters, 47 to 44 percent, which is within the survey’s margin of error [...]
Among swing-state respondents in the poll – those living in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin – Obama leads Romney, 50 to 42 percent.
