Well, you'll have to go to the link to see it, but when you do, please let me know what the problem is you see with that 'likely' vs 'registered' number.
They're practicing gluteus protectus. Don't want to have reality bite them in the tuchus on Tuesday. now it's in the margin of error, so no matter what happens, they're right.

This can't possibly be true. The leftstream media said it was double digits, 13 to 15 points or more and pubbies chances were non-existant.

The key points here are that: (1) the numbers and public sentiment are probably still moving toward the GOP, with the clock running; and (2), that the GOP has produced gains before even when it was trailing on the generic ballot question.
I think they overinflated the real numbers to discourage GOP turnout. That didn't happen so now they're publishing what they say are the *real* trend figures. I'd describe them as "fake but accurate." No one knows what voter turnout is going to be like on Tuesday. But the notion there is this Blue Wave out there waiting to bury the GOP is wishful thinking. The Drive Bys have been playing fast and loose with the polls that they should be taken with a grain of salt. That's why this observer believes they're still lying.

Well .. it's a funny thing about pollsters. Suddenly - when push comes to shove, the real numbers finally begin to show up. Maybe it's because they want to keep some credibility.
