hit it: morrrrrre...than the greatest polls the worrrrrld has known...

we heart misleading headlines! cbs tells us "more think the 'surge' is helping!"

and, sure enough, if you read the cbs news/nytimes poll results, yes, a full 6% more of people asked do indeed say they think the surge is working (up from a mere 29% to a staggering 35%! be still, our beating hearts)!

however, if you continue to look, you'll see that the percentage of people who think the surge has made things worse is also up: from 12% to 15%. granted, it's half as big a swing as the folks who do think it's working. however, it is still, technically, "more."

but wait, there's "more": the percentage of people who don't think it's going one way or the other, is also up: from 45% to 46%. yes, more!

and if you want to get all numeric on our asses here, the biggest percentage of people asked think that the surge is having no impact. in other words, more people think it's having no impact than think it's helping or hurting. more!

and, we didn't want to point this out, but that 35% that think the surge is working? d'ya think they might be related to the number of people who think awol is doing a good job?
