Poll Porn

Obama up by 11. Greg writes:

And 59% say Obama shares their values, versus only 47% for McCain. So McCain's efforts to paint Obama as culturally out of touch, allied with shadowy figures, including terrorists, and different from you and me in a vaguely sinister way just may be proving to be a bust.

Still it isn't a bust with the media, who still treat Obama as "the Other." I think overall Obama has gotten better coverage than Gore or Kerry, except for that 45 day period in which cable news became the Reverend Wright channel, but they still lap up every RNC storyline that's given to them. I mean, Peter Beinart, what the fuck?
