Gallup: Romney: 52 Obama: 45 – Phoenix CBS Affiliate KPHO Control Room Glitch: Obama: 43 Romney: 40 UPDATE: ABC Affiliate in OH Posts Similar Results

First the good news - Gallup has it 52 – 45 for Romney among likely voters:

These results are for likely voters, who are the respondents Gallup deems most likely to vote based on their responses to a series of questions asking about current voting intentions, thought given to the election, and past voting behavior. Each seven-day rolling average is based on telephone interviews with approximately 2,700 likely voters; margin of error is ±2 percentage points.

Axelrod must be having a cow.

Now for the oh – so predictable newsroom bias story, brought to you by PJ Tatler’s Stephen Kruiser:

UPDATE:

Okay, this is just weird…

The same thing happened at an ABC affiliate in Cleveland Cincinnati, Ohio, with similar results O: 46 R: 39.

It hasn’t been a good weekend for the President.  The NBC/WSJ poll, released earlier today, shows the race tied at 47 percent.  As NBC’s Chuck Todd told David Gregory, “Sitting at 47 is a good number for a challenger, not a good number for an incumbent.”  The latest Gallup pollhas Romney up 7 points, 52-45.  NRO hears that the latest attempt by the President’s team to check Romney’s momentum will come via a years-old video in which Romney sounds more conciliatory toward the PRC. Romney, of course, will be portrayed as a flip-flopper.  It will be another instance of “Romnesia.”

Our understanding is that the Obama campaign is  working closely with media outlets to broadcast the video below, part of a 2007 talk Romney delivered in Pittsburgh:
