Fearless Spin

Say what you will about Dan Gerstein, but he’s a pro.

Here’s what he told us a little while ago about the state of the race:

“It’s an unfortunate reality in political journalism today that polls are a big driver of coverage and there is just no denying the gap we are facing in the polls. The good news is that most people aren’t paying attention.”

And here’s what he said about the significance of the upcoming debate:

“In my view this is like opening night of the campaign. This is the first time of the two of these guys are side by side. If you discount the meeting in Mineola.”

“There is a lot of pressure here for [Spitzer] to nip this in the bud.”
