Did you have a hard time finding the results of yesterday’s Zogby poll that showed me within 9 points of Janet Napolitano? Me too. Someone finally pointed out where it was — buried next to the obituaries on page B-9, as the second, shorter item of a “Campaign 2006″ tidbit column.
The day before two polls were released. One showed me down by 18 points. The other claimed I was down by 36! Guess which poll got front-page coverage, including a major story with large graphics? The poll that showed me way behind was massively promoted, while the one that shows me gaining rapidly and within striking distance got buried in the obituary section.
How is a local poll worthy of major front-page news coverage, but a respected national poll from Zogby gets mostly ignored?
Maybe someone should ask the Republic.
