Obviously, it would be hard to call the current state of the race “good news” for Democrats. I get that. There’s a lot of ground to make up.
But, Buono’s being down 37 points today is 5 points better than last week’s 42. And, among women voters, she’s 15 points closer than last week’s poll. Whether that’s baby steps, real progress or just a rounding error remains to be seen. What I do know is: it’s headed in the right direction.
