Upward Bound

Rand Corporation has taken a novel, error-free approach to polling the presidential campaign: survey the same 3,500 people every month. The group was evenly split between Romney and Obama, but since Bill Clinton's convention speech, the president has been gaining the edge and now has a seven-point lead, according to Rand's latest survey.
