John Heilemann on Morning Joe: Breaking Down the Pre-Debate Polls

Discussing a new NBC-Wall Street Journal poll showing President Obama and Mitt Romney dead even at 47 percent among likely voters (that’s up two points for Romney and down three for Obama since last month’s data), New York’s own John Heilemann had this to say: “47 percent’s a great number for a challenger a couple weeks out, 47 percent’s not a great number for an incumbent president.
