Barrage of poll numbers creates confusion in presidential race

According to recent North Carolina polls, Republican Mitt Romney is: Winning 30 percent of the African-American vote in opening up a 10-point lead over President Barack Obama; Getting just 8 percent of the black vote and trailing Obama; Leading Obama by a whopping 18 percentage points. Or not. They’re all part of the barrage of poll numbers – some accurate, some not – that are attempting to keep score on the 2012 election. They’re as much a part of modern politics as TV ads and bumper stickers.
