Political ViceSquad (hat tip to Betsy Newmark) has a cogent analysis if , as they characterize it, the latest "Newsweak poll". Powerline also addresses the spin:

"Back on September 11th (good time for a political poll, huh?), NewsWeak belched out a set of data that was based on the following partisan breakdown:

R = 39 percent
D = 30 percent
I = 27 percent
Not stated = 4 percent

D = 36 percent
I = 27 percent
Not stated = 3 percent
