Tell the whole story.
In this sampling, Democrats were +9 (36 to 27) which is about what the actual sampling was in the 2008 election. In the 2010 midterm election, the actual split was Democrats 36, Republicans 37. As always, the real results are about turnout and which side do you think is more committed this election?
The very first thing I learned in a Statistics class in college is that it's very easy to make the results look however you want them to look.
