I have to say, you're basically right. It seems both parties celebrate or dismiss polls depending on what those polls show. But I think the point of the article is that polls - for what they're worth (key phrase) - are showing changes.

Say hello to the IBD/TIPP tracking poll:

- Romney: 48.7 percent - Obama: 43.7 percent

- Romney’s lead widened to 5 points from 2 points...

- Romney’s edge among independents widened to 20 points from 18 just a day before.

- Obama’s lead among women narrowed from 10 points to 8 points.

- Romney also continues to make inroads among middle-class voters, moving from a 6-point lead to a 10-point lead.

- The current data include only polls taken after Romney’s resounding debate win over Obama on Oct. 3.
