Some earlier discussion somewhere.

A CNN commentator reporting earlier today on Obama's current "favorabity
rating" drew attention to the "demise in the Democratic numbers."

Since Obama's popularity is reported at 52%, down from the last time, the
word clearly means "decline."

Bonus: Contrast "left-wing" CNN's house-style "Democratic Party" with "fair
and balanced" Fox's "Democrat Party."
