CNN not convinced by its own poll results

The latest CNN/Gallup poll shows President Bush leading among likely voters John Kerry at 52% to 44%, well beyond the 4% margin of error. Even better, 53% of registered voters prefer the president while only 42% intend to vote for Kerry.

CNN plays hide the poll results and sneaks this gem into the middle of the article:

The poll also showed Bush's job approval rating at 54 percent -- the highest since January -- and it found increased public approval for the president's handling of the economy, terrorism, the situation in Iraq and foreign affairs.

Despite this evidence, CNN is just not convinced that more Americans support President Bush and titles its article: "Bush apparently leads Kerry in pre-debate poll." Apparently? If CNN can't trust its own poll results, whose can it trust? And for that matter, who can trust CNN?
