California is in play! New Field Poll indicates Obama could Lose in CA

The Sacramento Bee reports the results here but misleads with the following:

Though Obama is strongly favored to win California in his re-election bid next year, the poll suggests many Democrats may vote for him only begrudgingly…

The actual Field poll has a margin of error of up to 4.6%, and states the following:

The current proportion approving of his performance (46%) is now only slightly greater than the proportion disapproving (44%), a big change from three months ago when Californians approved of the job he was doing 54% to 37%. In addition, those who are inclined to reelect Obama outnumber those not inclined by just five points (49% to 44%).

I.E., "just five points" NOT "strongly favored" as the Bee reported.
