Are differences in lenses only seen at 100%?

I'd have to say that comparison is rigged, Craig. The polarizer helps to increase the color saturation and the contrast, so it improves the perception of sharpness. Without an 18-200 shot with polarizer, it's impossible to say whether the 24-70 is visibly better in a downsized image.

I'm not saying the 18-200 is "just as good" as the 24-70, of course. Just that, for small screen-sized images, the difference between the two is a lot less than this particular comparison would seem to imply.
