No promises, but this may well be my last post devoted to polling before the ultimate poll is taken and tabulated tomorrow. These surveys are the crack cocaine of politics, and we're all going to need to detox on Wednesday. And with that, voila: Gallup's final pre-election poll has fallen in line with virtually every other national poll, showing Romney ahead by a mere point, 49/48. The bad news for Republicans is that this lead is diminished from the GOP ticket's five point edge prior to Gallup suspending its polling due to the storm. The good news is that...

So, how did the Foxnews koolaid taste? You know where you all went wrong with you analyses? You incorrectly accepted the theory that being Democratic or Republican is a demographic from which you can determine the extent of poll bias. Party affiliation is not a demographic that you can use to judge the balance of those surveyed, it's a feeling not a demographic. Race, age, ethnicity, sex, etc. are demographics. Where in the world did you base you belief as fact that the electorate cannot contain more dems? On election day that's exactly what we saw, more people are registered Democrats than Republicans. Can't hide from data, but that's exactly what you all did. People aren't going to go to the polls against somebody, only for somebody.
