The Polls That Ate the Presidential Contest

I fought hard against Romney in the primaries , and did not think he would be much of a candidate. I was wrong I'll be heading to the polls to vote for him in a few minutes even though my state will most likely go for obama

I've warmed up to him somewhat myself. I was trying to explain to my 12yo girl how a responsible person doesn't just "like" or "dislike" a candidate without learning about them and what they stand for. Too bad way too many "voters" simply cast a ballot on feelings.
"I don't know," a very wise and skeptical Washington political analyst confided to me on Sunday as I limned the Romney victory I foresee. "I'd like to believe it," she said, "but I have to overlook a lot. If you're right, then a whole lotta state polls have to be wrong."

Very true. But I'll climb all the way out onto a limb and assert that the state polls are wrong -- or at least misleading.

Every four years we complain that the press covers the presidential contest as a horse race. This year sets some sort of new standard....
