At this point, I am saying "screw the polls." We have been misled, misinformed by misguided polls for over a year now, enough. My personal evaluation of how this election is going, based on reports of independents breaking solidly for Romney, the enthusiasm gap, Romney's advantage on the economy not to mention Obama's actual record leaves me with this conclusion going into tomorrow. "2010 and Chick-fil-A, Romney will win on election day."

The pollsters have their own agenda, entirely unrelated to reporting ACTUAL data.

I made my point, that was all.

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...
