re:"But none of these beliefs are good journalistic practice." No offense Hugh, but you're the worst person in the world to be judging journalistic practice. Remember when you predicted a Santorum victory the night he lost by double digits? Or when you predicted a McCain victory in the days before the 2008 election? Or when you wrote Painting the Map Red before one of the biggest routs in republican history? This latest pollster thing you're on shows you're incapable of learning from your mistakes. It's a trait that's largely shared by your party and one of the main reasons President Obama will be reelected.

Only morons would mistake Hewitt for a journalist. He said Victor Davis Hanson is "America's pre-eminent military historian." You don't say things like that if you expect to be taken seriously.

Then there was his interview with Romney. After Hewitt talked about how Obama wasn't being asked tough questions, he asked Romney about Obama not seeming to take the threat of Russia seriously like Romney did. Very funny.

Nice projection pal! It's Obama who refuses to comprehend that he's flushing America into the toilet and that this fact is becoming increasingly obvious by the day. When the indies weigh in, it will be adios for Obama's presidency.

After a few weeks spent tracking down and questioning pollsters and the reporters of polls, I can assure the reader that pollsters are the modern-day alchemists. They promise to turn numbers into predictive gold. We'd all like to believe these magical powers exist, but we shouldn't. The pollsters of 2012 just don't know who is going to win in November any more than did the pollsters of 1980 know that Ronald Reagan was headed towards a landslide in that late-breaking year.

I'd like to believe Scott Rasmussen that the race between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama is tied. Democrats...
