A Few Thoughts on the Skewed Polls

Two questions for any wealthy conservative activitists for future campaigns. 1. Why not buy or build some of these polling outfits to counter the oversampled MSM polls. For instance, if they are showing a +9 D turnout from 2008, why not base your polls off of the 2010 turnout which favored Republicans. If anything, this would cause the left to scream, and neutralize the discussion that the polls really don't mean a thing. 2. To counter the assault of the left-leaning MSM, can Sheldon Adelson or some billionaire by majority share in some of the major networks (NBC, ABC, CBS) and fire those not practicing real journalism. Just like in basketball, it's hard to win when the other team has a 6th man.

You can't be perfectly unbiased, but you can measure on-air statements, stories covered, etc and publish your metrics. This could be a real money maker!

While we are at it, somebody should buy the New York Times and clean house.

Taken together, the polls purporting to predict a fairly easy Obama victory have the purported effect of enspiriting Obama supporters, and depressing Romney supporters -- presumably leading to heightened turnout among the former, reduced turnout among the latter.  But as the MSM celebrates the supposed Obama leads with an air of "this...
