The Polls That Ate the Presidential Contest

i have come to believe that polls have become a tool of the cable networks to boost viewership. By having polls showing a close race, television analysts can get television ratings and keep people glued to their televisions. Everyone loves a horse race. If they were reporting a blowout election, no one would care or watch.
"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....
