The Polls That Ate the Presidential Contest

There is empirical evidence of a Romney trend...the crowds are turning out in DROVES. Obama has NO positive trends to support their tired canards about "turning the corner/moving in the right direction." My gawd, they brayed about 2010 being the "summer of recovery," and that was over 2 years ago! Get out and vote, and encourage your friends to vote as well. I am 61; this is EASILY the most important election of my lifetime. America CANNOT AFFORD 4 more years of this slouching toward Big Guvment socialism, high unemployment, and fiscal irresponsibility, and loss of respect! The Hopey-Changey mirage now demands a REAL CHANGE! Take pride again in American Exceptionalism! Please vote ROMNEY/RYAN for America!
"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....
