How about this for a reason: The electorate increasingly is nonwhite. And nonwhites, including Hispanics, overwhelmingly vote Democrat. Immigration reform now!

The same pollsters missed the pending landslide prior to the 2010 elections and that is why I fail to believe them now.

Bingo! At this point in 2010, we were being told there was no way the Tea Party was having any effect, other than comvincing those good, smart, better than anyone else democrats to really go show the Tea Party who was running this country now. We know how that blood bath turned out.

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...
