The Polls That Ate the Presidential Contest

Paul Ryan's votes for Medicare Part D and the bailouts in 2008 made it clear. He is dangerous because of the attention he receives as a beacon for the GOP. There is hardly a constitutional bone in his body. Congressman Ryan's actual record leaves much to be desired. The issue Ryan is most known for is his interest in cutting the deficit and balancing the budget. Ryan is a STATIST who goes with the Republican flow. But why did the Congressman vote to bail out the auto industry, to pass the Medicare package to the tune of $400 billion, and to nationalize education via No Child Left Behind?
"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....
