Mr. Barone, while I might appreciate your "sensitive" approach to try to balance this subject, there is an almost inescapable reality with the polling FRAUD... Yes, I call it fraud for a very simple reason:
Since roughly 1980 the polls have *almost* universally, and consistently, favored Democrats over Republicans. Certainly there are a few exceptions but on balance, and on the whole, they consistently and routinely favor Democrats.
That is NOT chance anymore. No matter what criteria is being used it is consistently favoring Democrats. If they haven't figured out why after 30+ years, OR if they haven't adjusted for it, then it is plainly FRAUD!
So please, I don't need any "schooling" to know they polls are ridiculously skewed.
