Largely with the use of rigged polls, the media has had some success in dispiriting patriotic Americans in the run-up to the biggest election of our lives. Maybe this guess post by B1bbet will help dispel the gloom:
I know these odious polls are trying on our patience, but keep these things in mind as you slog through the latest MSM’s putrid poll discharge.
1. Missouri: Since 1904, MO has gotten the winner of the Presidential Election wrong just twice; once in 1956 and last year. Last year, they missed it by the wafer-thin margin of 0.1% of votes cast. Romney is up big there — by about 7 points by the RCP average as I write this. MO getting it wrong, two years in a row and by such a large margin this time around? Does not compute.

2. Undecideds: Logic would dictate that undecided voters are such since they don’t like how the incumbent is performing, otherwise they would be in his camp already, as they know what they’re getting when casting their ballot for him. A rather lengthy study here (http://www.pollingreport.com/incumbent.htm) shows that approximately 82% of undecided voters end up voting for the challenger should they vote at all. I’m going to grant The Won a bit of wiggle room here due to the media’s ongoing tongue bath, though, and say that number will be just 75% this time around. Three of 4 undecided voters pulling the lever for Romney? Yes, please.
3. Party Identification: Research here shows that, even with a slim lead in party identification, the Republicans typically come out winners. As of this writing, this method seems to show a landslide for The R’n'R Express. http://datechguyblog.com/2012/09/17/demoralized-as-hell-the-poll-the-media-isnt-talking-about-edition/
Bonus nuggets of goodness:
~ 2010 Happened: A historic rebuking of Obama’s hard-left policies actually DID happen, as much as the MSM may like to forget about it. Now, unlike Clinton, who was dragged further to the center by his midterm spanking, Obama only went harder left as a result. Think that sits well with all the people who cast votes in the Big Red Wave midterms?
~ Common Sense: Are there ANY indicators, besides these clearly slanted polls, that one can point to and say, “Yeah, Obama’s got that going for him”? The only one I could think of was bin Laden, and I’m pretty sure he won’t be mentioning that one much in the coming weeks for obvious reasons.
In short — don’t believe the hype. Believe your gut. This guy is terrible and the majority of the country knows it, just like you and I do.
