Get off Gallup's back—they were only biased for Romney by 7.2% on average

I mean, what's 7.2%?

Okay... yeah, it's just about the difference between George H W Bush and Mike Dukakis in 1988. (7.7%)

1. When pollsters are that wrong they should honorably go out of business

Yet, I bet you that Gallup will just go along their merry way that they have done nothing wrong.

2. To push the undecided voter to jump on the winning wagon.

PEW also published a last min poll. . . favoring Romney.

Gallup began upping Romney's numbers several weeks before the election.
You can track them.

All lies to create a false impression and to cover voter fraud, but the Republicans were caught in the act and . . . Democratic voters prevailed.
