Go home polls, you're all drunk!
Seriously, what the heck was up with that?
Rasmussen, Gallop, and Mason-Dixon in particular.
I don't think I'll ever trust Rasmussen again. They were consistently wrong. Gallup has been wrong for a month. Mason-Dixon has been all over the place.
Almost ever single poll was skewed right this year. Underestimated turnout? I don't know, but in virtually every race democrats over performed the polls.
Polls weren't even close in ND and MT.
Also, I am sick of PPP being called a left-leaning pollster. They're straight up.
I am looking forward to seeing what Nate Silver has to say about it.

1. for real. when we saw the desperate drop after first debate, it all became obvious bullshit.
between the media and the "new" view of polls a competitive election was created before our eyes, that was not a reality.
all thru that month of crap, i was confident we still stood at before the fabricated tight race.

4. Nate is such a freaking genius. He was great on the Daily Show last night! Really funny
when Jon was telling him he should be pounding his chest and roaring, "I am your statistic god!!" (paraphrased.)
