56. We have to stop making excuses

Of course Gravis is skewed, and so is ARG for that matter.

I've sent messages to Nate about this, and I'm sure other people have too. That would change the numbers somewhat, but it still ignores the fundamental issue here:

Romney had a GAME CHANGER. He went from being a nearly sure loser to giving himself a good shot of winning. In one night he knocked Obama flat and re-set the entire race.

That's why we're seeing such massive changes in the polls.

Now having said that, as long as Obama remains ahead in Ohio, he's still in the game. And as long as the Obama internal polls continue to show signs of stability that's good too.

But we can't blame all of this on Gravis. They are just taking advantage of a situation that Obama created.
