7. Meh. It's happening again.

We cite all the polls showing the increase in our guy's polling results as golden.

We dismiss all the polls showing a decrease in our guy's polling results as flawed and wrong.

By election day in 2008 I fully expected Obama's polling results, after all the 2-5% jumps in the polls, to be at least 395% of voter registration--and that's in the deepest red precincts. In swing states I expected him to take upwards of 700% of voter registration numbers. That was his due, and anything less could only be due to voter and electoral fraud. There was no way in 2010 that the Democrats could have not taken every election, from dog catcher to Senator, with a minimum of 250% of voter turnout (and, in some, I expected a minimum of 1000% of voter turnout--unless there was fraud, of course).

The good news it that's probably my last poll post until the spate of posts saying that the early exit polls based on partial, preliminary numbers in a handful of precincts and on a outrageously incorrect and inadequate voter-turnout model are cited as God's very own truth.
