It was a frantic weekend in the presidential polling universe.
Everyone and their mother produced a poll.
It was very entertaining to say the least. Especially all the heated and desperate attempts to make President Barack Obama appear to have the edge nationally, and in the handful of battleground states.
Every mainstream media polling result was weighted heavily in favor of a heavy Democrat turnout. A turnout that every pundit around realizes will never happen. The skewed weightings ranged anywhere from 6 to 11 percentage points in favor of the Democrats. In other words a turnout model greater than 2008 for many polls.
These polling groups are doing this with impunity and could care less as to how bad they look afterwards. They’ll just roll up into a ball and quietly go away.
Remember this maneuver is all about projections and making people believe one thing. Who will the winner will be?
Four years ago it was obvious Senator John McCain was going to be gutted going into Election Day. This time that’s not the case.
The undecided voters and party turnout intensity will decide Tuesday’s outcome in the handful of electoral college state’s in-play.
Right now it doesn’t look so great for the President.
Obama’s three days of so-called looking Presidential, due to Hurricane Sandy, has faded. Combine this with his major screw-up of telling a crowd to “Vote for revenge” last Friday and he’s in trouble.
