Polling Numbers

Ann Coulter did some homework.

...Reviewing the polls printed in The New York Times and The Washington Post in the last month of every presidential election since 1976, I found the polls were never wrong in a friendly way to Republicans. When the polls were wrong, which was often, they overestimated support for the Democrat, usually by about 6 to 10 points.

...In the last presidential election the polls were surprisingly accurate -- not including the massively inaccurate Election Day exit poll. In the end, Bush beat John Kerry 50.7 percent to 48.3 percent in 2004. Most of the October polls showed the candidates in a dead-heat, with Bush 1 to 3 points ahead. So either pollsters got a whole lot better starting in 2004, or Democrats stole more votes in that election than we even realized

The Democrats learned from 2004, and have created the opportunity to (approximately) quintuple their vote-stealing/fraud in key states.

I don't trust polls. Period. There appears to be an attempt by the MSM and Democrat enablers (is there a difference...?) to paint this election as a foregone conclusion. It's as if they're saying to Republicans: "Don't bother coming out to vote. You've lost already".

I don't buy it and I hope people see through it. There may be a few surprises come November...
