Lessons learned going forward: 1/ Do not guess states based on the anecdotal counting of yard signs; 2/ Do not guess states based on rally attendance; 3/ The polling averages, i.e. RCP, are actually pretty accurate...
I said to my husband that we have to just unlearn everything we’ve learned. I have lived enough time in Europe to observe. You need to find a way to live in that system. Basically that means you trade time (off) for everything else.I don’t like it but it is he way it is.
Polling had Romney up so how was it accurate? And don’t give me that crap about Christie spiking O’s numbers. No way that picture shifted a nation’s vote. Hell, I never even saw it.
If I had a dollar for every time someone else realized that on FR....I'd have about $50.
One problem is people tend to mis-remember poll inaccuracy - the Wisconsin governor polls weren't that far off-the problem was the media spun the race to make it look closer than it was.
