Skip to comments.The ‘Unskewed Polls’ guy who fooled a nation tries again [Grifter Not Quite Done Grifting Yet]
Posted on 11/20/2012 8:32:45 PM PST by KentTrappedInLiberalSeattle
When last we left Dean Chambers, the Duffield, Va., resident was licking his wounds in Virginias coal fields, trying to figure out how hed fooled himself and much of a nation into believing the Mitt Romney would win the election.
Chambers, 45, the founder of UnskewedPolls.com, ultimately decided he had incorrectly forecast that too few Democrats would vote. He admitted this mistake. Now, it appears hes reconsidering.
Recently he launched a new website, BarackOFraudo.com. It seeks to understand how four states that he had incorrectly predicted would go to Romney Virginia, Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania actually went to Obama.
Hes decided that was due to voter suppression and yes, voter fraud:
That millions of potential Republican voters, that vote for McCain in 2008 while far less enthused about doing so, did not turn out to vote for Romney in 2012 clearly proves the voter suppression campaign waged by the mainstream media and to some extent by the Democrat Party, worked quite well.
While the overall strategy was voter suppression, it is clear from viewing these stats that boosting the turnout in key swing states (the ones in yellow above) was taking place as well.
Without further or more detailed proof, there is objectively two ways to increase voter turnout on the side of those supporting Obama, as it clearly did happen in some key swing states: either get more real people out to vote who will vote for Obama, or stuff the ballot boxes and engage in a variety of vote fraud and vote scamming methods. Odds are quite likely, to maximize their odds of succeeding in getting President Obama elected, that they engaged in all of the above to make it happen.
I wrote a column about Chambers the Sunday after the election, when it appeared he was taking stock of the problem with believing the news he had created. Then, he was coming around to the idea that hed been helping the emperor pick out his new clothes.
But Chambers seems to have switched horses, and is now arguing that he wasnt wrong that suppression and fraud handed the president a win.
The chief danger here is that hell fool himself and others again, which will not serve GOP interests in future elections.
On the other hand, he made some good money unskewing those polls and fooling Republicans before. Perhaps hes simply up to his old tricks again, and writing stuff he knows people want to hear.
Sayeth the n00b. LOL!
“...Romney was a MA liberal playing conservative and moderate at the same time,...”
A man who tries to be all things to all people is ultimately nothing to anyone.
Truer words have never been spoken.
Swing states which Romney lost FL, OH and WI all have Republican governors and yet the WI house and Senate picked up R seats under Walker at the same time.
So please don't equate him or OH gov Kasich to Stalin. That is ridiculous.
Careful. This lot tends to piddle. ;)
” Romney was a MA liberal playing conservative and moderate at the same time, something he he had little chance of pulling off.
But he was also a living caricature of how Dems portray Republicans: Super rich, out of touch, elite, detached, only thinking of their rich elitist friends and pretty bland.
He was a perfect choice to help O get out the Dem vote and yes suppress some of the R vote.”
Well done, SOL. This turned out to be a big F’n deal !
Where did I say anything about any Republican governor?
Auto correct spell checkers do some funny things. Then factor in age related dementia and the early morning hour. Plus the fact that I can barely read the text anymore because of warped retinas, makes mistake very easy.
So color me as I don't give a cr@p what you think.
Your own Governor was elected by fraud and you don't seem to know that.
Elections have been manipulated professionally since voting machines were first put in play, and that will only improve with more powerful data collection that the government is implementing.
Did you vote for your Governor?
Dunce. Of course I know that. There was actual hard, demonstrable PROOF, in Gregoire's case... something sadly lacking, self-evidently, in the course of your own twitchy, overheated fantasies, re: Mittens. Strike Two.
So color me as I don't give a cr@p what you think.
Now you're simply pouting -- both unattractive and grotesquely inappropriate, in an (ostensibly) grown man. Third whiff, and it's the long, slow shamble back to the long pine for you.
Sober up. Take a long walk around the block. Breathe into a paper bag. Whatever it takes, ultimately.
"Fine. Then, by that knock-kneed 'logic': it shouldn't matter one whit whom we nominate in 2016, or how conservative they are; and, therefore, we can run Sarah Palin, or Allen West, or anybody the conservative voting base damned well wants, with no b!tching or kvetching from the party's squishy, socially liberal 'moderates' and suchlike... right?"
You've stated that elections are not honest. Either you honestly believe that, or you're simply beating your gums, for no good or intelligent purpose. Which is it?
There is always massive fraud. But enough to have made the margin of difference?
At best it would have been a very narrow win, there is no getting around that the rat polls were on the money.
The reason why all these ‘Romney could have lost only by voter fraud because I was SO sure that he would win’ claims don’t move me is because I could see Romney losing the campaign as it was happening. It was pretty obvious and now you can see where all the wishful thinking leads to,total delusion.
If they wan’t to look for election funny-business the best place to start would be the Republican primary. How do losers like McCain and Romney keep getting nominated as the ‘most electable’ when they are hated by conservatives? Maybe RINOs are double or triple voting in those early state primaries. Same idea.
I liked the freeper who said that the only reason Romney could of lost was voter fraud, when a month or two ago he posted here that he would not (never) vote for Romney.
People like to forget that most every single poll but Gallup & Ras showed Romney behind in every swing state all summer & fall. And we now know what trash Gallup & Ras turned out to be.
And Dick Morris.
This goes back to my theory about how many people are lured to those who tell them that things really are as they really wish them to be, resulting in a huge shook.
While Republicans were living in this ‘we are winning, the polls are all rigged fantasy:
Obama campaign was running a successful ‘get out the vote’ campaign in SWING STATES that including going from door to door and a phone app that helped them get Dem leaning names off face book to contact to urge them to vote.
Alternatively Romney campaign paid a scam organization to round up worthless voter registrations of people who didn't exist(and naturally didn't vote) , they paid twice what Obama did for TV ads due to poor planning and they paid big $$$ to create a computer center to locate Republicans to contact that kept crashing and didnt work.
Romney campaign wasted their donors money and then he told his donors it was all the moocher voters fault that he lost, not his.
And....somehow Freeper jackmercer called the election out here weeks before the vote by using real data & looking at the stats like Nate Silver did. It looks like Romney’s own internal polls were wrong. You can’t excuse that kind of stupid. But the GOP is the stupid party:(
To me they look totally dysfunctional as a party.
They look like they completely misread 2010 by behaving like the fight was over (against Dems) and that they would just be swept into office on wishful thinking. 2010 was a free-bee they couldn't lose but they acted like they thought it was the final battle and most would just naturally vote R without a struggle. Obama sure didnt assume that.
This silly voter fraud stuff fits right into this, notice Dems didn't steal 2010?
It looked bad to me in September and it looks bad to me now.
It’s complicated. The GOP is facing demographic replacement & they don’t know what to do: fight it & face the racism charge...or just go along to get along. The GOP has not kept up with the new voter technology. And IMO the democratic party is now so lawless & criminal that the GOP is at a loss in how to deal with them.
