    For all the "OMG why bother having an election Romney and Ryan are dead in the water threads", reality hits.

    As we on the right have predicted, in the home stretch the left wing polls must tighten to maintain *cough* their credibility. :D

    Gee, looky here l'l libroids. Romney/Ryan are now within the margin of error. Aw shucks, golly gee, who'd a thunk it?

    I love this line.

    The president's three point margin is within the poll's sampling error.

    :lol:

    Battle for presidency remains close in new CNN poll

    And from the article please note the polls that have *cough* tightened up besides CNN.

    Three other national polls of likely voters released in the past 24 hours also indicate a tight race. The other surveys are from ABC News/Washington Post, Politico/George Washington University, and American Research Group.

    But I thought all of the polls were skewed? You guys need to make up your minds.

    People tune out when they think it's already over. Smart people at the Network realize this and put out polls showing it's a horse race.

    You're not gonna' watch the Super Bowl if you think one team's gonna' run away with it.

    Did the margins tighten because they always were, or because the MSM got called out on their lies too many times?

    I'm confused. :confused:

    The mantra has been that the so-called "MSM" is part of liberal conspiracy to re-elect Obama. Now...you're telling us that they're not?

    Oh, well...I guess y'all can take a page from Mitt Romney's Etch-A-Sketch playbook. If one thing you say doesn't stick, change it to just the opposite and see if that works. :eusa_whistle:

    Quite simply put, they were. They were skewed.

    If one knows how to read the actual poll itself instead of relying on a screaming headline that basically states "Obama wins", one would realize that the sampling of Democrats in certain polls was outrageously high.

    Consequently, that sampling skewers the poll.

    The tightening in the polls at this stage of the race is 101. Instead of attempting to use polls to depress the opposing parties electoral turnout, at this point in time the pollsters have to man up and get real.

    What are you talking about? I clearly pointed out in my OP that the polls are tightening as predicted by many of us who have been thru many an election.

    I as well as many others on the board knew that the MSM polls were skewed as to depress the conservative voter turnout.

    There is no "etch a sketch" moment here. And at this point in time, the MSM has to pony up and get real or lose any *cough* credibility that they have.
