The final results are in and here's the official results from the final polls compared to the election results with their bias: Politico: Tie, Bias -2.2 Right wing Rasmussen: Willard +1, Bias -3.2 right wing IDB: Obama +1, Bias -1.2 Right wing CNN: Tie, Bias -2.2 Right wing Gallup: Willard +1, Bias -3.2 right wing ABC: Obama +3, Bias +0.8 left wing Monmouth/surveyusa: Tie, Bias -2.2 right wing NBC: Obama +1, Bias -1.2 right wing Pew: Obama +3, Bias +0.8 left wing RCP: Obama +0.7, Bias -1.5 right wing Unskewed, the one that claims to "fix" the democratic bias to polls, Willard +2.7, Bias, -4.9 right wing Now factoring in the margins of error to give the most to the least accurate pollster, the results are,..... 1. Pew 2. ABC 3. NBC 4. IDB 5. RCP 6. Monmouth/surveyusa 7. Politico 8. CNN 9. Gallup 10. Rasmussen 11. Unskewed What we can clearly see is that there was no "oversampling of dems" conspiracy the right wing machine was trying to spread, quite the opposite. Most pollsters oversampled republicans. Proof again that rasmussen is nothing but right wing propaganda that fudges the numbers to give the right wingers a stroke job, and the classic "the polls are lib biased!" tinfoil conspiracy unskewed was trying to pull was nothing but a complete steaming pile of shit. Remember this thread, any time a right winger tries to claim rasmussen or unskewed are "the most accurate" it will be proof again they are full of shit RealClearPolitics - Election 2012 - General Election: Romney vs. Obama

I think you are making the same mistake that Fordham political science teacher made in 2008 when he used incomplete numbers to grade pollsters. I think when all the votes are finally counted - the real final result might be different than Obama +2.2.

No - I believe Rass will only get further away from the actual total. Seems a lot of the counting that remains is in places where Obama's margins were fairly big,. But there are some votes out there Romney as well in ruralish kinds of state where he did well like Tennessee. But I do think the final count could get up to as much as 2.5 or 2.6.

I agree it's possible once all the votes from florida come in the results for Obama could go even higher
