A Message To The MSM

Will you please quit showing all these national polls already? Yes, we get it--about 47% of the country is made up of ignoramuses who will vote against their own fiscal interests no matter what. Okay. But national elections are determined by the electoral college, not by popular vote, meaning that there are essentially 50 separate presidential elections nationwide. And whenever there is a tie in the electoral college, then the House votes for president. There is no logical reason why it is necessary for you to continue showing national polls and attempting to make it seem like a horse race when everyone knows Romney is losing in just about every battleground state, so please stop. Thank you.

3. Agreed!! May I please add that the programming

mostly punditry and opinion disguised as news confuses voters as well!

4. A caller brought this up on NPR today, he was cut off and his question never really addressed...

...the respondents addressed the importance of national numbers but never why the media lauds them above swing state polling.

The respondents should've said its because the MSM needs money and even national polls sound good

5. Wow. Yes, I've noticed that the MSM has gone from "swing state reporting" to "national" reports

but I AM a bit surprised (and disgusted) to learn that even NPR is in on "the agenda".

9. The reality is, we're winning. Romney has very few credible paths to electoral victory.

I wouldn't want to be on their side, right now. I'd be worried about losing the Senate, the WH, AND the House, all well within the realm of the possible right now. Imagine that!!!

I'd be lying awake imagining Obama appointing SCOTUS judges for the next 4 years.

I'd be chewing my nails and shitting my Republican pants.
