Where the Polls At?

By Eric Zanzucchi (@ericzanzucchi)

We live in a day and age where sadly, life is very predictable. Based on your level of education there is a Microsoft Excel worksheet somewhere that can tell you how much annual income you should expect to make. There are always exceptions like the high school dropout that made it as a stand up comedian or the Harvard Business School graduate that got hooked on heroine, but in general the statistics tell the story.

For some reason the statistics don’t apply when it comes to the presidential election. Countless conservatives are balking at recent polls that claim Obama has a ‘legitimate’ lead. (Shout out to Todd Akin, who Nationsmith correctly predicted wasn’t finished by his comments.) It’s not just some polls that are favoring Obama; it’s almost all of them. RealClearPolitics.com compiles an average from several polling experts both conservative and liberal to try and weed out bias. Well this week all the polls they used favored Obama to varying degrees, including Fox that now says Obama has a five point lead.

I would like an explanation from devout conservatives. When even the conservative biased polls are claiming that Obama has a lead, explain to me again how Romney has this thing in the bag.
