    The Beltway media wants a tight race at all costs even pushing party ID weightings to Record highs.
    No.  That's what is going.  That's not how pollsters work, and it certainly isn't how Pew works.  To claim that just shows a misunderstanding of how polls work.

    Polls can and will skew data, but they do it to bring those polled into line with the age/income/gender/race of the population in the polled area.  No one except crazy folk skew for "party" (see "unskewed polls").  

    Minority rights should never be subject to majority vote.
