    The "conservative entertainment complex", as columnist David Frum put it, promulgated a view of the American electorate that wasn't just objectively false, in terms of polled support, but to which they objected. That is, they didn't just get wrong how much support Romney had; they told a story about American voters that Americans themselves didn't believe.
    Whenever a new poll would come out putting Mitt in the lead or saying women loved Mitt or whatever, I would wonder whether it made any difference.

    Do people really vote based on who's doing better in the polls?

    I know, to some extent, people will stay home if the race looks lost, but the public polls (many of which were BS) never really got that far, so I wondered if we wasted too much effort trying to knock them down.

    Show us your tax returns !!!!!!
