    I don't recall the Republicans bothering with excuses. Most of the excuses I heard came from Democratic coincidence theorists.

    I don't think the fact that the results in 2000 and 2004 differed from the polls (if they did) says much. All polls have a margin of error. Those elections were (apparently) quite close, so the polls wouldn't have had to be off by much to be "wrong." This year, the election was not close, and it would have taken a whopping error for the polls to have missed it.
