Day after Day, leading up to election day, I watched bloated poll numbers keep Mitt Romney closer then he truly was. I was not the only one making this assessment; many jokes were made at the way Gallup did their polls. Not once did Romney say a Rasmussen polls was wrong. You could catch me yelling at my computer every time I viewed one of the averages that included Rasmussen, ARG, or Gravis Marketing in it. They controlled all averages, and if their controlling factor was not taken into account, the polling averages were made useless just to see Romney in the lead or tied.
Since I have been looking at polls, I have never saw a presidential candidate get the brakes Romney did. If it were not for Rasmussen and other conservative pollsters noted earlier, Romney would not of been considered a competitive candidate. I know the counter to this argument is Democrats have bias pollsters too. They do, but not in the numbers the GOP has. As for the polls, they are somewhat silent now; however, they will be back in 4 years to give the same bias account for their GOP candidate.
