Corrupt Polling -- An Unintended Consequence?!?
"But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive." Genesis 50:20
The past few weeks, as public polling has become increasingly comical, a consensus has emerged that the media is deliberately skewing their polls to demoralize Mitt voters.
I agree with that consensus; I am starting to wonder, however, if the result of this corrupt polling will be different from the consensus expectation.
What if corrupt polling makes Obamaites complacent?!?
Think about it: how many Mitt supporters do you know who are anything other than chomping at the bit to vote?!? Not bloody many. After everything the corrupt media has done to sabotage Republican candidates this cycle, how many people on our side are going to fall for this obvious psy-ops operation?!? Not bloody many. Even if Obama wins (which ain't gonna happen), people on our side are going to want to register their dissent, so they'll definitely vote.
Obama's voters are a different story. A substantial chunk of Barack Obama's 2008 voters are permanently lost. Moreover, it's not exactly secret that Obama's voters aren't enthusiastic. Their side feels no sense of urgency. Is it hard to believe, having been fed a steady diet of 'our guy is winning,' that a meaningful percentage could forget to vote?!?
On the one hand, you have a group of already-motivated voters whose efforts are denigrated by a media they despise; on the other hand, you have a group of unmotivated folks being fed a steady diet of 'we are winning.'
If, on November 7th, we learn that a meaningful chunk of Obama's voters didn't show up due to complacency, I would not be surprised.
