We all know HOW they could do this: they tweak the sample in order to skew the results.
HERE's MY REASONING: for the last week Bush has been gaining in several BLUE states - Hawaii, Michigan, New Jersey, Michigan, Minnesota, New Mexico - and Bush has substantial leads in Iowa and Wisconsin. ALL BLUE STATES.
The Old Media NEEDED these BOGUS polls in order to be able to claim that the race as "tightening" - when in fact Bush is consolidating his his lead.
The Old Media knows that their bogus polls won't CHANGE MINDS, so... what effect do they REALLY THINK THEY'LL HAVE!?
They can help make the THEFT of the election by the Democrats SEEM valid.
You see, the ONLY hope for the Democrats is to STEAL the election by voter fraud, and they intend to intimidate the courts to support their attempted fraud. If NO NATIONAL POLLS show Kerry in the lead, their case would be thought of INCREDULOUS by the public, and laughed out of the court. The bogus polls are a necessary part of the strategy. The Old Media and the Left - and the Democrat Party they now control - know they need a few bogus polls to help make the phony election results credible!
Oh... oh... oh, you say: "the Old Media would NEVER stoop to that!"
Sure. Yeah. Right. They LIED about al Qaqaa in NYTrogate, and blew ABU GRAIB all out of proportion, and they used FORGED MEMOS to try to rehash a decades old lie about Bush's National Guard service. All to smear the president.
Faking polls may be the LEAST of their crimes! But a crucial one if the Democrats hope to get away with STEALING THE ELECTION.
BOTTOM-LINE: GET OUT AND VOTE, AND WATCH THE POLLS CAREFULLY.
