I’m not sure who did what, but whatever they’ve done, they sure did it. So what did they do? If you’ve watched the news this week, you probably have heard by now that Romney is up in the polls after the debates. Immediately there is conservative cheer and liberal jeer. That’s normal. The leader tends to control the narrative. What is a little out of the ordinary, however, is that the left is reminding the right quite consistently that they doubted the validity of the polls when President Obama was in the lead.
Sounds like the joke’s on Romney, huh? Not really – I have a fun “just-for-kicks” conspiracy theory about this. It’s not really even that hard to believe.
Here’s what I think is going on. All summer long the Limbaugh’s, Beck’s, and even Paul Ryan‘s of this world have barked and howled, calling foul on the presidential polling numbers. “Romney’s not that far behind,” they said. Rush Limbaugh even stated on his radio program, “These two polls today are designed to convince everybody this election is over. And Jan Crawford at CBS looks at one of these… I don’t want anybody falling for this. I’ll analyze these polls and explain to you why they’re bogus as the program unfolds.”
So now that the polls are turned, naturally the Republicans and/or conservatives are excited to see Romney in the lead. The left has been quick to point out that only a few weeks ago the right was saying the very same polls were skewed and untrustworthy, but now are celebrating their perceived victory. However, in the process of doing so, those on the left are also doing a very good job of REMINDING everyone that Romney is leading in the polls. It’s almost as if the Romney supporters knew the polls would eventually work to his favor, so they found a way to make sure as many people got the news as possible. Also, now the left can’t say that Obama is leading the polls and that they are biased toward the right.
That’s my crazy idea about the polls! Whether there’s a conspiracy or not, one thing is sure: the left dare not say the polls are rigged! Now, that whole unemployment rate drop is another matter entirely. And I decline to comment on it at this time.SHARE
