Have I jumped to the wrong conclusion
Earlier today I jumped to the conclusion that inaccurate polling methods, and a press corp which is lazy and incurious has given us eight years of bullshitting president, and now, an inaccurate read on the next election.
Now, some have raised the possibility (without any real evidence, mind you), that perhaps, the polling firms were not wrong, and that, like in Ohio in 2004, it's the Diebold voting machines which should be called into question.
In the minds of most Americans, this will fall into the category of crackpot conspiracy theory, but I personally, am done with dismissing these theories out-of-hand, when so much in history has proven these odd tales to be true.
