Ohio: Reality Punishes Polls And Those That Buy Into Them

It's almost laughable.

In terms of absentee ballot requests, Republicans are hugely over-performing their 2008 levels, and the Democrats are underperforming compared to 2008, especially in the big counties,” he said. “What this means is that the polls are wrong. For weeks polls have shown an Obama lead ranging from 1 point to 8 points. But these absentee ballot requests reflect a huge enthusiasm gap among Democrats and Republicans, and I’m predicting a total shift from 2008.”

The smugness of the past is fading as their vaunted polls are punished by reality. I'm sure they will say  it's racism somehow.
