Repubs See the Glass More than Half-Full for Romney

The Far Right is desperate to believe that the polls are much closer than is being reported by the "lamestream media." They believe the polls are actually neck and neck in the swing states and that the country is trending much redder rather than blue.

What does Adam say on Mythbusters?

"I reject your reality and substitute my own."

Now they even have their own Pollster trying to "Unskew" the polls.

From BuzzFeed
Dean Chambers, a blogger on who writes from his home in Duffield, Virginia, took that complaint a step further — producing wide Romney leads far beyond what the Republican's campaign or Republican pollsters have suggested is the case.
He created the site, retooling national polling data this July after reading an ABC News/Washington Post poll that "just didn't look right." Looking at the internal data, Chambers saw that the polling unit had sampled more Democrats than Republicans.
"There's no way they can justify that sample," Chambers, 44, told BuzzFeed.
Since July, Chambers has re-weighted national polling data from organizations like Gallup, ARG, and the three networks, to fit the Rasmussen Reports partisan trends. Chambers has published 30 "unskewed" polls on his website and on, a national network that pays independent bloggers on a wide range of subject by traffic. In the last month, Chambers's tooled polls have Romney up by seven or more points.

You can see what is wrong with this picture if you compare the Unskewed Poll with the latest snapshot of the country via To your basic Tea Partier, the country is much more red, the blue of the Democrats is diminishing, swing states only swing to the right, and of course - they win. The problem is that doesn't have much to do with reality. Mitt Romney is an unlikable candidate who makes three gaffes a day, and therefore President Obama will be reelected in just a few short weeks.

But this snapshot of GOP denial is one for the ages.
