A Political Riddle and Bonus Rant

Here's a riddle for you:

Q: What is Obama without Dennis Kucinich's supporters behind him?

A: Second Place.

But in all seriousness, this worries me. The polls were off (pre-polls like this tend to have large margins of error) but that is not how the media may play it. The media these days are all about "stories" they don't want facts they want a narrative. There is a movement underfoot in this country to get rid of exit polling because, "they are not accurate." Exit polling is an incredably accurate way to determine if there is electoral fraud or funny business. Whenever the US/UN helps set up foreign democracies they demand and relay HEAVILY on exit polls. Exit polls are completely different than these pre-polls. People who understand statistics understand that, but the media may not. I'm afraid this is going to be another "plot" in the media's asinine story that polls don't work and exit polling should be dropped. That is incredably scary. It is, in my mind, the worst thing that could happen in our republic, worse than electric voting or no paper trail. Get rid of exit polling and you effectively get rid of the first and in many ways last line of defense against fraud.
