Rush has long said polls that were skewing results earlier in the year would become more accurate the closer to the election we get, primarily because these polling groups care about their credibility as matching up with the actual election results. The problem is that there are still some polls that are using D+7 demos and are thus showing Obama winning Ohio by +5 when most other polls show a dead heat or a slight Romney edge. Thus, Rush is being challenged by listeners who want to know why they would still be skewing the polls.
Rush posits his theory that there may be polling groups that are so far in the tank for Obama that they want to help give credence to the claim of voter suppression in the case of a close election with a Romney victory. Anticipating this, Rush says Obama is working on his ‘invalidate Romney’ lawsuit strategy that will challenge the results of close elections with the claim of voter suppression and will use polling data to amplify those claims. And that’s the reason why, he says, polling groups may still be skewing results in the favor of Democrats this close to the election.
