Here's a great story about how the Right Wing media (Fox) and its pundits basically BS'd its viewers/readers into rejecting polls as "MSM propaganda," just as they deny so many other facts. The Right Wing echo chamber did the GOP in.

But I have no doubt the Right will develop a new fantasy narrative to explain this loss.

They were pretty damn close...what do you mean?

They basically had it with Romney with a 1 or 2 pt. lead going into the election with a 3% undecided and 3% margin of error.

I think if you check the results you'll find out they were right on the money. RCP was exact, Rasmussen was within 1% and Gallup within 2%. Seems pretty accurate to me.
