Dean Chambers, the rightie poll-denier genius behind unskewedpolls.com, explains the basic difference between the American Right and the American Left:
While many conservatives look to former Clinton political consultant Dick Morris to understand the polls and political surveys on the elections, or even a site like UnSkewedPolls.com, those on the left look to New York Times blogger Nate Silver.
Behold some of Morris’s predictions from 2010:
Morris talked about Christine Oâ€™Donnell having a 50-50 shot to win the Delaware U.S. Senate seat (she lost by 13 percent), how Republican Joe DioGuardi had a good shot against incumbent Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand in the New York U.S. Senate race (she won with 62 percent), and how Carl Palladino had a â€œsuperb chanceâ€ of upsetting Andrew Cuomo in the New York State gubernatorial race (he lost by 29 percent).
The bottom line here is that Chambers is claiming that the â€œrightâ€ like to get their numbers and analysis from a blatant partisan commentator and/or from a source that re-calculates the polling results while the â€œleftâ€ likes to go to a fellow who analyzes copious amounts of data via sophisticated modeling. This strikes me as damning the â€œrightâ€ quite frankly. It certainly puts Chambersâ€™ POV into perspective (not that this is a surprise).
In other words, Chambers lives deep in the weeds of rightie la-la-land and wouldn’t know reality if it smacked his face and introduced itself. Further, Chambers’s opinion piece is unconsciously and hysterically funny, especially if you are amused by psychosexual obsessions:
Nate Silver is a man of very small stature, a thin and effeminate man with a soft-sounding voice that sounds almost exactly like the â€œMr. New Castratiâ€ voice used by Rush Limbaugh on his program. In fact, Silver could easily be the poster child for the New Castrati in both image and sound.
And here’s the punch line: Yesterday even Chambers had Obama two points ahead of Romney. See “Now Even the “Unskewed” Polling Has Obama out in Front.”
