The Ass-Whuppin' Cometh
by James Carville
It's Election Day...the latest and last pre-election Democracy Corps poll shows President Obama up by four points nationally...so Stan and I are feeling pretty good about today's results. There's nothing in other national polls or state polls to contradict our assessment about this election - and if anything, the president gained momentum in the final day or so.
Instead of learning from experience, the Republicans continue their war on science and facts. Now they're furious that anyone would dare use polling data to predict an election outcome that isn't going their way, and taking it out on Nate Silver, the polling blogger at the New York Times.
If a play were opening tonight, I think the title should be "The Ass-Whuppin' Cometh."
