Rush: Everything But Polls Say Romney Landslide

November 6, 2012 3:14 am  

(News Max) – Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh charged on Monday that the nation’s pollsters have failed to accurately predict the outcome of the 2012 presidential election.

“Common sense tells me this election isn’t gonna be close — and it shouldn’t be,” Limbaugh said on his afternoon radio program. “And yet, every poll, every single poll, has this race tied.

“I have said that as we get down to the election, the polls are gonna reflect what’s really gonna happen because the pollsters want to get it right for the future,” he said later in the program. “That has not happened. It has not happened. There’s not one poll that gives either candidate an edge, not one pollster is willing to stick his neck out here.”

He noted how most polls are showing President Barack Obama virtually tied with GOP challenger Mitt Romney — generally below 50 percent — when other factors are favoring the former Massachusetts governor.

Limbaugh cited, for instance, “the Redskins Rule,” in which the party that’s out of power wins when the Washington Redskins lose their last home game before Election Day.

The Redskins lost to the Carolina Panthers, 21-13, at home, FedEx Field.

The rule has proved itself in 17 of the last 18 presidential elections since the Redskins moved to Washington in 1937. The only exception was in 2004 when George W. Bush defeated John Kerry despite The ‘Skins losing to the Green Bay Packers.

“The Redskins lost to the Carolina Panthers,” Limbaugh said. “That means Romney wins. I guarantee you, if the Redskins had won the game, that’s all you would be seeing on the media today. I guarantee you. You can’t find it anywhere.”

He added: “The enthusiasm that got people out in 2010, I’m seeing at every Mitt Romney rally. Romney’s drawing crowds of 20,000, 25,000, 30,000, 15,000.

“The enthusiasm that we all saw in 2010 is there. The same issues that existed in 2010 exist today. There hasn’t been anything that’s gotten better.”
