No mind that Gallup and Rasmussen tell a totally different story, no mind that the CNN poll was debunked what matters simply is get a poll out there then write stories off of them to show despair and panic.
This story was written and then referenced these polls which are in direct contrast of two polling operations who are using models that don't skew the electorate to fit an unrealistic voting model.
Even here people read the polls without even looking at the methodology and then cry the sky is falling. The empirical evidence (Walker turnout,The Missouri turnout, the huge ChickFil-A turnout) shows an invigorated Republican base which is getting under polled and underestimated.
If these people really believe that Romney who polls up 5 points in Colorado and 2 points in Iowa (2 states Obama won handily) but is down 9 points nationally, they are nuts.
