After Wisconsin Exit Polls, White House Must Wonder If All the Polling is Wrong

You know what they’re asking themselves in the White House today? They’re probably asking themselves a lot of things, and they’re probably lying to themselves about a lot of things. I think the question that they’re asking themselves today, something along the lines of, “What if all of the polling we have is wrong?”

Like many powerful, influential members of the media, I, your host, had access to the early and intermediate exit polls. I did. There was an election yesterday in Wisconsin. By the way, you really have to love some of the headlines and some of the leads in the stories about the Walker victory. How about this from the Washington Post: “Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker Survives Recall Election.” Survives? I saw that all night last night. “Survives”? That implies barely. That implies by a gnat’s eyelash. Survives? This was a thumping! It was a bigger margin than it was two years ago.
