“I’ve always said that a potential Achilles heel for the Tea Party movement is the presidential election, because the power of the Tea Party movement comes from its leaderlessness, and if one guy screws up, we just kick them out and move on, because you’re not really dependent on one leader to always get it right. When it comes to selecting a nominee for president to run against Obama, you ultimately are stuck with one guy, right? Or one lady. So I don’t know how that works itself out.”

Foul Play in Latest Indiana Senate Poll? Certainly Looks That Way

By Kemberlee Kaye, 11/05/12

This election season has brought a new focus on the validity and accuracy of polling data. Given a dramatic skew in one direction (up to eleven points in some cases), some claim polls are being used to construct a narrative in order to influence an outcome rather than functioning as passive predictors.

On the Campaign trail in 2008, President Obama candidly mentioned in an interview that if the U.S didn't move away from coal to produce energy, then he would make sure that our electric bills would "necessarily sky rocket."  Guess what?  This is one area where he has kept his word and utility bills are on the rise.
