RUSH: So you build it up, put out a poll that shows a massive Obama lead and early voting goes on, and so you stoke Obama voters, you depress Romney voters. You convince the voters that your candidate’s so far ahead he can’t lose, then why waste your vote on a loser? And thanks to early voting, then the media can skew the polls early on and make the race suddenly tighter in the last weeks before Election Day to try to preserve their so-called credibility.
See, I firmly believe the polls are being used right now in a number of ways, but one, it’s a tie-in to early voting to get Obama votes out there, suppress Romney votes. Fundraising, too.
