Shocker: Polls Wrong About Michigan, Too

First, a sampling of some of the polls from Real Clear Politics:

Now behold the actual results, via the Detroit Free Press:

Michigan vote

Republicans

5,236 of 5,385 precincts – 97 percent

x-Mitt Romney 334,797 – 39 percent
John McCain 255,103 – 30 percent
Mike Huckabee 138,428 – 16 percent
Ron Paul 54,016 – 6 percent
Fred Thompson 31,750 – 4 percent
Rudy Giuliani 24,475 – 3 percent
Uncommitted 17,749 – 2 percent
Duncan Hunter 2,799 – 0 percent
Tom Tancredo 451 – 0 percent
Sam Brownback 346 – 0 percent

Democrats

5,236 of 5,385 precincts – 97 percent

x-Hillary Clinton 312,540 – 55 percent
Uncommitted 226,474 – 40 percent
Dennis Kucinich 21,259 – 4 percent
Chris Dodd 3,706 – 1 percent
Mike Gravel 2,294 – 0 percent

Let’s see. Mr. Romney won in a nine point blow-out. And the “inevitable” Mrs. Clinton had 45 percent of the voters go against her, even though she was running virtually unopposed.

(Indeed, we are told that 70% of black voters went for “uncommitted,” rather than for Hillary. Of course that information is also based on a CNN exit poll.)

Mind you, these are the same kind of polls that are used endlessly to tell us that we are all expecting a recession. And a thousand other things the media want us to believe.

It kind of makes you wonder what President Bush’s approval ratings really are.
