THE NEWS OF POLLS

With hindsight, one feature of the presidential election sticks out like a broken toe: the polls were wrong.

First, the polls showed that the race was too close to be called. It was not. President Bush won handily, with the largest popular vote in American history.

Second, the exit polls said Kerry would win. He did not. The exit polls were wrong.

The problem with both the polls and the exit polls is that they were biased toward the Democrats. Why? This is a question not yet answered.
