Well, we sorta missed the deadline on this. Some staffers have been focused on increasing their stash of empty Starbucks cups and others have been cramming Ghirardelli mini chocolate chip cookies in their faces. Now that all campaign bets have been settled and Candy Crowley has stopped calling, we finally finished the Fake Social Science pre-election survey.
The advantage to publishing it now is that it doesn't matter, so no one will remember if we got the numbers right or not.
It was a long year for the GOP. Debate upon debate in the forever primary. A new front runner every week. The Romney campaign went broke during this period paying for ads to tear down the Front Runner du jour. We sorta thought that a rich guy who wanted to be President wouldn't take public money so he could take advantage of spending his own $$$ should the need arise. You know, like if the incumbent was spending millions and weeks demonizing you as a vulture capitalist and a hater of women and minorities. Ah, well, that ship has sailed.
