Color me not surprised.

Politico notices that polls tend to favor democrats at the cost of accurate polls.

Really? Here's a news flash guys. This isn't new news.

AoSHQ notes:

It's not like Conservatives and PUMA's have been making this claim since Super Tuesday. Oh wait. Yeah, we have.

Politico has finally figured out that in polling, there is this thing called "selection bias". There is also the related variable called "get the hell out of my face and leave me alone you nosy bastards." And exit pollsters, God love 'em, just don't seem to be able to figure out how to quantify this.
