When your candidate goes from a presumed double digit lead to a dead heat the week before the election, the pollster probably has some explaining to do. Word on the street is that chief pollster Ed Goeas has been in a running battle with Kasich staff to stop reading the blogs. Former Kasich staffer, homeland security consultant, and lifelong suckling of the government teat, Jon Keeling hasn’t been helping.
Kasich staff hit refresh on Keeling’s sycophantic Kasich slurping blog all day long, waiting for the latest end zone victory dance telling them they’re gonna win, yay. But Kasich’s internal polling, which Goeas is responsible for, have consistently shown a tighter race. Now that every other poll shows the same thing, Goeas would probably like to say, “I told you so”. Hard to do that when the entire GOP has been dancing in the end zone with Jon Keeling.
Who’s gonna take the blame if Kasich loses? Can’t wait to find out.
