Dean Chambers Admits He Was Wrong
President Barack Obama was elected to a second term. Dean Chambers predicted a Mitt Romney victory. In an interview with Bussiness Insider, Chambers admits he prediction was wrong.
"Nate Silver was right, and I was wrong," Chambers said in a phone interview.Chambers note believes their was more Democratic momentum.
"I think it was much more in the Democratic direction than most people predicted," Chambers said. "But those assumptions — my assumptions — were wrong."What happened was that the Obama campaign's ground game was excellent. In many parts of the country the Obama campaign surpassed their 2008 turnout. If Team Romney actually took their ground game seriously Mitt Romney would be the president-elect. Instead, Romney dragged his party down ob ballots across the country. Mitt Romney was the best thing to ever happen to Barack Obama. Romney is the worst Republican candidate since Bob Dole. Chambers takes Scott Rasmussen's polling to task.
"He has lost a lot of credibility, as far as I'm concerned," Chambers said. "He did a lot of surveys. A lot of those surveys were wrong." "He has lost a lot of credibility, as far as I'm concerned," Chambers said. "He did a lot of surveys. A lot of those surveys were wrong."Rasmussen's credibility was shot long before last night. Side note: I will give Chambers credit for admitting he was wrong. We aren't about to see a confession from Dick Morris anytime soon.
