"Cuccinelli Why You're Doing It Wrong" The Top Egg On Face Virginia Election Articles And Pollsters (PPP Especially)

On election night Cuccinelli lost by 1.62 points-hardly the 7 point blowout that PPP Polling advised was going to happen. He reportedly got 91% of the GOP vote as a Tea Party type candidate and if the Libertarian had not run and got 6% or so who knows how this might have turned out

Here are some of the leading candidates for the "egg on the face of the year awards" given their,variously, utterly wrong, biased and agenda driven articles and polls. Of particular enjoyment are the Daily Beast, the ridiculous Taylor Marsh and, as always, the Dem pollsters at PPP Polling-enjoy.

Last month, we wrote that Ken Cuccinelli II’s campaign to become Virginia’s next governor needed to raise its game or face certain defeat. Has it done so? Unequivocally, no.
