Star Tribune Bias Confirmed

We reported here a few days ago about the biased polling practices of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Now that the election is just about over, we have more hard data to back up our claims.

In their final poll before the elction, the Star Tribune claimed Kerry led Bush in Minnesota 49% to 41%, or an 8 point spread.

With 98% of MN precincts reporting, the results are Kerry 51% and Bush 48%.

This means the Star Tribune was within 2% for their Kerry prediction, well within the poll's 3.7 margin of error, but was off by 7% for their Bush prediction, a goof well outside the poll's margin of error on the Republican side, and proof yet again, that ideology is the tie that blinds.
