Barack Obama wins the Iowa caucus. The media for the most part annoints him president. Cancel all the primaries.
Five days later, Hilary Clinton wins the New Hampshire primary. Again, the media is in full out frenzy and annoints her president. Cancel the remaining primaries.
Why doesn't the media just sit back and report the events as they happen? Forget projections, exit polls, pre election polls, research polls, and any other poll and wait for the results.
Also don't be surprised when during this primary madness someone asks, "Who's running in 2012?" I'll have a poll ready for them all right.
