‘Unskewed Polls’ Founder: ‘I Was Only Wrong’ Because I Didn’t Consider Voter Fraud

The conservative activist who gained a following during last year’s campaign for his efforts to “unskew” polls has a theory on why his predictions for the election were so wildly off the mark, writing late last month that his analysis was incomplete because he did not consider the purported voter fraud and voter suppression efforts that he claimed were integral to President Barack Obama’s victory.

Dean Chambers, the founder of UnSkewedPolls.com, wrote in a piece on Examiner.com that the “Obama Regime definitely won the election” by suppressing votes from would-be supporters of Mitt Romney and committing “massive voter fraud in the key swing states” – although he offered no evidence for either claim.

“I was only wrong in those projections because I was not aware nor did I calculate in the voter fraud and the voter suppression, both of which exceeded the margin by which Barack Obama was declared the winner of that election last Fall,” Chambers wrote.

It wasn’t the first time Chambers floated such a theory. Shortly after last year’s election, he launched a new website — BarackOFraudo.com — in which he alleged that the President did not legitimately carry Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Florida. That website included a map (shown below) with the disputed states colored black.
