Are you talking about the "media" or are you actually referring to the
pollsters. While most of the polls ended up being pretty accurate, the
media (i.e., commentators), especially the Republican media, was not
so accurate. A fairly large number of Republican pundits predicted a
Romney victory, and a few (Dick Morris, George Will, Newt Gingrich,
Peggy Noonan) even said he would win in a landslide.
