I don't think that was spiking the ball, it was fairly factual. Fox News helped create the right wing bubble where a lot of people would get their news and wouldn't look elsewhere. When the polls didn't look good, they looked to Rasmussen (which ended up being one of the most inaccurate polls) for their poll results and got misled into thinking the election was in the bag for Romney. I watched some of the Dick Morris clips from Fox News and he was predicting Romney would win by 8-9 points in Ohio. Predicting a win is one thing, but by 9 points in that state was patently absurd. Yet people still bought it because they refused to look elsewhere. As a result, a lot of right wingers were shocked when Obama won in an electoral college landslide. If they hadn't dismissed every other poll, maybe they would have seen the landslide coming.
