|Rove already making excuses for the upcoming Diebold 'election'|
"Karl Rove, President Bush's top political strategist, says he doesn't believe the polls -- at least the public polls that claim the Republicans are likely to lose the House of Representatives and possibly even the Senate on Election Day."
"'I see several things,' Rove says. 'I'm allowed to see the polls on the individual races. And after all, this does come down to individual contests between individual candidates.'"
"In addition to polls not generally available to the public, Rove says the Republicans have a huge financial advantage in the home stretch."
