I am puzzled. There seems to be a significant number of runway excursions in all makes.

Why is this? Are pilots crabbing all the way to touchdown and getting yanked off to the side?

Personally I exclusively use a forward slip in any crosswind. That way the nose is lined up with the center stripe from a mile out and only managing pitch for airspeed rather than trying to pitch and yaw simultaneously right at the end.

Jim B,
You mean a Side slip. A forward slip is used to rapidly lose altitude. A slide slip keeps the airplane aligned with the runway in a crosswind.
