Again: Media Skew Swing State Polls to Boost Obama

Again: Media Skew Swing State Polls to Boost Obama

Quote:
This week, CBS and The New York Times teamed up with Quinnipiac University to produce a poll of three key swing states; Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania. The media is loudly trumpeting that the polls show Obama with sizable leads in each state, as well as showing him, for the first time, crossing the critical 50% threshold in the head-to-head match-up against Romney. They are deluding themselves. While the polls do show Obama with solid leads, he only gets there with a serious skewing of the poll sample. Another week, another flawed media poll, I guess.

The partisan sample of the polls were; FL D+9, OH D+8 and PA D+6. In 2008, the partisan split in Florida was D+3. In 2004, the split was R+4. Does anyone really believe that the Democrat vote in Florida this year is going to be 6 points larger than in 2008? In OH, today's poll's partisan split matches the 2008 result. In 2010, the state had an R+1 and in 2004 the state had an R+5 partisan split in the vote. The PA sample is largely in line with the vote in 2008, when the state had a D+7 split. Again, does anyone really expect Obama to match his 2008 turnout numbers?

You can always cook the numbers in a poll to get any desired result...

This will probably blow your minds:

It's funny because you guys can't seem to keep your narrative straight. Sometimes you're teapartiers/independents, sometimes your monolithic bloc republicans. I guess it all changes on the circumstances.

Romney better win. Amongst all the other reasons, I really want to see the MSM crying their eyes out and jumping out of high rise windows on election night.

People who don't march lock step screw with your head, don't they?

There is no reason to fear people who think for themselves. Try it (thinking for yourself). It's liberating!

Have the Democrats ever figured out how in the hell they came up with Obama as their nominee in 2008?
