Skewed polls indicate Obama's
in trouble - not Romney

American Thinker, by Keith Edwards

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 9/27/2012 7:38:32 AM

Certain media polls indicating Obama is ahead of Mitt Romney by as much as 10 to 12 points in swing states seem to spell disaster for Romney, but what they really say about the Obama campaign may just surprise you? The absurdity of the skewed sample models in those polls is one thing, but what conservatives need to understand is that polls skewed to heavily favor Democrats logically point to one very important fact - Obama is in big trouble. For one thing, Democrats and the liberal media are taking a huge chance

Absolutely! If zippy is up by double digits in Ohio, why is he campaigning there?

And they assume that everyone agrees with their position, so they are campaigning in Ohio and claiming that Romney opposes Roe v Wade--I think much of Ohio does, too. They are telling big lies--that they are the party protecting the Middle Class, for example.

Mmmmmm...I don't recall that, #3. I just recall McCain behaving like a complete nimrod. In fact, I remember reading reputable pollsters and thinking this is bad.

I agree with the author...I think he's in big trouble and I think he knows it. My mother posits that he's acting like someone who doesn't care if he loses (not moving to center, etc.), and who is bored with the whole thing, and wants to become some world hooha, like Sec. Gen. to the UN.

#7, I'm also with you and the author. I think he has a long held distaste for work in general...seeing as he's never really had to do much heavy lifting all his life. He wants to be a political rock star, period. It's the wife who wants to keep on the Perk Train, and I'd venture a guess she's telling him on an hourly basis...just to make sure he understands.

Obama is bone lazy; lazier than he is ideological. After his most excellent socialist riff in the WH, he can smell the life-long pampering of a presidential retirement in his $35 mil Hawaiian mansion, entertaining the choom gang and playing golf with his prostitute-chasing BFF. He’s had enough of checking off boxes on presidential papers.

Obozo's extreme weakness: It's the economy Stupid...

ObozoX has the economy in absolute total failure mode; think it is bad now, extreme depression/ inflation are about to hit ... only the desperate act of the treasury QE3 effort printing money and pumping $40 billion per month into the economy is holding it the failure back for Obozo until after the election..

Here is the problem defined pretty simply …. There is $2.5 trillion/yr income and $4 Trillion/yr in expenses, difference /shortfall $1.5 Trillion … resulting in massive 16 Trillion in debt and it is growing exponentially …

To make simpler to understand knocks the zeros off the $trillions in each case ... so say from above your home income is $250,000 per year and your expenses are $400,000 /year .. your debt is already $1,600,000 with interest .. think anyone would loan you money or that you can keep this up very long

Anyone with a household budget knows you cannot borrow your way out of massive debt that is out of control, like the gov is trying to do … the point has already been reached where no country will loan America money and the treasure QE3 printing money will only drive runaway inflation.

To survive this; taxes would have to be raised 50% and there can be no 47% of Americans that pay no taxes …. may be time to declare some of the debt null/void and let the crap hit the fan

And will the skewed polls incent many dims to stay home on election day? 'They don't need my vote.'

Interesting possibility, but nah, dims don't know how to read and they think polls are something you would catch fish with if the government didn't already give the fish to you.

The pollsters know that Americans have notoriously short memories. It doesn't matter that they skew the polls this far out from the election. They will, by necessity, become much more accurate when we are less than 2 weeks out from the election. If for no other reason than to salvage their representation. Also, anyone who would pay attention to a polling service that was affiliated with a media organization is foolish. Everyone knows that the major news media are politically biased, and yet people are expected to believe that the polling service will somehow be immune from that bias. Any polling data coming from a service with ABC, CBS, NBC, New York Times, Washington Post, attached to it, should be immediately suspect, and IMO, immediately discarded.

I am hopeful that talk of the polls being skewed is correct. This is why Dick Morris cheers me up. However, the nagging question I have, and no one seems to ask,is, why would pollsters, who do this for a living, depend on customers, and are more successful when they are more accurate, risk losing business for being so wrong? Or, is what we are seeing the customers interpretation or the results of what the cusomer was looking for? I just think that successful pollsters are measured by their accuracy and would not want to damage their credibility. Someone help me out with this.

#19, Rasmussen and Gallup are polling organizations that require accuracy in order to attract clients, and their polls show the race even (or with Romney ahead when "leaners" are counted, as Rasmussen's 9/26 report indicated).

The other polling organizations are affiliated with left-leaning news organizations and universities. They do not need clients for their polls, and they both place a higher value on promoting Obama than they do on presenting the truth. Since nobody believes their "news" any longer, they must now package their lies in the form of "scientific polls".

#19 You will notice that the pollsters are always using words like "volatile" or "moving", or they qualify their data with phrases like "this poll represents only a snapshot of the race". Their reputations depend on just one set of polling data. The last polling data they release before the actual election. Until then, they can give out any numbers they want. These early polls are their opportunity to influence a national election, and don't think for a moment, that they don't know this.

Here's a thought...

What if Obama really knew he was losing and colluded with the journolisters to skew polls everywhere so that when he actually loses by a small margin, he can sue ala Gore that somehow the Presidency was stolen from him. Would be par for the course for most democrat politicians.

What the LSM is doing is suppressing the Dem vote. Arrogance prevents them from seeing beyond the end of their noses.

The 47%, the Takers, are lazy, and that's the point the LSM refuses to acknowledge. If the Takers can sit at home in front of their 60" flat screens on November 6, while continuing to stay on the dole, keep getting their cut of 0bama's stash, they will. The more the Takers believe their Marxist benefactor will keep stealing from the Makers and giving to the Takers, the better it is for us.

Sooner or later, the LSM is going to have to change horses in the middle of the stream, acknowledge that 0b@$tard is losing big. By then it will be too late. I, for one, am going to fall off my chair laughing when they all start falling out of the saddle and drowning.

Mark Twain said there are 3 types of lies; lies, d@amned lies, and statistics. Polls can easily fall into the 3rd category.

Polling companies don't just call up a set number of folks. When they get some one to answer they have to figure out what demographic they fit in, and THEN they do their statistical adjustment to weight the response for that group. That is, an elderly person will have more weight in the final result than a college kid since older folks turn out to vote more consistantly. So this is where the mischief fits into these polls.

And yes, talk about obumbler being well ahead WILL make many of his supporters complacent and less likely to go vote more than once, even not at all. Such behavior will hurt socialist voter turnout.

I wish Cavuto would get the memo that the poll results are all badly skewed. I watched his show yesterday and felt like slitting my wrists. Obviously, Fox News is gradually going over to the Dark Side, but it's a shame that their on-air conservative personalities are parroting the garbage in / garbage out polls.

#18 has it exactly right. Polls conducted by or paid by the MSM are by their very nature suspect. They are intended to reinforce and support the ideological leanings of the procurer.

The antidote is to find and promote the legitimate, objective and independent pollsters.

At the very least, you should inspect the polls internals before you consider their overall accuracy. Namely, what is the makeup of their sample, and how do their demographic subgroups break down. For example, don't just look at oversampling of one party, but how do the subgroup votes lean. When I see that Independents and the Middle Class have swung to Romney in a big way, it pretty much tells the real story.

#19: Good question but I think they are producing the numbers that their ‘customers’ want. Most poll partners/customers are the MSM and university endowments.

Rasmussen is the only one I take seriously; I take Gallop with a grain of salt and just fume when I read the other pollster’s results.

#11: I think #8 is referring to where the campaign money is being spent. IE, if Obama wasn’t worried about Ohio he wouldn’t be spending so much time and advertising money there and the same for Iowa.

When the smoke clears on the morning of November 8th, the post game show will begin and the light will show bright and clear what the MSM tried to pull off and America will better understand how close we came to annihilating ourselves!

FWIW: When a candidate leaves politics, they keep whatever is in their campaign fund as personal funds and I believe it is also tax free.

Rush has explained the purpose of polls -- to see how well the propaganda's working. Not at all hard to believe, is that?

#2: Oh, that's a knee-slapper! I laughed out loud. "Accountability." Ack -- I think I hurt myself!

#7: IIRC, the UN Charter bars a former US President from becoming UN Sec Gen. Of course, we all know how much that would mean to anybody. Unless Hillary wants it enough to stop him? I doubt that, though.

#11: I think #8's point is that where and how much the campaigns advertise tells us how they think their candidate is doing. The point makes sense.

#22: Good points. Thanks.

#26: IMHO, a lot of Dem voters will turn out or not depending on how they "feel" on election day [mostly about Obama personally -- are they "disappointed"? bored? "wasn't voting for him 'last time' enough?" Remember Hoffer -- an excuse can last a lifetime.]. Flor them, that will count far more than any polling data they've heard.

#3 - I recall McCain leading the polls in September. It wasn't until the bank meltdown and McCain's pathetic performance on that issue that the tide turned. Barry said and did nothing (as usual)and appeared competent while McCain put on his Superman cape and crashed into a wall. It's only the past two years we've seen these wild, irrrational sampling discrepancies. As one writer pointed out yesterday, pollsters would have you believe that Democrat voter turnout this year will far exceed 2008. Either they're delusional or they're intentionally lying to push an agenda. They've destroyed their credibilty either way.

This is a crawl over broken glass election to oust this incompetent fraud. Every vote for Romney from the most conservative district in Texas to the lefty Berkley, California counts. Don't forget that BHO is a rabble rousing community organizer who would love nothing more than civil unrest when he gets his butt kicked. The electoral college vote will win the election, but the popular vote is very important too. In addition to the red states, I'm convinced that the deep blue states will be riddled with voter fraud to boost the popular vote so the lefties can demagogue a Romney victory/mandate. I'm from Illinois and renting a stretch limousine to get every possible voter to the polls. I'll be happy to be branded a "limousine conservative" that day!

The skewed polls are to encourge o's base. He can't excite them this election. So he's using push polls and lying media to push his base to vote.

And #7 tell your Momma o can not be Sec. Gen of the UN any more than bill and hill could. We are members of the UN Security Council. No one from any UN Security Council Country may be UN Sec. Not Russia, or England or China, etc... I hope and pray that was clear. ..learned that when people were posting that as bill and hill's aspiration.

It worries me because I think #3 is right. I was certain people were lying to the pollsters in 2008 for fear of being deemed racist and Obama was going to lose despite the polls showing him winning.

The best thing we have going for us is a burning desire to be rid of him. I don't think polls, skewed or not, will keep us from voting. But disillusioned Dems may stay home.

Speaking of Fox, I was extremely disappointed in Steven Hayes last night on the panel carrying on about the polls moving to the Empty Chair. I can only go with what I see, this time 4 years ago all I saw here in central DE were 0/b bumper stickers and yard signs. To date I have seen 1 0/b yard sign and two bumper stickers, 2 R&R yard signs and two bumper stickers. That is about as scientific as most of the polls out there.

These ridiculous, skewed polls could be the groundwork for a massive election fraud effort by the Dems. Here in Nevada, we now have on-line voter registration along with automatic registration at DMV, Welfare, . Food Stamps, etc, etc. Soon the Dems will have automatic registration when you are booked into jail or when you buy a crack pipe. We also have early voting, mail-in voting, absentee voting and proxy voting for the dead, felons and illegals and all the J.K. Rowling characters. If we still had one way and one place to register and one day and one place to vote, like we had for 200 years and the rest of the world still has, the Dems would never win an election - and they know it. We are the ones who are disenfranchised by the Dems drove these non contributors with absolutely no skin in the game.

BTW, I believe Romney will win going away. If he doesn't, it's over in this country.

#42, In my county the Republicans don't even have a headquarters set up and when I went to the major city headquarter website they haven't even updated since early July. Republican party is not serious about winnng.

It's about time this was brought to the forefront. Media polls are mathematical garbage and are designed to influence, not inform. If you bombard humans with a message long enough, they will eventually accept it as a truth. Obama's media propaganda machine must be countered lest we see another loss.

What No.1 said, just why IS he campaigning as though he is behind? I remember in '08, just days before the election there was a story about BO taking time OFF & body-surfing in Hawaii! I thought that was extremely odd & apathetic behavior for a candidate - if he really wanted to win. I thought then, that either he knew what the outcome was going to be or he didn't care one way or the other about winning. This time he seems to care...?

Either way we will have a great show with a cast of thousands.

Helpful hint: Arrange to be 'Out of Town' around that time.

Unlike the McCain/Obozo election there are NO bumper stickers or yard signs around here in Ft. Worth.

I've seen only ONE Obozo bumper sticker and ONE Ron Paul bumper sticker.

I think everyone is just depressed, joyless and wants this fiasco to end...like we're in this giant, Commie state. So, this is what it feels like to be North Korean?

There is nothing you can do about the polls. So why worry? Hopefully, the Romney team has competent polling on board. As a voter, you cannot let the polls effect your emotions. If you're a conservative like me, we tend to hang up the phone when that pollster calls. On top of that, what kind of people are attracted to jobs calling people at home. I don't mean that in a denigrating way. Work is work and I admire those who might do this job to feed their family. But for the most part, the call center people are Democrats. So, even if they had ideological parity on polling, there would always be bias in the process.

@ 27, Not only Cavuto, but the entire Fox stable is no different than the other news outlets. They receive "news items" from either the Assoc. press, or Reuters and their producers write the dialogue and voila,you have the "news." Same info,different slant.

Read Ms. Lucianne's headlines,or Drudge's and thats what they report. Even Rush reports on the same info. It is the interpretation that makes the difference.

As for the polls, the Cables would go out of business with them. Lying has been elevated to an art form,so a rose by any other name..........!

so many ideas so little space, I have said here time and again, watch how these samples are made up, watch the +/- %. If +/- is at 4 or higher it is a garbage poll. This is all psych ops. I will crawl over broken glass to vote against Obama.

Now weird observation - there are no, I mean no political signs out here in Lehigh Valley, Northeastern PA. We are usually blanketed. My hubs and I can't believe 40 days before an election no signs. No lawn signs in former Obama supporters lawns, nothing. One idea we had was that the unions locally don't have the money or manpower for the blanketing?

Also here is something I found encouraging- PA is requiring ID at the polls, so maybe just maybe my late father in law, who was a union steelworker, might not be voting posthumerously this time.

Finally I too have wondered if this poll meddling is not a desparate way for Obama to say the election is illegitimate if he loses. Don' t think it will work, but he is living in cloudcookoo land these days anyway.

Another thing Rush said on his show yesterday (in addition to comment posted above), was that Obama may be setting up a situation for his supporters to riot if Obama loses (big), because the polls told the riot prone crowd he was far ahead of Romney. They are going to think the election was stolen from him/them.

There is one more thing that I believe is slanting the majority of these polls. David Axelgrease. Remember, a few weeks ago, he complained to Gallup that there sampling wasn't right or something. To me, that became a veiled threat that they, Gallup, had better start showing Obozo in a better light or something bad just might happen to them. And you can bet a bent nickel that the rest of the news outlet associated polls promptly fell in line. Think about it. We're seeing poll numbers that we haven't seen all year long. And they show that Obozo is flying ahead at an unbelievable rate. Well, it is unbelievable simply because it's all false and made up. The only poll I will believe in is the one that comes out on Nov. 7.

Can anyone give me an earthly reason why we should pay any attention to polls? They're a dime a dozen. They're like expert witnesses. You get yours and I'll get mine. Politicians should, and do, rely only on their own internal pollsters. The rest of it is (word of the day) noise. We should fight each day like we're down by 10 and are relentlessly clawing our was back to the top.

I live in the Virginia suburbs of Washington DC, and it is prime Obama country around here (large number of black folks and a high concentration of government employees & contractors). Yes, there are Obama 2012 stickers and yard signs to be found, but not even remotely close to four years ago, when this area was papered over with Obama 2008 signs/stickers etc.

I do not believe that Obama is running very close to Romney in VA, just based on what I've seen.

"he said Mr. Obama told him,
“While Michelle and the two girls go play tennis on Saturday afternoons,
I go in the Oval Office, pretend I’m going to work, and then I switch on ‘Homeland.’ ”
This alone should be grounds for impeachment.

I hope this is so. I am not naive, but Obama and the media are doing things that make me think things are not as rosey as they would have us beleive. But,I remember news when Chet Huntley and David Brinkley, Walter Cronkite (Before he had to tell us his liberal opinions)Howard K. Smith were on air. A lot more honest reporting!. Now it is a joke. I think it is obvious and everyone(and they) know it. So Why? I think they are all desperate to protect the "down ticket" candidates to get more of them elected and not blown out by collateral damage.

Regarding yard signs, bumper stickers and such I live in SC but just south of Charlotte NC and have yet to see a single 0 yard sign and only one bumper sticker.

In 08, 0 signs and stickers were everywhere. Also, I went to the Romney Campaign site and there are no campaign offices listed in SC at all! Plenty in NC so I guess that's where they're spending the campaign money. Just my observation FWIW...

I live in SF bay area and we are not seeing the Obama stickers that we saw 4 yrs ago. I know it will still be Obama ahead double digits but I think the turn out will be much lower.

One of our employees, an African American man, told me that he was very disenchanted with Obama. Doesn't think he will vote for Romney but also won't vote for Obama. He thinks Obama spends too much time trying to be cool. He was very upset with the way Obama handled the Libya attack. He said to me 'Bush would have answered these guys with a bomb.'

During the televised debates there is no way that Obama and Biden are going to make the American people believe that Romney and Ryan are scarier then they are. Remember Obama now has a record that he cannot run on, of which his signature legislative achievement, Obama care is unpopular with more then half of the American people.

It's not going to happen as in the debates, Romney will come across as a Reagan like figure, will be calling Obama on his lies, and will be telling the American people the truth. Obama can't do that, so he will loose the debates in enough people's minds to overcome the liberal media bias. Same with Ryan over Biden.

If the first debate goes down the tubes for Obama so badly that the liberal media can't bail him out, look for him to find some reason to pull out of the subsequent debates.

The Pentagon is shuttling specialized military equipment overseas to aid efforts to locate the black box recorder which could provide critical clues to what happened the night that Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 went missing. U.S. Pacific Command Commander NavyAdm. Samuel J. Locklear has issued an order to ship the equipment to the western Australia town of Perth in case a debris site for the Malaysian plane is located within the next few weeks.

Russia is paying a heavy price for its annexation of Crimea, with its financial markets crashing, economic growth falling, and foreign investors and citizens pulling money out of the country at a frenetic pace. Though the economic pain has been more self-inflicted than the result of limited sanctions imposed by the U.S. and European Union, the sanctions have helped create panic that has prompted investors and businesses to pull $70 billion out of the country in the first quarter after having withdrawn $63 billion in all of 2013. “The deteriorating geopolitical situation has already had a negative impact on Russia’s

Nothing has qualified yet, but it would be no surprise if as many as a half-dozen proposals reach the Nov. 4 ballot, setting up what could become a national proxy war on energy development akin to last year’s debate on gun control. “I think this will be the test case.

What makes the Crimean invasion ominous isn’t its strategic significance but what it signals about Russia’s commitment to a confrontational posture with the west. The tenor of Kremlin propaganda makes compromise impossible: The Nazis are now in charge in Ukraine, backed by perverts in the U.S. and EU, imperiling ethnic Russians in all former Soviet satellite states. Having taken that line, how does Putin re-join the G-7, especially with (weak) sanctions now in effect? He’s setting Russia up as a counterweight

Vladimir Putin thinks he has a winning formula to restore the global clout of the old Soviet Union. Contemporary Russia is a chaotic, shrinking, and petrodollar-fed kleptocracy. It certainly lacks the population, the vast resources, and territory of its former communist incarnation. For Putin, restoring a lot of the latter without necessarily the former failed communist state makes sense — especially if he can do it on the cheap with passive-aggressive diplomacy and not getting into a shooting war with the far more powerful U.S. If there is a downside for Putin annexing the Crimea in the short term, no

President Obama famously fills out an NCAA March Madness basketball bracket ever year, but it’s nothing like the one recently circulated by campus conservative activist Caleb Bonham. Mr. Bonham asked students at George Mason University to fill out a bracket ranking the “elite eight” Obama administration missteps, which he called the “Obama March Madness Scandal Edition.” “Which scandal will win the big dance?” says the YouTube video posted Friday by Campus Reform.

Obamacare turned four years old Sunday. But unlike a human offspring, which would developing by leaps and bounds, the poor little government program is still peeing the bed. When historians recount the life of Obamacare (likely to be cut not-so-tragically short fairly soon), they might just start with how America’s comedians, all mostly liberal and easy on the president for five full years, took aim at him shortly after the invasive health care overhaul debuted. Like the seven-minute interview with comedian Zach Galifianakis on his hit Internet webcast “Between Two Ferns,” in which President Obama asks his bearded interviewer, “Have

In May 2012, when the Internal Revenue Service proposed its rules for Americans to get government subsidies for health insurance, officials acknowledged that a legal quirk needed to be fixed: The Affordable Care Act was written in a way that inadvertently denied such help to some people who live apart from spouses who abuse them, are in prison or are on the cusp of a divorce. The problem is that the law’s authors, in creating tax credits to help pay for health plans bought through the new insurance marketplaces, had overlooked the fact that some married people file their tax

The 2012 Republican presidential nominee said Obama didn´t have the foresight to anticipate Russia´s moves and should have been working earlier with allies to make clear the penalties that Russia would face if it moved into Ukraine. Romney did acknowledge that such steps may not have been enough though to hold back Russia President Vladimir Putin. "Had we communicated those things, there´s always

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,

First daughter Sasha Obama cut a stylish figure in jeans and shades as the Obama girls visited the Great Wall of China today. Michelle Obama, Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, were left alone to explore the Mutianyu section of the historical landmark in the northern Beijing suburbs though Chinese police officers looked on protectively. The three walked a stretch of the wall that looks out to a massive rock inscription on a hillside that reads in Chinese: ´Loyal to Chairman Mao.´ The country has been fascinated by Mrs Obama´s ´elegance´ during the weeklong visit to the country to promote educational

Most Supreme Court watchers are fixated these days on Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby—the important challenge to the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate scheduled for argument Tuesday. And why wouldn’t they be? With its potent mix of religion, sex, Obamacare, and prayerful corporations, it’s the blockbuster case of the term. It is also a crucial test of Chief Justice John Roberts’s leadership on the Supreme Court. Just two years ago, Roberts cast the deciding vote to largely uphold the Affordable Care Act. While the country remains divided over whether he acted like a traitor or a statesman, all would have to agree

In a constituent meeting gone awry that was captured on shaky, amateur video, embattled Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) berated a group of local activists who oppose amnesty legislation, suggesting they were racist and saying they didn´t have “any damn facts.” “You´re telling me what people have told you? You don´t have any damn facts!” Ellmers exploded at one of the activists when he said that employers – who often claim a labor shortage to argue for amnesty – frequently don´t post job openings in that region.

"Never in my lifetime have I seen a law that is helping so many people be so vilified," Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) told a conference call on Friday. She talked about the millions of people in her state who are benefiting from the law that Republicans have tried to repeal 54 times. "This is a huge success, this law. I´m saying that. We had a terrible rollout, it slowed us up, but it´s all falling into place now and the Republican answer is very, very simple -- let´s repeal it and take away all these benefits from people. And that´s just gonna

As President Obama prepares to visit Saudi Arabia on Friday, many in the Middle East are wondering why he is making a trip with no discernible purpose. No one is quite sure what Obama is supposed to do while in Riyadh. According to the White House, in addition to a one-on-one talk with 90-year-old Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdul-Aziz, Obama hopes to attend a summit of the Gulf Cooperation Council. But there may be no summit — since the GCC is now badly split. The council’s members are Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Qatar. One bloc — the

President Barack Obama is seeking to abolish two highly successful missile programs that experts say have helped the U.S. Navy maintain military superiority for the past several decades. The Tomahawk missile program—known as “the world’s most advanced cruise missile”—is set to be cut by $128 million under Obama’s fiscal year 2015 budget proposal and completely eliminated by fiscal year 2016, according to budget documents released by the Navy. In addition to the monetary cuts to the program, the number of actual Tomahawk missiles acquired by the United States would drop significantly—from 196 last year to just 100 in 2015. The number
