Skip to comments.Vanity - interesting fact about WasPo/ABC Daily Tracking polls (Pay attention Eeyores)
Posted on 10/28/2012 9:27:47 PM PDT by Perdogg
WaPo/ABC tracking poll has Romney up 1, 49-48. Sample moved from D+4 Fri to D+6 Sat to D+7 today. Romney up 15 w/ indies.
WaPo/ABC tracking Thur-Sat has same turnout adv for Dems as 08. In 08 Obama won by 7%, today he loses by 1.
Yep... moved from D+4 two days ago to D+7 today. Yet Romney maintained 1 point lead even through the shift.
Do you know what their ‘rationale’ is for changing the weighted average?
Why in the heck doesn’t a single poll EVER error on the side of more R’s??
Uh, to keep the not close, to too close to call.
What would be the obvious? I am not trying to sound ugly, please forgive if I do.
yea to depress the republican turnout which if you read about 30% of the posts around here seems to be working. JUST GO VOTE AND OBAMA IS TOAST.
They claim they don’t include party affiliation as a factor in deciding the composition of the sample. They just ask voters (registered or likely) and the sample just turns out that way.
Consider, if they report that O is down by 10, what will the MSM have to report all next week? Benghazi? Sandy?
Begging D's to turn out anyway?
The "dog whistle" is when the MSM starts reminding everyone that it's also about the "down ticket" races, so that if the D's are disillusioned about Obama they'd still turn out to vote for House, Senate, and Governor races.
Good work uncovering that.
Axelrod must have made his phone call to them earlier this week.
Less than a week left before the major pollsters are forced to start reporting accurate numbers.
Heh! I expect the poll to be D+12 by the end of the week!
It’s all an expectations game...
Well, this is PPP. What do you expect? I know what you’re saying, though.
If they actually showed how far ahead Romney is ahead, the Dem base would not show up and they’d get slaughtered in the down ticket as well.
Let them play their D + eleventy-billion games. That will make it all the sweeter when Obummer gets absolutely crushed. These polls only help our side, as if the R’s think its close it motivates them more to go the extra mile to kick Emperor Nero Kardashian Narcissus to the curb.
Also the campaign contributions would dry up.
King Barry needs to pay for his new palace in Hawaii.
Wow. You verified the democrat over sampling?
If so, that’s just bizarre. They just keep upping the Ds in every poll to make sure Romney stays down. Going to be some shocked lefties on Nov 6th lol

All very well, until the Ds start talking about the telephone polls being the real thing and the Nov 6 ballot doesnt matter . . .
It is the same old game. If Republicans are winning most polls will show it a neck and neck race until the last week when they have to get their numbers to look sort of accurate so next election they can point to that last week and say see how accurate we were.
If a dem is winning they always show it.
The problems for the republican in reading polls before the last week of the election is deciding whether the republican is winning or is it close (which usually means a republican win).
If this thing was even 1 point win for Obama the media would be shouting it from the rooftops.
