Skip to comments.New CBS Poll: Obama +5! As expected, look at the internal sampling for bias.

This seems like a fair and reasonable sample to me.
Total Respondents 1133 Republicans 326 Democrats 437 Independents 370
More often than not, a person categorizing themselves as ‘independant’ tend to be nothing more than liberals ashamed to say they’re Democrats.
actually the sample size was 41% D 31% R and 28% I, troll.

The results from a sampling like that makes no sense... I’m certain there was some lying and fudging going on... if the intent was to demoralize the Conservative voters... forgetaboutit!
sorry about that, I haven’t had caffine today, sorry lol! I misread your post.
and if talk-radio is any indication, liberals frequently identify themselves as “life-long republicans”.
I think he was being sarcastic.
With the differences in this election, and particularly with the selectionof Sarah Palin on the McCain ticket...that simply will not work...and they know it. Thus the all out, vicious attacks on her in concert with their junk-science polls.
But the more the MSM and DNC try to either smear, besmirch, or twist Sarah Palin's words and experience, the more people all over the country will be drawn to her.
It's because of something the left and the elite cannot comprehend and are blind to.
Sarah connects with everyday people. She was mother who wanted to make a difference in her community and joined the PTA and it went from there. She didn't need an ivy league degree in Political Science, she didn't need a law degree, she didnt need rich connections, she just needed honesty, integrity, her faith, and a desire to serve.
She didn't seek wealth, power, or high position...it just happened and that connects with most Americans of all stripes (outside of the leftists and elitists whom she threatens) who in their hearts want to try and help their communities and improve things for their kids.
As a result, Sarah Palin is shaking the Democratic leftist-liberal house to its foundation, and bringing it down. She and her family, their faith, their values, and their story represent the absolute refutation of all the tired old liberal mantras and victimology that they malignantly use to mentally, pshycologically, and financially enslave whole classes of people.
From women's rights, to family values, to gun rights, to abortion, to energy policy, to taxation, to envrionmentalism, and on and on...she is a wrecking ball to the leftist, liberal, socialist house.
This is a total cBS poll.
see post #7
An Independent is also someone who lives in the midst of liberals... and doesn't want to take the heat liberals emit when they find out a conservative is in what they consider their territory.
The truth is, the only polls that matter now are battleground state polls like those from florida, ohio, michigan, pennsylvania, virginia, etc. National polls are meaningless.
Nice try See B.S.
This poll over sampled Rats by a large margin.
Today’s polls should give a better indication of any true movement.
by about 2-3%.
People here seems to always forget that there ARE more democrats than republicans. So the polls will reflect that.
That’s the way I took it. Not sure how you could take it any other way.
