Skip to comments.Polls (Obama +11.7%) Actual Vote (Obama +0.36%) - Pre-Election Polls Are Obviously Rigged
Posted on 11/04/2008 6:38:32 PM PST by Bronco_Buster_FweetHyagh
According to the popular vote so far, out of 25,907,049 votes counted, McCain has 12,904,704 (49.82%) and Obama has 13,002,345 (50.18%), which is an Obama lead of (.36%).
Meanwhile, the Zogby/Reuters/C-Span poll shows Obama 54.1, McCain 42.7, which is an Obama lead of (11.4%)
Does anyone believe the polls are accurate? Does anyone believe that the liberal media, liberal interest groups, and activists are not intentionally misstating polling data?
"Scientific" Polls (Obama +11.4%)
Actual vote (Obama +0.36%)
The point of the “polls” is to discourage Republicans from bothering to vote; not to accurately forecast the election.
I am of the firm opinion that many major pre-election polls are adjusted (by whatever method) to act as a massive psy-op on the american voters, creating a sense of inevitability about obama’s victory. I see no other realpolitikally rational explanation.
This thread is nonsense in itself. It shows a zogby.com website but the link is to Drudge. Zogby has no such information. Drudge just went down.
Please post the actual link.
If an exit pollster asks you who you voted for, I would strongly recommend telling the truth so that our side gets the most benefit possible from a system that is rigged to help the opposition.
If this holds up the Battleground Poll will come up again as the most accurate.
C'mon, a 0.36% gap is a landslide.
Seriously, I'm so angry I could spit. The drive-by's call Rush someone on "the fringe." But who's been telling us all month to disregard the polls until the final week before the election? And who was telling us today to turn off our TVs and ignore the drive-by psy-operation?
Damn right, it was Rush.
To hell with the drive-bys. I haven't watched any TV coverage today, including FOX. Sorry Brit, the "All-Star" lies at the last debate were the final straw.
Obama isn’t going to win by 11, sure. But why can’t we wait a day to have this post? Do you really think when the NY and CA returns come blowing through (NY trickling in slooowly) that Obama’s lead will stay that small?
Well, here’s the problem I have with the polls. As a former statistics student and social science degree holder, I have a basic understanding of how statistic and polling works. The larger the sample size, the more accurate the results. All of these bullsh*t poll headlines from the liberal media are obviously bunk, because we now have a 25million sample size, and it’s basically a tie with Obama a tiny sliver ahead.
A lead of 0.36 bought with $700 Million!
A media which ignored:
Numerous other things about the man.
It is amazing it is as close as it is with all of the propaganda.
But sadly, in the end, people fell for it.
Will we ever get our nation back from the likes of propagandists such as MSDNC?

This is a dying republic. The minute McCain concedes is pulling the life-support plug. Amerika can’t afford one term of a marxist government.
In a situation where you strongly disagree with both candidates, knowing who is projected to win in advance should motivate you to vote for the loser. That way you have a clear conscience because none of the bad things that McCain would have done will happen anyway while all of the bad things that Obama will do actually do get to happen. The problem is that people don’t think about these things rationally. The objective of voting should be to be able to live with yourself afterwards and not to jump on the bandwagon of the winning team.
That’s the exact opposite of how most people think. They want to be on the winning side; to “back the strong horse”, as a certain cave-bound Obama supporter might say.
Margin of error is a word never heard about whenever a poll is givn...i say i have heard poll 5000 poll results in last 2 years i can only remember 1 or 2 ..
Hey the polls were trying to be accurate. They just did not factor in the long lines at the polls. If the lines had been normal, Acorn could have voted millions of more times and the polls would have been much more accurate.
Our election was stolen, not so much by vote, but by shrewd planning by Marxists and a lot of foreign money.
Our army did not loose the war, our college students did.
Fitting, isn’t it?
um...the polls were accurate. You based your .36 a little to early in the night. BattleGround seems to have been right on. Theirs seems to be the least biased of the bunch. Probably someone else got closer to the final number, but all of the except battle ground bounced around all over the place the weeks before hand.
