Apparently Romney fell into the same trap. LOL
he is even stupider than anyone thought.
Wow what a dumb person. I mean really, what an extremely stupid human being.
This is a shining example of why most people in the country hate both sides and what a third party. Both sides bring the dumb on a daily basis.
I don’t understand your point. The Wisconsin poll came out long after Romney had made the decision to choose Romney.

the SOB is either blackmailing us or working for the dems or both.
They’re both guilty of believing their own good press. That’s been the downfall of many a big-headed politician.
Looking at the two posts ahead of yours, which he?
Romney won fair and square and only stupid people will not vote for him.
For anyone uncertain why the PPP poll was a trap:
Multiple times I have pointed out that PPP polls are laden with pro-Obama and pro-Democrat bias. This is not an independent organization who happens to be Democrat leaning, they are a pro-Democrat polling firm with an agenda.
Todays Missouri poll showing embattled Senate nominee Todd Akin leading Claire McCaskill by 1 point is a perfect example of this bias. Democrats greatly benefit if Akin stays in the race since he is both deeply flawed and now mortally wounded. These flaws were the reason Democrats spent millions during the primary campaign to assist Akin to victory. Now the only way Akin stays in the race is if he thinks he can still win. So PPP runs a poll at their own expense, not for a paying client, that surveys Republican turnout far higher than it has ever been in order to construct a result to their liking. The party ID in Missouri in 2008 was D +6 (Dem:40, Rep: 34, Ind: 26). In 2004 the split was R +1 (Dem: 35, Rep: 36, Ind: 29). Todays poll? R +9!!! (Dem: 30, Rep: 39, Ind: 32).
This is a poll designed to give Akin comfort that he can still win despite the near unanimous consensus of conservative, moderate, Tea Party and establishment Republicans telling him to bow out. This was not a poll to gauge actual Missourians reaction to Akins idiocy. It was an advocacy poll to buoy the candidate in order to help the Democrats. I do not care to waste my time having to greatly scrutinize every single poll from an unabashedly biased source. Hence I do not and will not blog PPP polls even if I like the results.
Nice way of accidentally stating a profound truth.
Perhaps he should have left things alone until more legitimacy had accrued to the following.
Lack of judgement is a political fatal flaw.
