Emails suggest Axelrod leaned on Gallup after unfavorable poll
Fox ^ | Sept. 6, 2012

Posted on 09/07/2012 3:59:04 AM PDT by nuconvert

Employees at the venerable Gallup polling firm suggested they felt threatened by Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod when he questioned the methodology of a mid-April poll showing Mitt Romney leading the president – according to internal emails published Thursday.

That poll showed Romney leading Obama 48-43 percent.

He plays hard ball for sure. Of course this Fox article is probably as far as this story goes.

I don’t get how axelcrap gets away with it, maybe it’s just me but if someone threatened me who was in a position like that, my goal would be to take them down. I would document everything they said and did and present it to the world.

Well, maybe a little history of who has been flattened by this administration through quasi-legal or extralegal or illegal means:

Lawsuits against several states who were simply trying to goad the feds into enforcing federal law.

Boeing being harassed because they wanted to open an assembly plant in South Carolina.

The "secured" bondholders of Chrysler and GM who had their equity stolen and given to the UAW.

Gibson guitar (google it)

GM and Chrysler dealers who gave money to the republicans and got shuttered for their trouble.

That's just off the top of my head early Friday morning. I'm sure freepers could fill pages and pages.

And when was it that the Feds started investigating Gallup for abuse of their government contracts? It wasn’t announced until this summer, so I’d think it well could have been cranked up if Axelrod didn’t get satisfaction for his complaints.

Surprise, surprise....discrediting his opponents and threatening their backers has always been the way Obama runs for office. You’d think someone would bring up this nasty strategy that he uses every time because it works.

Good for Gallup, it takes a lot of courage to “Speak Truth to Power”.

No matter how he mistreats them, his barnyard of crony capitalists will never revolt. They'll baa and bleat and moo and crow on command, and when their turn to meet the knife comes, they'll march calmly behind the barn with their master.

Here’s the funny thing... The Obamunists would be better off if they embraced the truth, that Obamagala is falling behind. They could/should lose it to put fear in their base to get out and vote. I’m more than happy for Gallup to lie for Obamagala, put their people in a false comfort zone and not vote.

Axlerod is a neidamyer.

"I’d like you to come over and explain your methodology…You got a nice poll there … would be a shame if anything happened to it…

These corrupt, Chicago, Gangsta-Thugs, are more devious, crooked and dangerous than the "Don" or any other syndicate/Mafia/Criminal Enterprise ever was; they have unlimited power of the Federal Gubmint and they regularly [ab]use it for their self-interest.

They "Got's" to go in November!!!

Don’t forget the bankers, e.g., BB&T, who weren’t allowed to leave meeting rooms until they “agreed” to sign off on making loans to unqualified people. Nothing like holding people hostage to get what you want (The Chicago Way).

I think the same thing has happened to Shadowstats. Their unemployment graph which I found profound, is now buried on their website. No longer on the home page.

My guess is they have been “pressured” (threatened) also.

" I'm sure freepers could fill pages and pages. "

And Obozo's boys will get away with it because the GOP will not investigate these occurances. The Old Boys Club will look after each other, and it is tradition that the new Administration will not go after the old Administration.

The item is being discussed on FBN by Varney right now.

True..... I was looking at the individual level, he’s a guy who needs a serious ass kicking... The abuse of power is breath taking. They make Nixon look like a saint.
