Did CNN Rig Its Own Poll?
Breitbart ^ | 10 Sep 2012 | Mike Flynn

It is surprising, though, that Independents make up only 5% of the sample. Tellingly, Romney leads this group by 14 points.

All these polls showing Barack Hussein has a comfortable lead may have a positive side....it will prevent many lazybones democRats to not bother voting.

Recall that the Rat Media tried to use their fraudulent polls as “proof” Bush stole 2 elections.

Screw the Pravda Media. It is something from an Orwellian/Stalinist nightmare.

Of course they rig their polls. CNN polling has always been weighted in favor of democrats.

Don’t worry about the bounce so soon after the dem convention, that’s pretty much normal and it will fade pretty fast.

What we do have to look forward to is two blithering, big govt idiots trying to out stupid each other at the upcoming presidential debates. Those debates will have extremely high ratings and sway the electorate far more than the conventions, especially this year on the independent and swing voters which will probably swing into moron #2s side if he can keep from exposing too much of his liberal idiocy.

Too harsh? Well, this is where we’re at these days.

Here is how I see the political ID poll data breakdown for the CNN/ORC national poll published September 10th, 2012:

The original national CNN data, 709 Likely Voters for September 07-09, 2012:

Demographics Republican Democrat Independent Poll Numbers
Romney 96% 3% 54% Romney 46%
Obama 2% 97% 40% Obama 52%
Neither/Other 2% 0% 4% Neither/Other 2%
No Opinion: 1% 0% 2% No Opinion: 1%
100.0% 100.0% 100.0% Total: 100.0%


CNN/ORC poll, September 7-9 2012, PDF - Page #21 of 48, (Question 1/1A).


The derived poll data presented below for the same national CNN, Likely Voters, n = 709

Rounding the below by plus or minus (0.49%) yields above published (rounded) CNN two digit poll data.


Demographics Republican Democrat Independent   Poll Numbers     Adjusted Numbers  
Romney 96.47% 2.51% 53.51% Romney 45.97% Romney   50.70% Romney
Obama 1.51% 97.49% 40.49% Obama 51.51% Obama   46.80% Obama
Neither/Other 1.51% 0.00% 3.95% Not Sure 1.71% Neither/Other   1.71% Neither/Other
No Opinion: 0.51% 0.00% 2.05% Do not know: 0.81% No Opinion:   0.79% No Opinion:
  100.0% 100.0% 100.0% Total: 100.0%     100.0%  
                   
                   
        Results       New Weighting  
        (Weighting)          
    `              
Poll Information     Republican 28.70% Republican     35.00%  
CNN     Democrat 38.96% Democrat     35.00%  
9/7-9/2012     Independent 32.35% Independent     30.00%  
MOE 3.68%                  
709 LV       100.0%       100.0%  
page #21/48                  
                   
                   



Looks as if CNN/ORC have published a Democrat [ +10.26%] Likely Voter oversampled poll. Just for fun, at the far right of the spreadsheet data is a "what-if" the political ID breakdown was (35%R, 35%D, 30%I) - Romney on top by ~4%.

“sky is falling because of Hussein’s lead in the polls trolls”

The Poll Trolls might say, “Yeah but, this is a media poll, just like the article says!”.

To which I say, “Yeah but, the “legitimate” polls are not that different!”.

See how I did that?

Discernment provides that regardless of similarities of polling in past losses......Obama really is in deep dodo.

Yep, it’s rigged, and maybe even more than Breitbart reports. It’s at least 8 points off according to....

and here’s more on the poll from a thread I posted earlier...

CNN is part of the media demoralization campaign to get us to believe Obama is inevitable. I ain’t buying their phony BS.

didn’t I hear that there were now more registered GOP than Dems? If that is true how does CNN explain this monstrosity?

I always thought they (and all the other liberal media) always rigged their polls.

Another tell is that not one Democrat was uncommitted to a major candidate.

Does romney stand for anything beyond polling? 2008 was an election about issues and we paired an old man with a dingbat. 2012 is again about issues - now even more important - and our leader is...exactly who is our leader?

I am going to put this on my protest signs and on sides of my truck!

The press is the enemy of our Republic. And I read somewhere that nearly all the press people pay NO income taxes, or they are cheating on their income taxes. PRESS PEOPLE ===PAY YOUR TAXES ! You will be turned in!
