Has NewsMax gone pro Obama and pro Liberal?
Newsmax ^ | September 25, 2010 | WesternNYConservative

Posted on 09/25/2012 10:27:22 AM PDT by RochesterNYconservative

Republicans aren’t a lock to maintain control of the House, as has been assumed for months, says William Kristol, editor of The Weekly Standard. He cites a new poll from Politico/George Washington University/Battleground to buttress his contention. The survey “seems to have produced solid and non-quirky results consistent with several other surveys,” Kristol writes on his blog Read more on Newsmax.com: Weekly Standard's Kristol: Republicans Could Lose House

Newsmax? Isn't that supposed to be a conservative oriented news site on the Internet? I have seen more and more anti-Romney, negative news pieces predicting the defeat of Romney, the polls all but predicting an Obama victory, the possible loss of the Senate, and the gloomiest predictions for conservatives. Is anyone else seeing Newsmax going left?

I don’t know about Newsmax, but I have despised William Kristol from day one. He proved what he was long ago.

The demoncRAT tentacles are long and eventually they will become a threat to anyone not in the communist corner.

IMO Newsmax has always leaned more left than right. Quit reading it some time ago.

I love your observation! There better be a silent majority out there somewhere! Even the friendliest pollster can’t get Romney to break out.

If Romney can’t get a wipe out in a debate and keeps muzzling Paul Ryan (who is the only energy in the campaign) Romney is going to throw this thing.

In 2008, Obama got 43% of white vote. He's only getting 33% of white vote now...but he's leading by 9% pts overall????? Whites are still a majority in this country.

In 2008, Obama got 53% of total vote, Mcain 46%.

Give me a friggin' break. This poll is beyond ridiculous.

Didn't McStain teach these people anything? You can't take the high road with Marxists and their supporters. Baraq has reached out to groups telling them to "punish their enemies at the polls.". Since the campaign started his sycophants have accused Romney of dog cruelty, hiding money to evade taxes, of being a felon and the standard "supporting the 1% at the expense of the 99%".

This is not an ordinary election, Baraq knows that if he can win this one, it's over for the U.S. We'll be just another socialist backwater like the European countries. The fact that he's presiding over the American "managed decline" (to quote his mentor Soros) is just peachy with him. We've been a colonial power for too long , stealing from the third world, so if our standard of living has to drop to put us on equal footing with the rest of the world, then so be it.

As of 2011, Whites made up 78.1 percent of the US Population.

If Obama is getting only 33 percent of the White vote, it is mathematically IMPOSSIBLE for him to be leading by 9 points.

Whatever happened to “Carl from Oyster Bay” (Carl Limbacher)?

He was a frequent caller to talk radio in the Clinton years, then went to work for NewsMax.

Let us remember that there are some people in the conservative media who think it is better for them from business point of view to have a democrat President than a Republican President because writing angry stories about a democrat President would sell much better... For some it is only about the money...

Just like the NewsMax Forum, NewsMax itself went down the drain years ago.

This is the only way these irrelevant individuals can make the news, attacking the GOP.

I quit reading Newsmax a long time ago. It is wrong on so many things that I cannot stand it any longer. What a waste. Used to be good a couple decades back, but since Frum went over to Obama, things have steadily deteriorated.

Bill Kristol is an inside the Beltway Useful Idiot of the MSM and the poster boy for what it means to be an establishment Republican. He believes in nothing and stands for nothing but above all values his status as a “Washington Insider.” He foists Romney on us because that is what his MSM buddies told him the country wanted, namely, a moderate and not one of them “Tea Party moonbats.” Then, the second his buddies in the MSM tell him that Romney is toast, Bill Kristol pees himself and starts writing the obits. Worst of all, he starts writing the obits with an eye toward blaming the Tea Party and Ryan and everything conservative in the event the election does go badly for the Republicans.

Could the Republicans lose this, that and the other thing? Anything is possible but this campaign is far from over and is turning out to be as tough as was expected by, well, by everyone but the Republican-E types like Kristol.

WND (WorldNetDaily) kinda outed NewsMax years ago as a non-Conservative news site (and one that was in financial trouble)

Of course the Liberal PhonyCons attacked WND, even though they were correct about NerdsMax.

What they have as “Conservative” commentators would only be vaguely be considered conservative by the MSNBC crowd.

Yes...AND....whites vote at a higher percentage than blacks and hispanics...so those poll numbers are even more suspect

I believe the democrats have successfully taken the public schools and universities, produced now generations of socialist voters who resent profit and capitalism for some its excesses and abuses, leaving them ignorant of communism and socialism which brings down the whole with more dangerous abuses and excesses to liberty and freedom.

Romney teaches nothing, and assumes the ignorant are not ignorant.
