Poll: Obama opens substantial leads in key swing states (Yeeeep! over samples dems 9-11 points)
CBS ^ | .September 26, 2012 | Brian Montopoli, Sarah Dutton, Fred Backus, Anthony Salvanto, Jennifer De Pinto

Another heavily skewed poll for the messiah. This one is especially pathetic given it is three different states they claim will have 9 points or more dem voting advantage turnout.


TOPICS: Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS: elections; oversample

Please , this is incredibly false. This was in Newsmax today.
The state by state polling shows no such Zer0 surge.

Obama knows he’s losing so he’s setting up the news to carry false polling info in order to justify the riots after he loses.

Let me guess, they opened up the news with this news of the skewed CBS poll as top story that Obama opens up huge leads in swing states ?

but ? no real reporting of what really happened in Libya and how the whole region is becoming unstable ?


ahhhhhh yes, the good old days when there was real reporting of Abu Ghraib 24/7 for 30 days straight when no one really died, just offended. Sarcasm.

I want Obama’s poll numbers artificially high come election day so our side don't sleep through it and theirs does.

The only problem with this is that such a high false ‘knowledge’ is built into the idiot constituency that when he does lose, they are going to claim cheating and riot.

What I’d call a National Burger King Hissy Fit (because we can’t really say what it is).

I don’t think he has Fox News on his side. I still think this should be a sign that conservatives need to make more news channels for themselves. Conservatives act like they can’t afford to begin their own news channels. By now, we should have about 5 conservative news channels to combat the Obama channels. Why we don’t? I am not sure. Maybe conservatives who pay for conservative news like radio better.

Unless and until we conservatives figure out how to get into the game with communications, we will always be reacting to what the NY Times decides is today’s news.

Talk radio gave us some measure of impact during the 90s and Fox News did the same during the Bush years.

Your right. The same tv news programs have been in the tank for Democrats for decades but conservatives (rich ones) don’t do a thing except complain. I think most conservatives enjoy complaining rather than work to get things done.

Man, we seriously need a conservative news channel or two. Maybe Glenn Beck can get one going; he’s already trying it on the internet. Wish he could get together with some big money conservative backers and get a true conservative cable TV station going. Fox News is now getting into the joke territory. Swinging far too left for my tastes. Find myself zapping it with the remote more and more.

Citizen journalism works. It requires a sacrifice of time, though.

Yep, no need to go to the polls. You can just sleep all day, as you usually do, because The Messiah will win every swing state without your vote. (We’ll tiptoe out when we head for the polls to cast our useless ballots...and we will be watching for the dead voters and felon voters while we are at it.)

These false polls are actually COUNTERPRODUCTIVE for the Democrats. Why? Because many low motivation Democrats will use it as an easy excuse not to vote. “Hey, why vote when the polls show Obama easily winning in my state.”

It also works to hide their vote cheating, since people are conditioned to hearing that obama is ahead to way ahead, they expect him to win or minimum, to have a very close race and the win.

Very dangerous, but they haven't had a reason to care about their blatant propaganda for a long time. No competition, no check and balance, one party rule and it is accepted until proven otherwise.

“These false polls are actually COUNTERPRODUCTIVE for the Democrats. Why? Because many low motivation Democrats will use it as an easy excuse not to vote.”

That’s why you’ll see all the MSM-sponsored polls begin to narrow after the debates. Two reasons for this:

1. They don’t want to suppress the leftist vote.
2. It makes for a better story (increased readership).

Look for this recurring headline come Oct 10 onward: “Romney closes gap in major swing states.”

ACTUALLY, these polls are not skewed, as much as I hate to admit it. If they polled 9% more dim0s, that is correct because there are more dim-0s than Republicans.

NOW, if you want to talk CONSERVATIVES, at least people who claim to be conservative and probably are, in their PERSONAL lives, that is a different story. There are approximately twice as many conservatives, as there are liberals.

The purpose of Liberal Agenda Media, (LAM), Polls, is to:
1.) discourage Conservatives from voting in an up coming election;
2.) discourage Conservatives from financially supporting their candidates;
and 3.) publicly promote the idea that most voters agree that Socialism will make America more successful.

Thus, LAM Polls are analogous to a dam holding back the floodwaters of REALITY from those who still bother to read, listen or watch the LAM.

Since 1/3 of Americans will vote early this year, the longer the LAM can keep the LAM Polls skewed, the greater their chances of fooling the early voters.

There are three ways in which conservative discouragement works: depressing weakly motivated voters who might vote for Romney; encouraging social conservatives and libertarian conservatives, i.e., “hard” Santorum and Bachmann supporters and “soft” Paul supporters, to vote for third party candidates of the Constitution and Libertarian Parties; and generally weakening the Republican turnout to protect Democrat incumbents, especially in the Senate.
