Media Malpractice: NYT Poll Pushes Absurd Democratic Turnout Model
Breitbart ^ | 09/25/2012 | Dustin Hawkins

Posted on 09/26/2012 7:09:47 AM PDT by nhwingut

In what could be considered nothing short of media malpractice, the New York Times and CBS News published three state polls by Quinnipiac University that shows Democratic advantages in Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania at levels never before seen.

The allegedly scientific poll is said to give a clear idea of how the election might turnout if it were held today. But the published turnout assumes Democrats will outnumber Republicans by 33% in Florida and Ohio, while the advantage jumps by 40% in Pennsylvania.

Not surprisingly - despite their own data showing he is losing Independents in both FL and OH (PA data not released) - Obama is "clearly ahead" of Romney in all three states. And they say it isn't even close. Yep, even though he is losing the Independents he won handily in 2008, Obama is actually winning these swing states by more than double the margin he did then. Make sense?

In 2010, Republican's had a 1 point edge in turnout in Ohio, an even advantage in Florida, and just a 3 point deficit in Pennsylvania. Over the last 8 years, Democratic turnout has averaged just 1 point higher in Ohio and 4 points higher in Pennsylvania, while Republican turnout has averaged 1 point higher than Democratic turnout.

Yes, it’s hard to believe all of these polls when we have such a compelling GOP candidate.

As opposed to the compelling Dem nominee, aka the biggest disaster in history.

A haphazardly administered poll of likely voters in the immediate vicinity of my house revealed today that 100% of the respondents were voting for Mitt Romney for President with current White House Resident in Chief, Barack Obama, receiving a stunning low 0% of votes.

How correct you are. Just making it bigger for all to see. Thanks.

Florida poll D+9
Ohio poll D+9
Pa Poll D+11

These polls are probably taken from DNC phone list. All are skewed exactly the same for Senate races and POTUS.

I recall something about a company in Spain doing the vote counting.

We are royally fscked, IMO. I wouldn’t be surprised to see every single precinct in the country reporting greater than 100% turnout if it means Obama gets back into office.

No amount of prepping will prepare us for what’s about to happen.

The oversampling may just reflect the expected enhanced turnout of Illegal-Americans and MultipleID-Americans and Dead-Americans this year as well as electronic manipuplation already programmed into certain machines.

Btw, I had heard that the NY Daily Snews reported record turnout for D’s outnumbering R’s in early voting in states. However, I seem to be picking up the exact opposite reporting so far, such as your post.

Has “Q” polling ever been right? Ever?

These inflated news media polls are intended to discourage Republicans and encourage Democrats. That may backfire. Republicans are feeling a new sense of urgency while Democrats may think Obama can win without them bothering to vote. The Democrats have some constituencies that must be forced to the polls with cattle prods.

The lib media has been doing this since Carter. They think that by lying a bout their polls and showing the democrat doing well, that more people will want to vote with the winner.

They had Carter close with Reagan when in fact, it was not close. They had Mondale closing with Reagan when in fact he was not. In 1988 they had that clown Dukakis in MA with a 17 point lead over Bush, when in reality he was not. In the 90's, polls showed Clinton with a 8 to 15 point lead on Dole, when in fact, he never did. They had Kerry close with Bush in 2004, when the fact was, he was never that close.

There’s already an enormous amount of disillusionment, unhappiness, and severe lack of enthusiasm among Democrat voters. Obama’s policies have hurt his core constituencies more than almost every other demographic in the nation.

So, just how are these skewed polls lifting their spirits? I posit that they’re not making those on the bottom of the pile feel any better about November. In fact, these polls are probably making them feel worse.

They may not be ready to vote for the Republican, but in their hearts, they sure as hell want someone to fix Obama’s mess.
