Time Poll Puts Obama Up Five in Ohio, BUTů
PJ Media ^ | October 24, 2012 | BRYAN PRESTON

The sampling is daft. Here’s Time’s write-up, but here are the crosstabs. You’re welcome to read all 49 pages, but here’s the kicker: The sample is D 39, R 30. That’s higher than the 2008 differential.

This poll is at best an outlier, and at worst bogus. CNN just cited it without noting the sampling problem. That’s how the MSM game is played.

A D+9 poll? Are you kidding me?

Makes the coming riots easier to explain...

Well he was so far up in all the polls that someone MUST have stole the election for him, ergo Romney is not a legitimate president!”

And the MSM will push the meme until there IS rioting. Then ....

Even Chuck Todd at MSNBC blew this poll off this morning.

“CNN just cited it without noting the sampling problem.”

EXACTLY.
And we are going to see MORE of it.
The Lames are going to manufacture a come-back for Zero.
Get ready for it.
All we can do is point out the dishonest sampling on as many sites as possible through our comments. But this is going to hurt us with the mushy undecided voter who gets nearly all their info from dishonest ABC/NBC/CBS not informing what the sampling break-down is.

I’m scared, snarky. Scared they will steal it like they tried to do in 2000.

Of course +9 for Dems in Ohio. It wasn’t even that in 2008 with Obama enthusiasm at it’s highest.

The MSM pollsters can’t show Romney ahead because that spells DOOOOMMMM for the Obama campaign, so they will contort their polls until closer to election day.

The trending from absentee and early voting in Ohio is still going our way. Follow FReepers LS and Ravi for updates.

It should be AT MOST a D+3; which is a responsible prediction for turnout. That would most likely put Romney ahead by a point, and thus showing how really the election is shaking out.
