Seattle Post Intelligencer ^ | 04/19/12 | NBC/WSJ Poll: Obama up by six points

Posted on 04/19/2012 6:21:55 PM PDT by raulgomez05

President Obama enjoys a 49-43 percent lead over Republican nominee-in-waiting Mitt Romney, according to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal national poll released on Thursday evening.

The 44th president has a 49-46 percent approval rating, but his numbers on managing the economy — 45-52 percent disapproval — indicate Obama’s central vulnerability.

The sampling of the poll must be about 80% Democrats, 20% Republicans.

As I stated on another thread, I do not trust ANY poll that is conducted by the Marxist media.

Total horse poop. I’d trust NBC’s poll like I would trust Casey Anthony around children. Gallop poll shows Obama down 5 against Romney..guess Obama’s butt buddies in the media have gotten the memo..anything to make their messiah look good

Please, somebody help me here: We have a bull sh*t poll that supposedly shows Obama up by six points...and what? So, Obama’s supposedly up six points...and this changes unemployment how? It lowers gas prices how? It changes the misery that this F-ing Marxist has created how?

Do these A$$ clowns actually think the average American is sitting out there saying to themselves: “I'm unemployed, Gas prices through the roof, scared of ObamaCare etc., but hey, Obama’s up by six points! OK, this changes everything...I'm definitely going to vote for him now!” Pahhlease! I hope every last one of these "journalists" lose their livelyhood for the hoax that they've helped create! I have no pity for them or the Kenyan!

A lot of people are unable to get out and vote for many reasons. Did you happen to vote in last November’s
election for president? (IF “YES,” ASK:) For whom did you vote––Barack Obama, John McCain, or someone
else?
Yes, Voted
Voted for Barack Obama ................ 41
Voted for John McCain ................... 32
Voted for someone else ................. 4
Not sure .......................................... 3
No, Did Not Vote ............................. 19
Not sure ........................................

SO WHY ASK.

These are not likely voters.
They filled 20% of the survey with people who do not follow politics enough to give a damn one way of the other.

The sample definitely aids Obama. But it’s not as bad as CNN or ABC. If the poll is weighed fairly, it’s basically a tie which all the other polls show as well - other than CNN.

Yeah, I don’t think that ANY Democrat operative is imagining that 2010 is going to reincarnate as 2012 even with Romney on the ticket (if he is).

The Democrats are going to get slammed and Obama’s coattails are going to usher in many a freshman Republican.

The next big movement (2012-2014) needs to be primary-ing incumbent RINOs with hardcore tea-party types and making sure out party retains the values it once had.

Considering that the first 5-6 categories I wouldn’t consider conservative, that would make sense.

Big deal. When they call me to ask who I will vote for, I am saying primary for Newt and General for Sarah if Newt does not make it. No way will I vote for Obama or his brother Romney.

When you have another Dole, McCain type candidate, what can you expect. Romney will lose because he never should even be the candidate.

I checked the msnbc.com website, and it looks like the poll was of 1,000 adults - not registered voters, not likely voters, simply adults, a.k.a. the results are meaningful only for propaganda purposes. QED.

Actually these poll numbers are not that bad considering the vast majority of voters have probably never heard Romney give a speech where he lays out his vision for Amnerica. He can only go up once people start paying attention, assuming gas prices stay high, jobs are sluggish, housing is weak, etc. Also, I wouldn’t compare him to Dole or McCain, who were old duds with zero charisma. Romney is different—he has energy with the fire in his belly. I wouldn’t count him out yet.

It is another junk pole to create the news and influence public opinion, rather than report the news. Took some looking to find the internals.

The margin of error for 1,000 interviews is ±3.1%

Notice it was interviews and not party registration, registered voters, nor likely voters. The internals and questions indicate total BS.

Let them continue to say this stuff. Question: Why would anyone believe this pole (as in means of pole vaulting Obama) over a Rasmussen Obama down 5 among likely voters or even Gallup poll Obama down 5 with registered voters but he fell 3 points just since Monday? Look it up.

“He [Romney] can only go up once people start paying attention...}

Actually in ‘08 I didn’t know much about him and just had a visceral contempt and distrust for him. As I have learned more about his record of governance, because I am a watch their hands not read their lips kind of guy, I have come to detest the dissebling leftist, Willard.

I would crawl over broken glass to vote against anyone with such a hard core leftwing record, and will do so in November.
