Posted on 05/09/2012 12:30:30 AM PDT by Eleutheria5
United States President Barack Obama leads Republican challenger Mitt Romney by seven percentage points, a Reuters/Ipsos poll found Tuesday. Obama has widened his lead since April, when he was leading by four percentage points.

IIRC, this poll is heavily weighted in the D/R/I breakdown to Ds.
This poll also defies Gallup and Rasmussen.
True enough. But it’s still a poll, and the MSM will still wave it around like the absolute truth.
Who’d they poll, Gitmo inmates?
Al Reuters will pump up Obummer’s numbers until right before the election, then issue some less bogus figures at the last minute so they can later point out how accurate they were.
The Reuters/Ipsos poll of 1,131 registered voters was conducted from May 3 to May 7 and has a 3 percent margin of error.
In other words, they are tied for practical purposes.
From the article:
“A USA Today/Gallup poll released on Monday showed the two candidates locked in a statistical tie in the 12 battleground states that will play a critical role in determining the outcome of the 2012 election.”
Obama is in trouble but with his huge warchest, beating him won’t be easy. Romney needs every vote.
Reuters heh heh...
Actually, the article I just posted from “The Hill” is incorrect — they say the poll is of registered voters. I just went to the Ipsos site, and since it’s their poll,they should know and it says it’s a poll of ADULTS!!!!!!
‘These are findings from an Ipsos poll conducted for Reuters from May 3rd - 7th, 2012. For the survey, a nationally representative, randomly selected sample of exactly 1,131 adults aged 18 and older across the United States was interviewed by Ipsos via live telephone interviewing on landlines and cell phones. With a sample of this size, the results are considered accurate within 2.9 percentage points, 19 times out of 20, of what they would have been had the entire adult population in the U.S. been polled.”
("Daily tracking results are collected via telephone surveys of 500 likely voters per night and reported on a three-day rolling average basis.) [Emphasis supplied].
Why change communists in the middle of a takeover?
Poll is based on registered voters, not likely voters.
Reuters poll over-samples Democrats by 9 percent, finds 7-point Obama edge
“...a January Gallup poll found that Democrats outnumber Republicans in the United States by only 4 percent...
...the Americans polled by Reuters were 47 percent Democrats, 38 percent Republicans and 15 percent independents - a nine-point difference in favor of voters likely to support President Obama’s re-election effort.,...”
AND see my post 8, with link to the actual Ipsos site, which states that the poll was of ADULTS, not even of registered voters.
Obama must be in real trouble, if they have to poll adults AND oversample Dems to make it look as if he were ahead.
Are Democrats going to give Obama a massive “MEH” this November?
Actually it’s a poll of ADULTS — see my post 8 with link to Ipsos stating that.
AND they oversampled Dems (see my post 9)
Oops — see post 12 (not 9) — oversampled Dems
Need more lies.
Al reuters? They jest!
Al Reuters. Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past 4 years, check out every reuters article on obama: it’s a kiss ass article, everyone of them..
There is no way that Barack is even leading much less blowing out Romney in the polls. Don’t believe it for a minute.
This could very well blow up in the leftist medias face. Not very wise to make Obama appear to be a shoe-in. (Complacency develops on one side while the other works harder.) Laziness comes natural to democrats anyway.
