Skewed polls indicate Obama's in trouble - not Romney
American Thinker ^ | 09-27-2012 | Keith Edwards

Posted on 09/27/2012 6:05:41 PM PDT by GilGil

Naturally, if you support Obama and are treated every day to wall-to-wall news headlines showing Obama so far ahead of Romney in the polls that the election is basically over, then you're less likely to go out of your way to vote in November. So there's a really fine line between turning out your voters and turning off your voters when using polling data like this.

Yes, to some extent, and if Obumbo gets to replace just one more justice, it will be all over but the shouting.

I was mostly referring to the manipulation of public opinion.
Today’s Commie media, and education system, no longer even try to hide their bias.

Probably because it is close and will be close on election night. Until recently I was thinking there’s no way Obama will even come close. I thought it would be a landslide victory for Romney. But, now I don’t think so anymore. Romney just is not projecting confidence. Obama is.

A president should be wearing a solid white, off-white, or other light-colored shirt with a dark colored tie. I’m confused why anyone needs to be told this.

Then the question is — why is the media so much in the tank for Obama? Why are pollsters doctoring the poll results, to make it seem that Obama is more popular than he really is????

When Owebama looses voter fraud will be alleged and the marxist will take to the street to keep Owebama in office. Areas of large cities will burn. Owebama could then declare a natal emergency and take over. Who would stop him?

More smart people hate the HOMOPOTUS than are “undecided” about Romney.

If they ARE “undecided”, they are traitors, IMHO.

(and, hey...I liked Newt, too. But, as Levin said, “I’d vote for an empty soda can over Obama.”)

I also agree. I live in the People’s Democratic Socialist Republic of Illinois (admittedly not near Chicago) and I have yet to see any bumper stickers for the big Zero.

” probably see more 0bama yard signs in nice neighborhoods than anywhere,”

Probably self defense before the riots start-—THEY don’t want the locusts to trash their neighborhood after Bath-House Barry loses.

I find ‘stickers’ that I like on a website, print it off and tape it to the inside of my car’s rear window. I have four anti-O displayed right now.

“I’m not sure, but I think early on Romney decided yard signs and bumper stickers weren’t too important. I see almost none for either candidate. Plus, both Obama and Romney charge for stickers and signs.”

Took a ride on the Harley this morning/afternoon.

I started out in SW Connecticut, crossed over into northern Westchester County on the New York side, rode north into southern Dutchess county, then back down into CT again.

I saw very few “yard signs”, and they were all for “local candidates”.

I didn’t see a single “Obama” or “Romney” sign. Not one.

Awfully quiet “out there”.
Kinda strange, actually....

very Romney bumper sticker I see 4-5 Obummer stickers/b>

Right, in AL a state going 55-45 for Romney you see 5 times as many Obama bumper stickers. Where do you live across the street from the AL state Democrat HQ?

“Skewed polls, sure, no question. What will you say though if after all these skewed polls Obama still wins? Honest question, what will you say?”

If that happens, there’s gonna be a lot of chirpin’ crickets around this place come November 7th...
And a few truckloads of frozen crow, ready to microwave and serve!

The way I see it:
SOME of the polls are “skewed”. Perhaps more than a few.
But at least a small number of the polls aren’t.

Even those polls that aren’t skewed — Rasmussen, for example — show an uphill climb for Romney in states like Florida, Ohio, and Virginia. The warning signs are out there.

Let’s wait 3 more weeks and see how things start to firm up when the debates are done. If Romney’s going to win, it ought to be apparent by then...

Well if the margin is 1-2 points instead of 10 like the polls say we will remind all of you that next time you might want to be a little more skeptical about the polling.

Think about this. How do the polls effect turn out? Could 1-2 points worth of GOP votes nation wide be convinced that "it is hopeless, why should I vote" by these skewed polling?

The GOP has to fight this polling war every single election

I live in a heavily Republican area just south of Columbus, OH. In 2008, there were yard signs and bumper stickers everywhere for both candidates. Eerily, I have yet to see any for either candidate yet. I don’t know what to make of it.

I read some of 2nddiv's post. Eyeballs are going soft, to many hours at the screen. But I'll leave you with a...
75%(r) 15%(o), 10% (known voter fraud not counted).
Time for me to head for CSPAN to listen to what bull shit Panneta and Dempsey will drum up at the Pentagon Press. Then off to bed. Have a good one.

The proposition form the MSM is that Obama is going to win it all and that polls are showing him surging in a wave of excitement.

If this is true, then the Obama signs should be all over the place to reflect this gushing exuberance; yet, they are nowhere to be found. Democrats are an in your face bunch but they are not in anybody’s face with their signs. That is what is significant. If they are so hot for O they should be proud to show it off with signs. That is what democrats do which is to show off their emotions. They are not doing that which is totally out of character. That is the point here.

We are concluding that the democrats are not at all into these elections and as I keep saying if they are led to believe they have it in the bag they will conclude they do not need to show up and vote. On the contrary, democrats seem depressed and dejected not at all what the polls reflect. It is not hard to conclude that they will not see the point in voting because they have no excitement and they will think there are so many others who are excited that their vote won’t matter anyway.

These polls are pure fantasy and if you read through the lines the MSM is lying so hard because they too know they are losing big and have nothing left but to lie because reality is so badly against them— an economy going into recession again, unemployment, an assassinated ambassador, layoffs, declining home prices, riots, crime, lies etc., etc.

I take this as a very positive sign actually. Could be wrong, but I think it shows that there are fewer Obama supporters that want to admit it. But I also think that there are a lot of Romney supporters who are, well, afraid to be too public.

Some of us sensed that last year ~ before the 2011 elections ~ this ain't the guy!

That leaves freedom loving Americans with very few options.

Moslems use the hajib on women to warn outsiders to stay out!

Small thing but it works.

This neighborhood has no Romney or Obamugabe signs and yet Romney came to the local Legion hall to speak yesterday. He was warmly received.

Still no signs.

There's nothing around here to show Republican warm and fuzzies.

I don’t think its time to despair just yet though. Bush never projected confidence very well. Yet he won two terms. barely.

You are welcome. I agree with your comments about it.

It gave me some hope. But I pray to God that such a dire calamity to this nation will not ever manifest. Nevertheless, I’m truly grateful that so many patriots are out there praying and asking God to direct them individually and are ready for what actions are needed for what we may be facing.
