  • Video: CBS focus group in Ohio picks Romney the winner

    10/23/2012 8:50:35 AM PDT · by Justaham · 29 replies ^ | 10/23/12 | Ed Morrissey
    Charlie Rose and Norah O’Donnell seem a little surprised by the results of this focus group conducted by CBS during last night’s debate, a group that consists of eight undecided voters in Ohio — a critical swing state for both Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. Conventional wisdom and spot polls showed Obama winning a narrow victory over Romney in last night’s debate, but that’s not how CBS’ independents saw it:

    A focus group of media professionals convened by Fox News Channel’s Megyn Kelly burst into a heated yelling match on Wednesday during a discussion of CNN anchor Candy Crowley’s performance as the moderator of the second presidential debate. RELATED: Candy Crowley’s Debate Moderation Exemplifies Why Americans Do Not Trust Their Media Several of the Republican focus group participants said that they believed Crowley’s fact checking was inappropriate, both because she was supposed to be the impartial moderator and because the fact that she checked was debatable. Media writer and entrepreneur Carol Roth said that it was “clear that she was...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Let's go to the audio sound bites. I mentioned at the top of the program the Frank Luntz focus group that Hannity had on Fox. This is funny. I got a text from my brother when Hannity promoted the Luntz focus group, David said, "Oh, oh, no, I hope Luntz doesn't have his usual group of liberals put together." And then when Luntz's group showed up and started talking, David said, "I gotta eat my words, this is a great group." Here it is. We've got three bites. Frank Luntz in Las Vegas last night, I think...

    Oops! On FOX News a former Obama voter told Frank Luntz that Obama’s been “bullsh*tting the public” for years. “He’s lied about everything. He lied to get elected in 2008 that’s why I voted for him. I bought it. Bull. And, he’s lied about everything. He hasn’t come through on anything. And he’s been bullsh*tting the public.“

    Over the past few years, a new technology has sprung up: Search Engine Optimization, or SEO. It is the creation of Internet Marketers, and Spammers, who seek ways to get our attention, to defeat spam blockers, and to zero in on our individual demographic and perhaps more important, psychographic profiles. At its worst, it is an invasion of privacy on an unprecedented scale. It invades e-mail by using spyware to build specialized vocabularies for every customer. It looks over browser inquiries, even private correspondence with commercial entities. Then, SEO techniques are able to help create messages, using key words, or...

    Q. How can you tell when a politician speaks to the tune of focus groups? A. The overall tone and meaning is at odds with their actions. Focus groups have one purpose: to find the exact set of words that make people happy. However, the facts clearly disagree with Obama’s action, records and at times—plain facts.

    I've watched Franks Luntz and his "focus groups" for years. There is no question in my mind that his "groups" are filled with planted leftists. There is now way in the world that even a random selection of "undecided" could be decidedly socialist after a debate that McCain won. Throw that crap out!! Punt the Luntz!!

    Many have said they’re not interested in Windows Vista, that Windows XP is just fine for them. And in fact, you could go so far as to say some of them actually hate the OS. Still, a new OS, Mojave, may just be the key to a new marketing campaign. Last week Microsoft told a focus group in San Francisco they were being shown a new version of Windows, codenamed Mojave. Feedback was quite positive; more than 90% gave positive feedback. Afterwards they were told that Mojave was actually Windows Vista.

    Sen. Hillary Clinton, speaking in Bettendorf, Iowa, trying to convince a crowd to caucus for her, explained that she wants to be with them so that she can win Iowa in November 2008. "I want a long term relationship," she said. "I don't want to just have a one night stand with all of you." Clinton is trying to earn support of Iowans by launching a new theme today -- "Take your Buddy to Caucus." This is a new strategy from Clinton, who has said that most of her supporters have never been to a caucus before. The campaign has...

    Debate Score: Bush 3, Kerry 0 Written by Gregory Borse Saturday, October 16, 2004 Senator Kerry’s nuanced (read hypocritical) foreign policy record includes politically opportunistic votes on the idea of war (he’s for it when it’s politically expedient, or supported by Clinton, and against it when Howard Dean proves that it’s politically expedient in the Democratic Party to be against it). But Kerry has also voted against military funding every time the issue has been brought to the floor of the senate. Kerry’s foreign policy position in a time of war includes attempting to co-opt Ronald Reagan in Wednesday night’s...

An independent voter and Catholic school teacher, Grunklee complains that President Bush "lied to get us into Iraq," that he is "allowing too much corruption," that he is "taking care of the top one or two percent" of rich people at the expense of everyone else, that his tax cuts have not stoked the economy, and that his attorney general, John Ashcroft, is "crushing the Constitution." Grunklee's preferred candidate for 2004? President Bush....
