    Yeah here is a good example of what CNN did to make a national poll that showed Obama ahead of Romney by 6 points.

    CNN manipulated their polling | Education News

    Romney now leads with independents by 15 points.
    James Carville Poll Panics Dems: Romney Leads By 15 Points Among Independents « Pat Dollard

    The state polls yesterday Ohio--Florida and one other state again over-polled democrats and completely left out independents in their survey. Now who really believes that Obama is ahead by 10 points in Ohio--and several points in Florida?---:badgrin: They are using samples from 2008 and going clear back to 2004 using the "exit polling data"--that was sooo--wrong--it's almost hilarious to watch.
    Here's how they manipulated their polls.

    No President is going to win reelection with real unemployment in this country standing around 12% if you count those that have run out of unemployment benefits.

    The August 2012 job report was HORRIBLE. Employment in this country hits a 30 year LOW.
    August jobs report: hiring down, unemployment falls - Sep. 7, 2012

    The University of Colorado has already called this race for Mitt Romney--based on historic data--and they have been right since 1980.

    I'll explain it to you.

    This cockeyed steaming heap of a conspiracy theory that the Democrats are getting help from the pollsters includes one element of such profound stupidity that it's even surprising that rightwing nuts believe it,

    that is, that Foxnews is in on it.

    Entertain us with an explanation as to why that is happening - supposedly.

    I hate to burst your bubble, but that Colorado study got nothing right.

    That study was only recently concocted, working backwards, making the criteria fit the results in hindsight.

    Sorry.

    Considering the entire world is out to get the conservatives and there's a vast conspiracy against them in every form of life, I'm kind of disappointed I didn't get the memo to get in on it.

    They've replaced guns and Bibles with skewed polls and the University of Colorado.
