When you read a Newsweek poll, you know it's going to be liberal slanted to the extent possible. These statistics only prove it.
The only offense against the liberal-leaning media is for people to put in the time and effort to educate themselves on the issues. Watching the news for 30 minutes a day on NBC, CBS, or ABC is not going to do it, but sadly too many people think it will. If you don't think NCB, CBS and ABC are a liberal-leaning news cabal, why are Peter Jennings and Tom Brokaw defending--instead of denouncing--Dan Rather on his Bush/National Guard story. The story is so full of holes only the moronic in good conscience would try to defend it.
This is interesting information, thank you Kathianne.
It is deceitful for Newsweek to change the composition of the polls and then compare the results. Does such intentionally misleading behavior have a political or commercial agenda? If Newsweek supports Kerry, then the new poll result will encourage his supporters. Moreover, a horserace is more interesting and may sell more magazines than a poll result where one of the candidates is clearly ahead.
Welcome Pat !
What i think is interesting is there is an LA Times poll saying nothing has changed. Knowing the LA times and how they will try to make Bush look in the worst light possible, i am willing to think that if they had any way to show Bush wasnt ahead and the race tightened they would have. regardless im not terribly concerned.
I don't understand HOW in the WORLD you're able to spin having more republicans in a poll, showing a huge lead for Bush/Cheney, is a liberal slant. "Setting up the comeback"? Hwa!?
Either you are stupid or disingenuous.
In the two polls you've given, there were 90 more Republicans in one, and 19 more Democrats in the 2nd. Two questions: do they actually know the political persuasion of the people being polled before they were chosen? If so, where is this documented? And second, why would the liberal slanters choose to use 90 more Republicans in the first poll? Were they trying to slant only the second poll? Why not both?
methodology aside, do you understand the logic of skewing in favor of bush initially so it appears to be a comeback? That's what you said you didn't get. Is that still confusing you?
If you cannot discern, don't you have a problem with?
