    Answer this.

    If the current polling data showing Obama in the lead is a liberal media conspiracy,
    why is the latest FOXNEWS poll - knowing as we do that FOXNEWS is in no way a part of the liberal media -

    showing Obama up by 5?

    That, btw, is tied for highest margin for Obama of all the polls in the current realclear average.

    How is it a liberal media conspiracy for NBC to have Obama +5, CBS Obama +3, AP Obama +1,

    while Fox has Obama +5???

    Would not the simplest test of the validity of a claim of a liberal media conspiracy be to compare the so-called liberal media polls to the non-liberal, or conservative media polls?

    Wouldn't there have to be some measureable difference IN the polls?

    I don't account for it. And not every poll is showing it.

    That poll was taken from Sept. 9-11, of which the likely voters, 42% considered themselves Democrats, and 36% considered themselves Republican.

    Not one word of intelligent rebuttal from you. Of course that's because what I said is irrefutable.

    Your insane premise that there is a liberal media conspiracy in the polling requires that one believe that FOXNEWS is a party to that liberal conspiracy.

    That leads to the question:

    What is the motive of a conservative cable news channel like Foxnews to join into a supposed liberal media conspiracy over the polls?

    Can anyone answer that? Or can we all just accept the fact that there is no such conspiracy...

    A brain dead hack troll bitch like you, Carbuncle, can't recognize intelligence, anyway. So your assessment is valueless.

    As I DID say (intelligently and correctly) before, however: with or without a "conspiracy," a poor sampling does skew the results.

    And a shithead hack lying sack of pus like you cannot even begin to address that point.

    Are you saying that makes it a good poll?

    Or are you saying that Foxnews is skewing the numbers in favor of Obama?

    Is the Foxnews poll skewed in favor of Obama, yes or no?

    If (and to whatever extent) it over-samples Dims, then the answer is plainly "yes," you dope.
