    IBDeditorials.com: IBD/TIPP Economic, Presidential Election, and Political Polls -- IBD/TIPP Tracking Poll: Day Eleven

    First of all, it's one of the outliers, just like the AP poll. It has Obama up by 1. Which is good because that'll get more Democrats out there.

    However...

    When I go to their website, I found articles about how Obama is a socialist and what a great person Sarah Palin is.

    In looking closer at their poll numbers, nearly 12% of the people they questioned are undecided. That's the largest amount by any of the polls out there.

    Thier sample size is also 66% smaller than that of Rasmussen's polls and half the size of Gallup's.

    I can't get past their news stories, though... to have anti-Democratic and pro-Republican news stories on the same website where you're displaying poll results....

    David,

    You crack me up. Biden guarantees an international crisis with Obama as President and the NY Times makes no mention of it yet they have multiple orgasms over Palin's wardrobe. Yet I'll bet you have the NY Times/CBS poll set to refresh every five minutes on your computer.

    But I do admire your spunk!

    Ahhhh!!!! Here's what I knew was wrong with the poll! This poll has John McCain leading 3-1 on kids 18-24 years old!! That is the biggest load of BS if I've ever seen it!

    What possible connection is there between the two.

    Paper boy, you've been out in the rain too often.

    Could be.

    But the connection is that David only sees problems with polls that look good for McCain and ignores obviously biased polls for Obama.

    I was simply pointing out how biased NY Times is (like I really needed to).

    But perhaps I need to get an umbrella! :D

    Obama lead on McCain grows to 12 points - Yahoo! News

    Show Obama up 12 Points in the Reuters/C-Span/Zogby Polls.

    WHY DIDN'T YOU POST THIS newsboy?
