    As we know--the national polls have been oversampling democrats to republicans and leaving independents out of the equation. They're also using 2010 voter turn-out to give these very unrealistic polling data to show Obama ahead.

    Here is a good example:

    CNN a couple of weeks ago showed Obama leading by 6 points over Romney in a national poll.

    CNN manipulated their polling | Education News

    Of course then last Quinnipac released several swing state polls showing Obama ahead in every one of them--again by over-polling democrats to republicans and only adding a 1% sample of Independents.

    Never trust a word they say: NY Times, Quinnipiac skew polling in attempt to depress turnout of voters frustrated with the failures of Obamanomics « Bob Owens

    So here is the un-manipulation chart--(that btw) does not include the correct amount of independents who favor Romney now by 15 points. You'll see that Romney is leading in these swing states.

    I imagine this has something to do with what Dick Morris is talking about. Basically the polls are telling us that the same amount of people are going to come out and vote for Barack Obama as they did in 2008--and that the Republicans that showed up in 2010 which resulted in an historic 75 year butt kicking of democrats across this country won't be voting this year along with independents--who Romney leads by 15 points---:badgrin:

    Dunno what his process is but I do enjoy hearing him despite some of his nutty rhetoric.

    Dick Morris is ALWAYS right. He has never made a prediction that turned out to be inaccurate.

    He's been wrong quite a bit but the man is fun to listen to. At this point I give him a SLIGHT edge over all the bullshit polls we've endured to this point.

    He has played in the sandbox on both sides of the isle. I've never read his books so I dunno why he switched but I bet it's an interesting story.

    And.....knowing how you are so firmly planted in reality that you have never been suckered.....those words are so very meaningful. You give DICK FUCKING MORRIS an edge over ALL. the other polls. Wonderfully stupid of you.

    Morris is trying to make money telling rightwingers what they want to hear.
