Fox News just flashed a poll that showed Obama up 9 points in Ohio. I can assure you that Obama is not up 9 points in this state. Maybe 2 or 3 points.
But that brings me to a bigger question
Why are the state polls not matching up with the national polls that show it about tied ?
FOX News is all over the place these days. The commie libs have them on the run.
1. Registered voters, not likely voters,
2. Oversampling Dems
I’ve been hearing this on the radio all day.
Lie to the pollsters about voting for the black guy because you don't want them to think you are racist.
Yes, the people who do the polling for FOX are not as `fair and balanced` as the people who have the shows on FOX
I doubt everyone polled is telling the truth.
Obama acts like a socialist dictator, and that’s an excellent reason to get him out of office.
Remember that in SC, polls taken the day before the election had gay marriage winning big. Once voters had their opportunity to express their true feelings in secret, it was massive the other way.
What would Obama have to do to be disliked? Express his love for America and our Constitution?
Stealing an election thru voter fraud and voting machine manipulation is hard to swallow without statistical support going into the election.
No such thing happened in 2008. Why would it be different now? The so-called Wilder/Bradley Effect is historical (1980s) and applied to only subsections of the whole country (CA, NYC). Even then it is of dubious value.
Soros is paying off the pollsters?
“I doubt everyone polled is telling the truth.”
Right. That’s why hundreds are typically polled to minimize that impact.
He could be. Let’s hope your gut is more right than this poll.
I don’t know. its a sick feeling...
I like your screen name. But I think George Washington’s real ghost would be using some profanity and yelling at us..
Byron York made a good point on tonight’s Brett Baier show about the polling in our fair state: Obama has outspent Romney in Ohio by something like 4 to 1 over the last month, and the Romney campaign believes this is Obama’s high water mark. In essence, if Brak is polling 47% in Ohio now, he gets 47% in November.
Obama is not up 9 in Ohio, that is absurd. The same poll showed Romney gaining ground in Pennsylvania, but losing major support in both Ohio and Florida.
That said, the national polls are showing movement to the Kenyan over the last couple of weeks. Americans apparently now love amnesty for illegals and gay pride celebrations in the military.
You mean North Carolina? Actually I think the last few polls released before the vote had the Marriage Amendment winning comfortably by double-digits. Even so, it is true that the Amendment’s ultimate 21 point victory was higher than any poll had it winning by.
The only poll I can remember showing majority opposition to the Amendment was some poll done by, I think, Elon. It was so wrong, and such an outlier, that its hard to believe that it wasn’t fixed.
Almost forgot. They also apparently now love gun running operations and the Presidential cover-ups that follow.
