Obama has 10-point lead in new national poll
The Hill ^ | August. 2, 2012 | Alicia M. Cohn

Posted on 08/02/2012 5:15:46 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

President Obama leads Mitt Romney nationally by 10 points, according to a new poll released Thursday.

Obama took 51 percent compared to Romney’s 41 percent of the vote when the Pew Research Center asked which candidate people would vote for if the election were held today. That’s a much wider gap between the two candidates than most recent polls show; the RealClearPolitics national average puts Obama in the lead with an average of 3 points.

That is an absolute crock of crap! These polls are meaningless. Believe only what your eyes and ears tell you. Do not believe these polls and especially do not believe the State Run Media!!

Lets see if you can find the skew. LoL.


(1,505 respondents were interviewed on a landline telephone, and 1,003 were interviewed on a cell phone, including 531 who had no landline telephone).

All those cell phones talking to Dems. LoL.

Obama’s internals are so bad, the only hope they have is to put out these fake polls to try to discourage Republican votes.

To put this nonsense poll in some perspective, according to Rasmussen, his self-identified poll has it about 33.5 to 34% Reps, 32% Dem, and 30% Indy.

I won’t even talk to telephone pollsters. What I think is none of some stranger’s business. I think liberals are much more eager to share their political views with random people on the phone than normal, i.e. conservative folks are.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Chick-fil-A is also headed downhill. Apparently all those people in line yesterday were just rubes who do not matter when the real count is taken:

Chick-fil-A Leaps Into Controversy

In other words, no matter how things look, we lose. Give up and shoot yourself.

I think the media is assisting Obama in a planned series of riots after he loses the election. The media plumps the numbers which gives Obama’s followers the expectation that he will win. When he loses, there will be outrage and accusations of a stolen election. This will probably be followed closely with some well-placed agitators to stir up riots that will lead to martial-law and an attempt to negate the election and allow Obama to remain in power. Mark my words.

This is the most pathetic, idiotic, worthless poll I've seen in a long while.

A general rule of thumb for a REAL party affiliation, based on past election results is 31% Republican, 33% Democrat, 32% Independent and 4% other.

Calculate every Rat will vote for Obama and every Pubbie will vote for Romney with a 55%-45% split with Inds. in favor of Romney and a 3%-1% split with “other” in favor of Obama, Romney will win 53% to 46% and 1% will stick with “other”.

It is what it is. You should be used to it.

That would be "Obama's Army" SEIU, ACORN, Black Liberation Front, Black Panthers, etc.,etc. all ready to go to war against Whitey although they haven't the slightest clue as to how it would turn the USA into a clone of the USSR, China or Cuba.

“Both the landline and cell RDD samples were stratified by county based on estimated incidences of African-American and Hispanic adults, and counties with higher densities of African-American and Hispanic adults were oversampled. The final sample is weighted to correct for this disproportionate sampling.”

“Sample sizes and sampling errors for other subgroups are available upon request. In addition to sampling error, one should bear in mind that question wording and practical difficulties in conducting surveys can introduce error or bias into the findings of opinion polls.”

Total sample = 2,508.
Republicans = 459.
Democrats = 813.
Independent = 599.

What a joke. Where did they poll, on the upper west side of Manhattan?

They don’t care about “no one” they only care about the HEADLINE. We are background noise compared to the ears that will hear and eyes that will see that “10 point lead” push poll result.

Obama loses by a little or a lot in every demographic group, and in every state and in every time period, but he makes it up in volume.

I think liberals are much more eager to share their political views with random people on the phone than normal, i.e. conservative folks are.

I'll put one to that. The last time a pollster called my landline (which I hardly ever answer directly), he was apparently surprised by my disinclination to participate.

What is this obsession with polls anyway? 2+2 does not suddenly become 5 because of a majority vote. Meanwhile, finding out what the "majority" believes today does not give you a clue to what they might say tomorrow.

Polling is an exercise for sheeple.

This picture is confirmation of my earlier opinion piece that Dems just use their (disproportionately female, usually single) voters in the electoral equivalent of the "pump and dump."
