If Romney keeps it close in the People’s Republik of Northern Virginia, he will take Virginia.
I doubt Obama carries the PRNV by double digits this election.
Well said...this business of rep pollster working with dem pollster, NBC/WSJ claims to do the same...I know they have Heart or Hart as the Democrat, and they have supposedly a Republican, have no idea who he is, however I think he may just be a puppet.
They only have the Hart guy on NBC talking about the poll. I have heard from Chuck Todd`s lips that he has some input as to the wording of the poll questions, also Chuck/upChuck cant stop talking about the poll, says it`s the “Gold Standard” in polling.
It`s to bad that Rupert Murdoch allows his paper to be connected with the NBC poll.
I just do not believe any longer in the “science” of political partisan polling, I think the science went out the window some time ago, and that the masses are swayed by the announced numbers.
There poll ranked #10 in 08 and Rasmussen was #1
It’s more conservative than PA, but the econ is better than nationally there so... It sure is NOT +10 Dems. They have a Repub gov for one thing...
I know your first thought is always of the samples, so here you go: Im listing the WSJ/NBC poll partisan split first and then the 2008 exit poll split (in parenthesis) for each state for comparison. And yes, this is likely voters:
Virginia: 31D/26R/43I (39/33/27)
Ohio: 38D/28R/32I (39/31/30)
Florida: 35D/33R/30I (37/34/29)
Polls should be banned from after the last convention until the election.
I would like the msm to sweat a bit, not think they can sway the popular voter types...
Does anyone know how one does make an accurate poll? There is no way to know how many Democrats or Republicans will actually vote before an election is there? Please fill me in.
You are absolutely correct! Obama is having such poor turnouts, he has been bussing supporters in and telling the media to make it look like a bigger crowd.
Meanwhile, Romney is supporting coal and his crowds are growing exponentially.
America is not stupid and there is going to be a slaughter in November.
