Skip to comments.Marist Polling: An In-Kind Contribution to Obama
Posted on 11/03/2012 2:07:59 PM PDT by hcmama
Last night, Marist Universitys latest polling was released from NBC and the Wall Street Journal. And as predictable as my dog wanting to go for a walk after dinner, they delivered polls for Obama that not only defy logic, but even beat the results from some Democrat-leaning pollsters.
In Ohio, Marist/NBC/WSJ finds Obama up by six, 5145, unchanged from just after the first debate. The Democratic party-ID advantage in this poll was nine points. Nine.
By my calculations, Democrats held a five-point advantage in party ID in the wave election of 2008, following a five-point advantage for Republicans in 2004. Essentially Marist is finding that Democrats are not only going to match their turnout advantage from 2008, but they are actually going to almost double it. That lines up well with Romney drawing 30,000 to a rally in Ohio while Obama pulled just a fraction for his rallies. Or not.

Any poll commissioned by NBC cannot be believed. I will shout with joy when this execrable so-called news network goes under.
They have been real gud to him the last week! Lots of (photo) ops!!
ALL the pollsters are crap.
They play the same funny turnout games as Marist.
As least they don’t go overboard to show they’re in the tank for Obama. But they’re wrong, too.
A D+4 turnout simply isn’t going to happen.
If by some miracle it does, we’ll all have to eat crow. But I think that’s the unlikeliest possibility of all this year.
Whatever they call themselves, their brand of Catholicism is of the "liberation theology" and "social justice" ilk.
IOW, not really Catholicism, but Marxism.
