CBS Trumpets Obama's 'Growing Lead' in Own Poll; Barely Mentions Republicans' Enthusiasm to Vote
NewsBusters.org ^ | September 26, 2012 | Matthew Balan

Posted on 09/26/2012 4:10:04 PM PDT by Kaslin

Norah O'Donnell was ready to tie the toe tag on Mitt Romney's presidential campaign on Wednesday's CBS This Morning, as the morning newscast hyped the latest numbers from the Quinnipiac University/CBS News/New York Times poll, especially President Obama's 10-point lead in Ohio. After mentioning Romney's latest 60-second TV spot, O'Donnell twice wondered, "Is it too late? The voting in Ohio starts next week."

As Charlie Rose spotlighted the President's "growing lead" in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Florida, according to his network's poll. But it took the program more than an hour to mention only in passing that "Republican voters remain more enthusiastic about voting than the Democrats," without mentioning the specific numbers.

O'Donnell zeroed in on Ohio during her lead-in to correspondent Jan Crawford's report on the poll numbers: "The poll shows...[in] Ohio - look at this - the President leads Governor Mitt Romney by ten points. And, of course...no Republican has ever won the election while losing Ohio." The CBS journalist pointed out that besides Obama's lead, "there are other troubling signs for Romney. Voters in Ohio and the two other swing states we surveyed now give the President the edge on the economy, the cornerstone of Romney's campaign. And those voters also say they believe Romney's policies will favor the rich."

After Crawford's report, Rose and O'Donnell brought on new CBS News political analyst Frank Luntz, who immediately affirmed the network's polling:

LUNTZ: ...[T]he Romney campaign's whole philosophy behind this election said this would be a referendum on Barack Obama. The Obama campaign thought that this was going to be a choice. Both of them are wrong. It has become a referendum on Mitt Romney, and because they didn't do the ads early enough. They didn't explain who Mitt Romney was early enough. It mean that all of the Obama attacks of the last three or four weeks - they're showing results. You see it in your own surveys.

The PBS veteran followed up by asking, "Looking at this widening gap, is President Obama winning, or is Governor Romney losing?" Luntz answered that "it has to be a combination of both, but it is very easy for someone's perceptions to be destroyed if they don't know anything about you. In the polling that we've done in some of these swing states, still a third of Americans don't know what Bain Capital actually does, and when you have that little awareness, that little knowledge, it makes the negative attacks effective."

O'Donnell then chimed in with her doom and gloom, "is it too late" prodding about Romney:

O'DONNELL: So, I spent a lot of time last night talking to a lot of Republicans and Democrats myself to, sort of, see what was going on. This 47 percent ad - that secret video from inside that fundraiser ad – the Obama team was running it just in Ohio. Now, they've gone up in seven other swing states with it. There are Republicans that I talked to – acknowledge that ad is working, and that's why they went up, and that's why we see these numbers in Ohio stretching out. What does Romney do now? I mean, we see this morning he's got this new ad where he's speaking directly to the camera for 60 seconds. But is it too late? The voting in Ohio starts next week.

LUNTZ: Well, two points: one is, the reason why that 47 percent is working, is because it's new information. We don't want to hear the same thing over and over again. And so, voters pay attention to it, to see what Mitt Romney is saying-

O'DONNELL: But look at this ad now. For the first time, Romney is now speaking directly to the people in a 60-second ad. Is that too late?

LUNTZ: Yes – in a simple answer, yes. That should have been done three or four months ago. Mitt Romney solidified his control of the Republican Party back in late April. Why is this ad only running now? I think, when we look back at this campaign, we're going to realize that you can't have the same impact in September that you could have in June, July, and August.

Luntz would later give a caveat about the remaining weeks of the presidential race: "These debates can and do make a difference. If there is a defining moment – and it won't be an issue - if there's a defining moment in the debate, it can still shift. But Mitt Romney has 90 seconds in the opening of that first debate to make a difference."

The CBS morning show anchor been in death watch mode towards the Republican presidential campaign for almost two weeks. After Romney's slam of the U.S. embassy in Egypt's reaction to a destructive protest that stormed its wall, O'Donnell emphasized on September 13 that "Republicans...are saying that Governor Romney stepped in it." When the hidden camera video from the far left magazine Mother Jones emerged, she wondered, "Did Mitt Romney just insult many of the people who end up voting Republican?"

Crawford mentioned the enthusiasm gap at the end of her report recapping the poll results just after the top of the 8 am Eastern hour - more than an hour after her first report: "The Romney campaign says it is not worried. Their internal polling has these numbers much closer together. They say this is still a very tight race. And they also point to enthusiasm. That is actually reflected in our poll. The Republican voters remain more enthusiastic about voting than the Democrats."

CBS This Morning did something similar back on September 19, 2012. It took them over an hour to acknowledge that "this race is not over for Mitt Romney," based on the network's own polling. O'Donnell herself noted that "Republicans are more enthusiastic than Democrats about voting this year in general, and that enthusiasm has actually...grown since early August."

It is good for the democrats to be confident, perhaps fewer will actually vote. The more they say Obama has it made, the more I want to be sure to vote. I will vote as early as possible.

Do these people EVER bother to actually look at numbers? Or do they base whether they take a s#4t or not on polls?

LdSentinal and I are tracking absentee ballot requests, and the Rs are up EVERYWHERE. Even in deep blue Cuyahoga Co., which the Dems won overwhelmingly in 08, they are down 14%. But Rs are way up in Warren, Hamilton (which McCain lost) and Franklin (which McCain lost).

I don't see how Obama wins OH if he loses Hamilton and Franklin and if he loses 70,000 votes off his total in Cuyahoga.

PS: all my "guesstimates" are based on three assumptions: 1) no Rs will vote for Obama; 2) no Ds will vote for Romney, and 3) Is split 50/50. Yet I think almost all the polling (ugh) has Romney up between 2-10 points with the Is. Game over.

On Fox Special Report the panel were discussing the polling samples and all of them agreed that it’s becoming more crystal clear that O is really gaining momentum in the polls and that all polls can’t be wrong if they are beginning to show the same percentage. I tuned out after that so I can’t really tell you more, but that lady Powers sure looked thrilled. I can’t believe the American people can be so blind....STICK A FORK IN AMERICA SHE IS DONE FOR GOOD!

When in the real world, everyone and their dog is absolutely sick of Obama, most people with even only two brain cells to rub together are going to see it for the shuck that it is. It’s time to start burning up their email and phone lines demanding accurate poll metrics and numbers.

On special Report they showed both Omuslim and Romney's rallies in OH, O was in Canton and his rally was packed to the gills, as where R was decently packed. God Help us! It's starting to look like 08 all over again...CAN anyone in OH verify what I saw on the tube or was it angled differently for R?

Romney is running as if he'd taken lessons from Bill Simon's failed campaign in California. Simon had a very successful run against the RINO Dick Riordan and then booted the whole thing once he had the nomination.

“Is that too late?

LUNTZ: Yes – in a simple answer, yes. That should have been done three or four months ago. “

What a pathetic joke. In Canada, federal election campaigns last a total of six weeks, from the time the writ is issued, until ballots are cast. IMHO, U.S. Presidential election campaigns last an insanely long time. Other than political junkies (such as FReepers, and their opposite numbers in the DUmp), who can pay attention for that long?

That's true Kaslin, where in 2008 ? saw lots and lots of Obama 2008 campaign signs,,, this year ? not so much, even in a very liberal pro-Obama area.
I see more Romney signs than Obama signs and in this area it says a lot.

“Republicans are more enthusiastic than Democrats about voting this year in general, and that enthusiasm has actually...grown since early August.”

Voter intensity for Republicans is much higher than for Democrats and this is being seen in absentee voter request numbers and early vote returns.Just the absentee requests In Ohio being tracked here by LS and LdSentinal at FR gives definite hope.

Even new voter registration in Florida is sharply DOWN among Democrats and sharply up among Republicans. Look at these numbers, according to a Chicago Tribune article.

2004/2008/2012
Reps 111586/95525/128039
Dems 158957/259894/11365 (11,365 is not a typo)

Even in CHICAGO, Obama’s hometown, there are 225,000 less people on the voting rolls than 2008 with only 4 more weeks to register. This is again according to a Chicago Tribune article. You know most of these voters will be Dems.

If voter intensity is on the Republicans’ side, than how can ANY of these MSM polls predicting a Dems turnout exceeding that of the “perfect storm” 2008 election be valid??

cross-posting:

Yes, and the CBS news was pimping their biased poll tonight, and decided to try to highlight an undecided voter in Ohio.

Do you know who it was? You’ve guessed it before I even tell you, right?

A supposedly “moderate Republican” female karate instructor, who is leaning toward Obama because Romney hasn’t “moved toward the middle,” and doesn’t understand “regular people.”

WTF?? WTF?? WTF?? WTF??

Are you freaking kidding me? No wonder the country is doomed, if these people are the “undecided”.

And you know CBS went out of their way to find a (phony) Republican dissatisfied with Romney who reinforces the stereotypes about Romney that only the media agree with. The only people who think Mitt is “too extreme” are left-wing media-types.

There’s no way any REAL “Moderate Republican” could possibly think Romney’s too right-wing. Mitt is tailor-made for moderate Repubs and swing-voters.

Yet these scumbags highlight this woman to help Zero, of course.

The Fourth Estate are truly a bunch of bastards - I despise them. The Romney campaign might not want to complain about the media, but I WILL.

If Obama is re-elected its proof that America as we know it is finished. Our founding fathers will be rolling over in their graves. If people want to reject Capitalism and instead embrace Socialism its truly a sad day for our nation..but this is what the media wants, and this is what the Dems want, total power by controlling every aspect of our lives..This is what Obama said in 1998 in that Loyota University tape, and it turns out he was right, give enough people free goodies and they will vote for you.
Do I think Romney is a flawed candidate, absolutely..but if Obama is re-elected it won’t have anything to do with Romney sucking, it will have to do with people wanting to live under Socialist control. It wouldn’t matter who the GOP chose as their nominee, if this is what people want, America as we know it will never be the same again

I agree with you about Florida. The Chicago Tribune was griping about the voter ID restrictions causing the very sharp drop in Dem registrations. I truly believe another major factor is Republican enthusiasm and Democrats unenthused.

I truly don’t believe FL is going to be in the Obama column this year. I notice that Romney-Ryan don’t seem very panicked about it. I think they’ve seen the voter registration figures as well.

Now all these states have Repub Govs so that Dem
Talking point is shelved by the 2012 Obama media lie and spin .
The media dropped the voter purge impact spin too because it conflicts with these push poll lies and spin saying the Messiah is way ahead !

Now we know why most of Europe BANNED polling before any election .

These polls are working overtime at trying to blow a massive amount of smoke up America's ass.

What will be much more interesting will be to hear their explanation on NOV 7th of WHAT went WRONG and WHY ROMNEY WON despite all these polls saying he wouldn't.

O’Reilly has Dick Morris on to help explain the polling and BOR is so condescending and rude to him. Treats him like a parent scolding a child. He did it really bad late last week and again tonight. I like to hear Morris, but simply can’t stand Bill anymore. His behavior with Morris and his horrible lecturing of Monica Lewinski is just getting out of hand.

Just go out and vote, this is all meant to depress people..and I hope that people don’t fall for it. Is Romney not the best candidate in the world, absolutely, but we have to get Obama out, that is my priority..I will deal with Romney later, but we have to get Obama out otherwise its over for this country.
The Media knows that people still believe the crap that comes out of their traps, and believe in bogus polls, someone sitting at home who will vote for Romney will see this BS and think why bother, that is what the media(And lets stop calling them the media, its pravda, its another arm of the Dem party) we must all go to the polls and do what we have to do to kick Obama’s Commie ass out!

Yeah if Obama has Wisconsin in the bag why is he even campaigning there? Its just common sense, you dont waste your time in a state that you already won, it would be like seeing Obama campaign in Vermont, or Romney campaigning in Texas or South Carolina, its just that simple
