Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Washington comPost poll shows tie with Romney and Obama…with a D+9 sample

For those of you on the left, that means the poll sampled 9% more Democrats than Republicans.  Which is fascinating, considering that the Big Blue Wave of 2008 showed Democrats outnumbering Republicans at the polls by 7%.  In other words, this new poll from the comPost samples an electorate that is MORE Democratic than the biggest Democratic wave EVER…and the best Obama can do with a 9% advantage in poll sampling is a TIE.

I normally don’t get too caught up in polls this far out.  After all, McCain was doing well against Obama at this time in 2008, and Carter was leading Reagan at this point in 1980, according to the polls.  We all know how both of those turned out.  But I do find polls like this one interesting, where they sample in such a way as to get the results that they seek.  Although I’m sure the comPost was hoping that a D+9 poll would have yielded better results for their boy.

As for the comPost: Nope, no liberal media bias!

  1. No surprise here, with the reporting and polling by the comPost. If there was an honest poll, the disparity would be much higher with Romney the clear leader. As they can’t have that happen they rig their polls. No surprise there.
    Liberalism is a serious mental disorder.

  2. Of course, this also makes the assumption that they are telling the truth. Then again, I see little from these guys to make me give them the benefit of the doubt they they ARE telling the truth….

  3. It was also a poll of registered voters not likely voters. The polling, I’m sure they have of likely voters with D+9 I’m sure is much worse for Obama, and is purposely not reported.

  4. It is kind of funny, while pitiful at the same time…it actually looks as if these libs actually think that if they CLAIM something via a specific poll, it will influence real voters. I can’t seem to remember EVER going to the ballot booth and thinking, “Well, I was GOING to vote for this candidate, but WOW, the polling data is WAY compelling…NOW I want to vote for the other guy”.
    But hey, maybe there really ARE people out there like that???????

  5. Kevin,
    I think the psychology behind publishing these polls is people want to be part of the popular crowd or the winner. So they say, hey, Obama is going to win, so jump on the band wagon, be part of the cool crowd.

    It reminds me of when I was at FSU back in the 90’s. After FSU won the Football championship back in January ’94, applications to FSU went up massively ( I can’t remember the exact number but it was a ridiculous percentage increase) High School seniors wanted to be part of a winner.

    Publishing these trash polls are meant to give the perception to the mildly attentive independent voter who votes only every four years and is on the fence that Obama is going to win. That voter then is very likely to vote for Obama to be part of the winning team. Unfortunately, most voters fall into this category.

    Most voters are not like us, reading superior blogs like Crushliberalism.com, reading the news, listening to what is said and not said and discussing the issues with friend, acquaintances and people of like and unlike view points.
