PPP, Another Democrat Leaning Poll Weighted +4 Democrats with Faux Results, Obama’s lead up to 5 in Ohio Over Romney, 50%-45%


How disingenuous could some of these political polls really be?

Once again the PPP poll has come out with some rather suspect polling, done so to make it appear that Barack Obama got some kind of tremendous bounce from the DNC convention. The PPP poll shoes that Obama has a 5 point lead over Mitt Romney in the battleground state of Ohio, 50% to 45%. Really? Is that your final answer? In order to get this polling data for Obama to be up by 5, the sampling used was as follows, Sampling of the PPP poll: Democrats 41%, Republican 37%, Independent/Other 22%. The full polling results can be seen HERE.

Both candidates have seen their images improve with Ohio voters in the wake of the conventions. Obama now breaks even in his approval rating at 48%, after being under water with 46% of voters approving and 51% disapproving of him a month ago. Romney’s numbers are up from a 41/52 favorability rating a month ago as well, but he still remains unpopular. Only 44% see him favorably to 49% with a negative opinion. Romney actually leads 46-44 with independents but Obama has the overall advantage thanks to a more unified party base. He leads 86/11 with Democrats, compared to Romney’s 83/13 advantage with Republicans.

With all due respect to OTB, I would hardly consider polling sampling used from exit polling from 2008 that was a once in a lifetime election with Obama/Democrat voting at record highs and Republican voting suppressed. Yes, I do tend to dismiss the PPP poll. Sorry, when a candidate has a lead with the all important Independent vote, I find it a bit unrealistic to believe that Obama is up by 5.

We shall see in November and how many more bad jobs reports come out. What we conveniently do not see in the poll is who do Ohioians think Obama has handled the number one issue in the United States, the economy. Sorry, this poll is what is called an outlier to get to the magical unicorn number of 50%.

      IF on the campaign trail Mitt Romney and/or Paul Ryan would CLEARLY identify the enemy by informing Americans in regards to Barack Obama’s Marxist Ideology that influences his hidden agenda that defines his campaign slogans “Hope and Change” amd “Forward” maybe the current polls would reflect a “right” direction that would be reflected at ballot stations throughout the United States on November 6th.

      Nevertheless … my prayer is the the recent released and about to released films produced by Dinesh D’Souza and the late Andrew Breitbart respectively will be a revelations for those who sincerely have yet to get it.

      Anti-Obama Pic #2 Political Documentary: Now Bigger Than 3 Michael Moore Movies
      Sunday September 9, 2012

      It’s a heated contest between conservatives vs liberals in the political documentary genre, too. 2016 Obama’s America grossed $26.2M by end of today (give or take some bucks) and passed 4 of Michael Moore’s five political documentaries to become the #2 all-time biggest. …

      Based on conservative author Dinesh D’Souza’s 2010 best-selling book The Roots Of Obama’s Rage, it initially opened in only one theater in Houston on July 13th, then expanded to 1,000+ theaters and now 2,000+ locations. by Friday. 2016 Obama’s America is co-directed by D’Souza and John Sullivan and produced by Academy Award winner Gerald R. Molen (co-producer of Schindler’s List). 2016 Obama’s America detractors decry it as a slick infomercial heavy with conspiracy theories. BUT D’SOUZA SAYS HE MADE THE FILM TO MOTIVATE MOVIEGOERS TO QUESTION WHAT AN OBAMA SECOND TERM WOULD LOOK LIKE.

      Movie ’2016?: Anti – Barack Obama Movie Stuns Hollywood For #3 at Box Office … Maybe Those on The Fence & Still Undecided Might Want to Take a Look See

      “Obama has a dream, the dreams of his father. The sins of colonialism be set right, and America be down-sized … America has a dream from Our Founding Fathers, that together we must perfect Liberty and America must grow so that Liberty grows. Which dream will we carry into 2016?”

      This polling organization is telling the story the way the Democrats require it to be. Threats from the campaign by Axelrod will be soon to follow if anything changes.

      Emails suggest Axelrod leaned on Gallup after unfavorable poll
