Poll on Polls Being Biased … Plurality of Americans Believe Polls Biased for Obama, 7 in 10 Republicans Say Pollsters Intentionally Skewing Results to Help Obama
Even a liberal poll has the conclusion that there is bias polling to benefit Obama …
With all the talk of bias and skewed political polls, today we are presented with a poll on pools being biased. As reported at The Hill, the results of the poll were that a plurality of Americans believe that the polls are biased to benefit President Barack Obama. Also, more than 7 in 10 Republicans believe the bias polls are intentionally skewed to help Obama and a remarkable 84-5 percent margin from the Tea Party. And who came to this conclusion that the polls were skewed? Those right-wingers at the Daily Kos and SEIU of course.
A plurality of Americans and more than seven in 10 Republicans say pollsters are intentionally skewing results to benefit President Obama, according to a new poll released Tuesday.
Some 42 percent of voters surveyed by Daily Kos and SEIU believe pollsters are manipulating their sample sizes to benefit the incumbent president, while 40 percent do not. An additional 18 percent said they were not sure. That’s evidence that Republican claims that Democrats and minority voters are being oversampled in national polls could be resonating — and potentially undermining the momentum of the president’s early lead.
But Republicans are particularly likely to believe that the polls are unfair, reporting by a 71-13 percent margin that polls are biased against their candidate. Members of the Tea Party suspect intentional skewing by a remarkable 84-5 percent margin.
Hmm, I wonder what sampling the Daily Kos used to get the results that polls are intentionally skewed to benefit Obama, +9D? That would be a joke. However, the same cannot be said on the recently released CNN poll that shows Romney closing the gap on Obama only because CNN skewed the sampling less. That was not the case in the recent NY Times – Quinnipiac polls that had a +9D and greater sampling.
