BOGUS CNN Poll has Race Tied Between Romney & Obama with a +11D Sampling


The final CNN poll has Romney and Obama tied at 49% apiece. But, is the Presidential race really tied? How exactly is a poll tied when Romney leads Independents by 22 points?

And the CNN/ORC International survey not only indicates a dead heat in the race for the White House, but also on almost every major indicator of President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney that was tested in the poll.

At face value, it looks like a tie and the meme that the liberal MSM wants “We the People” to believe. But, is the Presidential race between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama really tied or is this just one big fabricated charade to make the election appear closer than it really is?

Good grief, after reading through the litany of data we have discovered this rather interesting tidbit from page 29 of the poll describing the methodology. If that is what one wants to call it. This poll has a +11D sampling.

Respondents who reported that they had already cast an absentee ballot or voted early were automatically classified as likely voters. Among those likely voters, 41% described themselves as Democrats, 29% described themselves as Independents, and 30% described themselves as Republicans.

WHAT A JOKE … in order to have the poll be a tie, CNN had to weight the sampling as a +11D. This is unreal and should be deemed criminal.

The poll claims that neither party has any advantage in the enthusiasm gap. An equal amount of registered Democrats and Republicans have described themselves as extremely or very enthusiastic about voting. Really, I guess that would be the case with a +11D skewed poll. Sorry, but as referenced at the Gay Patriot, with Romney ahead in so many polls with Independents, how is it a tie? We have been told all election season that Independents would decide the race, yet now when they are breaking for Romney … the line has been moved in the sand to over-sample Democrats.

What might be even more comical than the sampling is the fact that Romney still beat Obama in who would handle the economy better if elected. And we wonder why RCP has the polling a tie. Sorry, but RCP is doing no one any favors by including faux polls in their averages.

      just like john Stewart….
      weeelllllll some guy on a blog says it just doesn’t look right?

      we will all see tomorrow……id be betting on the pro’s…..not some guy on a blog who isn’t a professional pollster….

      so when the pollsters are proved right….Im curious what your talking points will be then

      of course you failed to mention your own “gold standard” in pollsters has the exact same results
      SM: There are no talking points. What you miss here is that I am actually interested to see why models can be so different. BTW, some guy on a blog? Why do you even bother to read and comment here, obviously you are intrigued.

      The key factor is going to be turnout which models are all over the place with. Make no mistake about it, there will be some with egg on their face and might want to get out of the polling business.

      There is one thing we can both agree on, The ultimate poll is election day … we shall see.

      So if CNN had done a +4D sampling the poll would have had Romney up by 6 or 7?

      The MSM will do anything to drag this president over the finish line. How corrupt could the MSM possibly be?

      What would be neat – is if we could turn the CNN complex into a mall or something people would
      enjoy and actually use again!

      Waste not, want not.
