Given that no credible person could say with a straight face that Obama is doing even a mediocre job as president, how to make sense of polls showing him ahead? Simple — the polls are conducted by his fellow oligarchical collectivists, who cheat:
The latest CNN/ORC poll released [yesterday] shows a wider lead for President Obama than the previous CNN/ORC poll but it is doubly skewed. It massively under-samples independents while it also over-samples Democratic voters. The CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll official reports Obama at 52 to percent and Mitt Romney at 46 percent. Unskewed, the data reveals a 53 percent to 45 percent lead for Romney.
This new CNN/ORC survey, unlike many other analyzed, not only over-samples Democratic voters, but also massively under-samples independent voters, to produce a result more favorable to Barack Obama. This survey’s sample includes 397 registered Republicans and 441 registered Democrats. But the survey included a total of 822 registered voters, leaving only 37 independent voters at most. The survey clearly under-sampled independent and Republican voters.
What is the point of even taking a poll if you are going to play tricks to get unrepresentative numbers? Hopefully it is only to discourage those of us who want to vote Obama out of office before he can finish fundamentally transforming our country into a Third World ruin. I would hate to think the idea is to make results to be produced by industrial scale voter fraud more believable.
