Surprise! (Or Not) Skewed Polls Tout Obama Leading Romney

Obama’s convention bounce is evaporating. Rasmussen today has Romney up 3 points. Today’s Gallup tracking poll had Obama up 5, a loss of 2 points over two days. Gallup's 7 day rolling average is expected to continue to come down over the next few days. The media continues to trumpet new polls which show Obama with 3 point lead nationally and significant leads in the battleground states of Florida, Ohio and Virginia.

As is routine, these new polls oversample Democrats.

The loudest media coverage is touting new NBC/WSJ polls of three key swing states. The polls, purportedly of likely voters, show Obama with 5 point leads in Florida and Virginia and a 7 point lead in Ohio. In VA and FL, the NBC poll assumes an electorate very similar to the one in 2008. In OH, the NBC poll assumes an electorate that is more Democrat than the one in 08.

That isn’t going to happen. The electorate will not be close to as Democrat as in 08, never mind being more Democrat.

There is something else funky with the NBC poll. There is almost no discernible difference between Registered Voter results and Likely Voter results. This runs counter to other polling, and history, which finds a definite Democrat skew to RV results. Even demographic and partisan data is virtually the same. This suggests there is something wrong with their LV screen.

A new CBS/New York Times poll shows Obama with a 3-point lead nationally, among Likely Voters. The poll finds Obama has an 8-point lead among Registered Voters. CBS no longer makes available the partisan composition of its poll, but its numbers suggest it oversampled Democrats as well. Both Romney and Obama win 90+% of their respective party's vote, but Romney beats Obama among Independents by 11 points. The only way Romney can win Independents by such a large margin and still trail Obama is if the sample is heavily skewed in favor of Democrats.

The electorate will absolutely be less Democrat than it was in 2008.

Oversampling Democrats is simply part of an effort to create an air of inevitability for Obama's reelection.

America Attacked: No time for a Metro-Sexual President

By Lloyd Marcus

Regarding the Libya attack, Romney said,“It's never too early for the United States government to condemn attacks on Americans and to defend our values.” In our Oprah-rized, touchy-feely metro-sexual society, the mainstream media and Democrats are trying to portray Romney as an out-of-control reckless cowboy.

This mindset that the slightest forcefulness and decisiveness is deemed to be extreme reflects the mainstream media's and the Democrat's decades long War on Testosterone. The left takes everything to its extreme. For example: If you believe the definition of marriage should remain between one man and one woman, the MSM and Democrats accuse you of hating gays and seeking violence against them.

Little boys acting like boys is cause for the left to recommend that they be drugged.

Obama's response to the murder of a U.S. ambassador and three staffers is metro-sexual at best. During Obama's press conference in response to the attack, a reporter asked if the Obama administration considered the attack in Libya an act of war. Obama would not respond to the question.

Is real manhood a no-no in America today? In typical fashion, I am sure the left will attempt to distort my celebration of manhood. They will accuse me of attacking womanhood and requesting that Obama act like an idiotic macho Neanderthal. I am not.

Rather than the mainstream media addressing Obama's wimpy response to “our houses” abroad being violated and Americans being murdered, the media is ganging up on Romney for his swift and strong response.

I watched a John Wayne movie the other day in which his character thought his son was dead. When his adult son reappeared, the Duke punched him. “That's for scaring me half to death!” Yes, the movie character’s response was over the top. And, I am not condoning a father punching his son.

But folks, I have to tell you that it was extremely refreshing to witness male toughness in the father and his son. The father and son were not crying on the Oprah show or discussing their dysfunction with Dr Phil.

Manhood is being wimped down folks, from pro football to committed heterosexuality being branded closed-minded. Elementary school kids are taught to be open-minded enough to give h***sexuality a try before deciding their sexual preference.

Unlike their liberal counterparts, conservative women do not despise testosterone. Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann would display stronger leadership in response to these attacks on America than our liberal apologetic metro-sexual president.

As our enemies feel more and more embolden by tepid responses, America needs a real Commander-in-Chief.
