Plurality of Americans Say Polls Are Biased Toward Obama

The Hill: 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.

Since a lot of you

don't watch any TV I can fill you in. I watch the 24 hour news channels occasionally to see if any of them have decided to put news on their stations.

You probably know the only news source for most self respecting republicans is FOX news. For the past several days every night they drum the idea that the polls are skewed, O'riely, Hannity, Gretchen, they all do it. It's said over and over from so many sources that by the end of the day, how could anybody possible think it might be more than opinion, with no actual facts. I mean this is a NEWS station constantly repeating this. Not to mention we all know that when your guy is behind in the polls that you tend to latch on to any idea of why more people don't like your guy.

This article means nothing. Dick Morris is their main guy pushing this whole idea and it seems the best he can do is take WAGs as to why Romney is behind in the polls. Not to mention he is the most reprehensible opinion factory that for some reason has a voice on the biggest main stream news outlet. The thought of this guy makes my stomach turn.

There is no conspiracy here except for Fox News manipulating public opinion.

That makes them conspiracy theorists.

And therefore we must shun them.

No takers?

Don't you see the setup?

They're setting up Romney for the win.
