Meet the New Poll Truthers, Not The Same As The Old Poll Truthers

Because those who questioned methodology, partisan split, and turnout assumptions when polls showed Obama ahead were crazy Denialists in a war with Media-Approved Narrative Reality.

But now that the polls are turning against Obama, the Obama campaign itself is questioning party ID and such.

Well, Team Obama is apparently freaked out by this poll and the traction it’s getting because I just got a long memo from them, written by Joel Benenson, president of the Benenson Strategy Group, questioning the accuracy of Gallup’s likely voter sample:

The latest Gallup/ USA Today Battleground survey showing President Obama and Governor Romney tied with women in battleground states (48-4 is an extreme outlier, defying the trends seen in every other battleground and national poll.

This result underscores deep flaws in Gallup’s likely voter screen.

Only 2 years ago the distortions in Gallup’s likely voter screen were exposed, leaving Gallup’s survey 9 points off the mark just days before the election.

...

We believe the problem with Gallup’s outlying data is rooted in their 7 question likely voter screen, which distorts the composition of likely voters, leading to erratic and inaccurate results.

In Gallup’s current survey, Obama leads women by 53-44 among registered voters in the Battleground States, which is closely aligned with results from other pollsters.

It is only when the likely voter screen is applied that their results become so out of step.

The Obama Poll Truther claims the registered voter poll is much closer to "reality" (for some ranges of reality).

As I pointed out in the last post, the USAToday article about the poll addressed this:

Gallup notes that its likely voter model predicted a slightly more Democratic outcome than the actual results in the last two presidential elections, in 2008 and 2004. In both, the likely voter model more accurately predicted the final outcome than the registered-voter sample.

But What If Obama's Firewall Is Actually On Fire? Media rushes in to repair Obama's firewall.

12 I posted this link w/an excerpt in the last poll thread, and here is another excerpt:

Everything we think we “know” about this election is based exclusively on polls, which despite enjoying the undue respect of the public are utter sh**. There are maybe five pollsters in America who could not successfully be sued for malpractice. There is nothing so common and useless in American media/”politics” than inept polls. Worse, it is easy and cheap to produce a “poll,” which hustlers and newspapers (forgive the redundancy), know is obviously inaccurate. Good polls, by good pollsters, are very difficult to produce ad very expensive.

...

Most polls/pollsters showing Obama ahead are Wrong. Demonstrably Wrong. Intentional Obama Propaganda. The media won’t report it, because the media is the culprit. If you want good polls check out Doug Schoen, Scott Rasmussen, or Pat Caddell.

Something is seriously out of whack when partisans are counting coup about pre-election polls. They should have no effect at all.

On Ace's second circuit, he suddenly flicks the crop, and it hits the COB underneath his behind … against his sex … The shock runs through him, and it’s the sweetest, strangest, hedonistic feeling … Drew's body convulses at the sweet, stinging bite. His nipples harden and elongate from the assault, and he moans loudly, pulling on the leather cuffs.”

120 Gallup notes that its likely voter model predicted a slightly more Democratic outcome than the actual results in the last two presidential elections, in 2008 and 2004.

This is what the media calls a "fan-caused disaster."

The narrative is that the girl needs a roof over her head and she also needs to know how to please the providers of said roof. Nasty, nasty!

I noticed the wide spread between swing state and non-swing state women in the poll. I'm beginning to think that Romney really knows how to market to women which is why swing states, where his ads are, are so different. Most of those ads have seemed bland to me, buy I may not be his target audience.

Likely women voters in non-swing states: 52-44 in Obama's favor
Likely women voters in swing states: 48-48 tie
