Liberal Poll-emics

Posted by redsatellite on October 29, 2008

Meanwhile at the pseudo-venerable Washington Post, liberals being liberals, they’re discussing the VALIDITY of all these national polls that show Barack Obama with an insurmountable lead. As we close in on the Big Day, the secular progressives are double and triple checking the data….just to make sure.

“We believe it is a very close race, and something that is frankly very winnable,” Sarah Simmons, director of strategy for the McCain campaign, said yesterday. Few analysts outside the McCain campaign appear to share this view.

And pollsters this time around will not make the mistake that the Gallup organization made 60 years ago — ending their polling more than a week before the election and missing a last-minute surge in support for Truman. Every day brings dozens of new state and national presidential polls, a trend that is expected to continue up to Election Day.

Heaven forbid, were McCain to somehow pull this one out of the fire. Of course, liberals have quickly forgotten how they manipulated the early Exit Polls in 2004– spreading the rumor that John Kerry was WINNING.

Still, there appears to be an undercurrent of worry among some polling professionals and academics. One reason is the wide variation in Obama leads: Just yesterday, an array of polls showed the Democrat leading by as little as two points and as much as 15 points. The latest Washington Post-ABC News tracking poll showed the race holding steady, with Obama enjoying a lead of 52 percent to 45 percent among likely voters.

Don’t you worry little liberals…the media is on your side. The fix is in. You will be taking the day off anyway…so go ahead and party- party like it’s 1999.
