 The Art Of Polling; Should We Trust Polls?; Race For The White House


Insane Presidential Poll Numbers For Obama and McCain – October


Opinion Polls: Getting the results you want

Yes Prime Minister Clip – Who Reads the Papers


Congratulations President McCain!

The pump and dump drive-by mainstream media who are in the tank for Obama have been very busy polling.

If you believe their polls, Obama is winning the popular vote by 10% to 15% and will be the next President.

There are many, many ways to cheat and get the result you want: 

  1. the sample size of the poll.
  2. who is polled–adults, registered voters, or likely voters.
  3. when the poll is taken–overnight, during the week, or on the weekend.
  4. the weighting of responders–Democrats, Republicans and independents.
  5. the wording of the question.
  6. the order of the questions.
  7. the response rate.

The only poll that counts is the actual election.

Unfortunatley, even here Obama and his allies in ACORN, its affiliates, and clones are also trying to steal the election with voter registration fraud and voter fraud.

The deep secret about big media, people and politicians is that they are all ignorant about the issues and policies.

Big media is polling ignorant people about issues and policies that both are deeply ignorant of for politicians that are ignorant of the American people’s concerns.

The blind leading the blind.

The American people are deeply concerned about illegal immigration and want it stopped and the illegal aliens sent home.

The pump and dump drive-by mainstream media, along with the Presidential candidates of both parties totally ignore the issue.

No questions about this issue has been asked during the Presidential and Vice-Presidential debates.

Polls: Obama or McCain Is Winning

By Steven M. Warshawsky

“…Before concluding, let’s look at a typical poll of the races in two important “battleground” states.  This poll was done by CNN/Time on October 7 (also taken from RCP).  According to this poll, Obama is leading McCain in Ohio, 50% to 47%, and in Wisconsin, 51% to 46%.  The headline for the poll:  “New Obama gains in battleground states.”  Yet the margin of error for the poll was +/- 3.5 points.  This means that, based on the results of the CNN/Time poll itself, McCain could be leading in Ohio by a margin of 50.5% to 46.5% and in Wisconsin by a margin of 49.5% to 47.5%.

Of course, in the past several weeks there have been polls showing McCain leading the race nationally and in the battleground states.  Are the results of such polls simply to be disregarded?  On what grounds?  Why should the polls that show Obama in the lead be given more weight than the polls that show McCain in the lead?  Such reporting reflects the bias of the mainstream media, not the “truth” about how the American people are going to vote this November.  Moreover, the idea – implicit in the daily fluctuations of the polls – that large numbers of American voters are regularly switching back and forth between McCain and Obama makes no sense.  Who knows any real people who are going through such mental and political gymnastics?

In short, the polls do not show that Obama is “winning” the race, anymore than they show that McCain is “winning” the race.  What they show is that the contest is very close, and will not be decided until election day — when the American people actually go to the polls and cast their votes. 


For the reasons I’ve stated before, I predict that more votes will be cast for McCain than for Obama.


Book Review: “Mobocracy”, by Matthew Robinson

“…All of this would be meaningless if it were not for the fact that the media and even the public puts much stock in polls. The media uses it to make elections into horse-races and to support its positions on social issues. Because of this, polling can have the tendency to change the color, tone, length and intensity of a debate. Polls create an environment during elections that cause candidates to drop out of races even before they can educate the public on their views. This is because a candidate who does not poll well in the early running will be ignored by the media and will find donations shrink and finally disappear. A kind of “Catch-22” for an unknown player. He cannot get his message out without money, and he cannot get money unless he can get his message out.

Mark Twain has often been quoted, “There are three kinds of lies: lies, damn lies and statistics.” After reading Mr. Robinson’s book you will come to realize that polling often falls into one of these three categories. Yet, he does make clear that polling is a tool, even a weapon, and like tools and weapons it can be used or it can be abused.

Polling can be used by industry to help shape products. It can be used by sociologists and scientists to advance medicine and psychology. It can be used for entertainment and trivia. It can also be used in politics to help gauge the effectiveness of public campaigns.

Ultimately, an educated public is the best way to fix the problems with polling. Not only will it make our understanding of polling data and its significance more profound, but perhaps the data itself will be made more accurate.

Matthew Robinson’s book clearly explains the complexity of polling and its effects on politics. His analysis succinctly illustrates that polling is not so much a democratizing influence as it is a disturbing one. “Mobocracy” provides a great opportunity to learn about the art, science and necromancy of polling.”

“…Mobocracy: How the Media’s Obsession with Polling Twists the News, Alters Elections and Undermines Democracy, by Matthew Robinson. Prima Publishing, 366 pages, $24.95

MASS-MEDIA POLLING IS JUSTIFIABLY SKEWered in this spirited work by Matthew Robinson, managing editor of the conservative weekly Human Events and an adjunct fellow of the Claremont Institute. He begins with the abuses of polling and ends with a stout defense of the American Constitution and the statesmanship and political journalism that helped launch and legitimize it. …”


The return of McAmnesty the Democrat Suck-Up

By Michelle Malkin

“…Maybe McCain needs to lay low until Election Day and let Sarah do the talking.

If you are dreading the upcoming presidential debate, you are not the only one.”
