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.
Poll shows Americans think polls are wildly inaccurate. Jesus be a lock on the gun cabinet.
But Republicans are particularly likely to believe that the polls are unfair, reporting by a 71-13 percent margin that polls are biased against their candidate. Members of the Tea Party suspect intentional skewing by a remarkable 84-5 percent margin.
Members of the Tea Party also believe by overwhelming margins that President Obama is a Muslim, a Socialist, and that he was born in Kenya. They also believe the Earth is about 6,000 years old and that evolution is massive scientific fakery, and that climatology is even more massive scientific fakery. Now it's polls that are wrong.
Wanna bet 84% of Tea Party faithful will think President Obama stole the election on November 7th and that he has to be stopped by any means necessary?
What are the odds of that?
Hey, wingnut assholes aren't smart enough to understand basic biology, climatology, geography, law, politics, comparative religion or the Constitution. Why would they understand statistics?
