Polls show Obama beating Romney in swing states; Fox News says polls skewed
 

romney-obama-smallAccording to a number of mainstream polls, the Obama Administration is beginning to lead in the battleground states but an article in Fox News contends that the polls are biased and skewed in favor of the Democrats.

 

 

The conflict over the validity of the polls come on he heels of a week of tremendous poll news for President Barack Obama showing leads in major swing states which Republican Mitt Romney must win to survive a loss on election day.  

According to the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion, today, President Barack Obama is now leading Mitt Romney in the battleground state of North Carolina, New Hampshire and Nevada.

In North Carolina, the lead is  48%-46% among likely voters including those who are undecided yet leaning toward a candidate.

In the presidential contest in New Hampshire, the President has the support of a majority — 51% — of likely voters, including those who are undecided yet leaning toward a candidate.  This compares with 44% who favor Mitt Romney.

Among likely voters in Nevada including those who are undecided yet leaning toward a candidate, 49% support President Barack while 47% are for Mitt Romney

Last week, the poll find Obama 5% over Romney in Wisconsin.

This new polling information comes a day after a new poll from CBS News, the New York Times and Quinnipiac University shows Obama extending his leads in the key states of Ohio and Florida, while also being up big in Pennsylvania. The Florida poll, in particular, is notable because that state hasn’t trended toward Obama as much as others have.

He leads 53 percent to 43 percent in Ohio, 53 percent to 44 percent in Florida and 54 percent to 42 percent in Pennsylvania. The first two states are considered crucial to the 2012 contest — bordering on must-wins for Mitt Romney — while the latter is a blue-leaning state that the GOP had hoped to put in play.

However, according to Fox News, the polls this year are misleading and, more particularly "skewed" in favor of Democrats.

 

In an article entitled the Truth about 2012 polls, the article states, "In order to address this, some conservative outlets have taken matters into their own hands. One website, www.unskewedpolls.com, has begun reweighting mainstream polls to more closely track the demographic assumptions that the conservative leaning Rasmussem Reports uses. The results have been staggering: the re-weighted polls all put Romney ahead of Obama with margins of between 3 and 11 points. If one looks at the Real Clear Politics average Obama is currently up four percent over Romney. But according to UnSkewedPolls.com, Romney has a 7.8 percent edge on Obama."

It must be nice when you can get the rules written just for you.

There must come a time when even the most disinterested, blasé, apolitical person living has to look up from whatever else occupies his interest and say, “Wait a damned minute. This just ain’t right and we’re not gonna do it.”
