Another Leftist LIARS Poll... This joke of a "poll" inflates the sampling of d-cRAT socialists to D+9 greater than Repubs while also inflating the percentage of independents beyond reality, and it further compounds the joke by presenting results for only "registered" voters (which is meaningless) instead of "likely" voters. In spite of this obvious manipulation of data to favor d-cRAT socialists, the "poll" still shows Romney and OBOZO tied -- which means, in reality, that Romney is WAY AHEAD of OBOZO in voter preference (exactly as one would expect).

*the D/R/I in this sample is 33/24/36. In d-cRAT wave election of 2008, the split was 39/32/29, while in the 2010 midterms - which threw dingbat pelosi out as House Speaker and gave Repubs control of the House, it was 35/35/30, both figures from CNN’s exit polls. In this "poll", there is a split that’s even wider than the d-cRAT wave election of 2008, and yet it can only produce a tie for OBOZO among registered voters!

Don't fall for this trap, either.

If they lie about their poll results and manipulate the data for their own propaganda purposes, why would anyone take their self-reported sampling statistics (e.g., number of democrats, number of Republicans, number of Independents) seriously?

It’s just another magician’s sleight of hand, always trying to divert attention from the big lies by offering some semblance of plausibility for the smaller supporting lies.

It’s poison.

All of it.

A new poll out today by the Washington Post and ABC News shows presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney and President Obama locked in a dead heat.

A pair of tepid jobs reports, landmark Supreme Court decisions on health-care and immigration laws, and an unprecedented barrage of negative ads have shaped the opening months of the fall presidential campaign. The impact on the horse race: virtually none.

According to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll, President Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney remain in a deadlocked contest, tied at 47 percent among registered voters and basically where they...
