Fair and Balanced? Fox News releases D+9 poll favoring Obama
I’d sure like to know what happened when George Soros had that “lunch” with Roger Ailes. Idiots like Blob Beckel can slander Jews and get away with it. Alan Colmes can mock Rick Santorum’s dead child and get away with it. And I’m not even going to get into other leftists like Geraldo, Juan Williams or Shemp Smith. It’s gotten so bad at Fox News that they are over sampling Democrats by 9 points to show favorable trends for Obama over Mitt Romney. The latest Fox News poll has a sample size of 44% Democrat, 35% Republican and 14% independent. During the 2008 election when no one knew who Obama was, and everyone hated Bush, the electoral breakdown was Democrat 39% Republican 32%. In 2010 it was 35% for both Republican and Democrat. This year’s best estimates for Obama would be a Democrat +2 or 3 advantage (nation wide.) And that’s being optimistic for Obama. Gallup current has the entire country at D+3.7. Yet for whatever reason, polls like this and other liberal biased organizations need to prop up the Democrat sampling in order to get favorable numbers for Obama. Compare this (and today’s CNN poll of Registered Voters) with Rasmussen and Gallup. Rasmussen has Romney up by 4% and Gallup has Obama up by 2%. Far different than the pathetically biased Fox News and CNN polls.
Since that Ailes/Soros lunch meeting, Glenn Beck is gone, and Fox News continues to give air time to these clueless leftists and slam conservatives. /me just shakes my head.
