NY Times and Liberal Media Caught Skewing Their Polls for Obama

( - A New York Times/CBS News poll released Saturday that showed broad bipartisan support for President Obama’s health care reform, over-sampled Obama voters compared to McCain voters.

Out of 895 respondents, only 24 percent were Republicans, while 38 percent were Democrats, and 38 percent were independents, according to a June 20 release from CBS News. While the release says the sampling was conducted at random, those numbers are significantly below the 32.6 percent who identify themselves as Republican according to a May survey from the nonpartisan Rasmussen Reports.

Similarly, the Times/CBS poll said 48 percent of respondents had voted for Obama, versus 25 percent for McCain, a nearly two-to-one advantage for Obama supporters.

Had those results been reflected in the November presidential election, Obama would have garnered 66 percent of the vote to McCain’s 34 percent, Conway, president & CEO of “the polling company,” told

“Was the vote 66-34?

In 2008, Obama won 53 percent of the vote, McCain won 46 percent.

The poll was skewed toward Democrats and Obama supporters because the Times and CBS made it so.

Harder to find McCain voters, I guess.

Especially if you only call registered Democrats with Obama stickers on their VW van.

Or maybe they gathered their poll subjects from down at the local baby killing clinic, ...I guess.
