Reuters, one of the most frequently quoted pollsters in the lib-prog media, has finally released its selection criteria. Of the people who it is polling, 52.5% are Democrats, 37.6% are Republicans, and 9.2% are Independents. And they are consistently reporting Presbo as either tied or ahead by 5%..
Which is not surprising for THEIR poll if every Republican and every Independent that they polled was for Romney and every Democrat that they polled was for Presbo. Their mix of pollees would still show Presbo ahead by 5%. But in the real world, there are NOT 15% more Democrat voters than Republicans, even with half of the country not paying income tax. Rasmussen shows about 35% Republicans and 35% Democrats and 30% unaffiliated (aka Independent). And the real world Independents are “strongly” favoring Romney.
Which suggests that the actual real world poll results are not being reported by the lib-prog media, for whatever their reasons are.
Which also suggests that the retirement house in Hawaii that Presbo just bought with the stipulation that it be available January ’13 is based on HIS getting the true scoop and acting accordingly. He apparently doesn’t think he has a prayer of getting re-elected.
It also suggests that his monkeying around with Netanyahu is based on either his no longer having to play nice to the leader of a country that he really doesn’t support, or else that he is trying to goad Netanyahu into brash action to have Israel unilaterally attack Iran between now and November so that he, Presbo, will have an excuse to use the US military to get the Iranian government out of the way of the Muslim Brotherhood taking over.
People may not have his numbers, but they are starting to get his number.
