GALLUPS "REAL" Release Shows Obama GAINING 2 Head-to-Head, 5 on Approval (MSM MISLEADING AGAIN!)

GALLUPS "REAL" Release Shows

Get this WORD OUT NOW to the misleading headline writers in the MSM!

MSNBC just FEATURED 47-47 tie @ (16+ / 0-)
2pm!!!!! The +5 Obama poll has been out since 1pm!! I just emailed Tamron Hall and ask her what the hell was she and MSNBC doing?????




Gallup Daily Poll Regular Monday Release


10:31 AM PT: RCP now is reporting both polls but only including the "tie" in their average.

10:47 AM PT: Note from Chicago Lawyer comment below: to get to this current average implies the Sunday one-day number was 59 O - 39 R. No wonder they tried to get out something ahead of that.

11:53 AM PT: Now RCP has this caveat for their average: "*Gallup released two tracking poll results on October 8. The more recent results (reflecting post-debate interviews) are included in the RCP National Average." So older numbers are now more recent numbers.

Hey, Gallup, how about clarifying all this by putting out an updated press release showing the 3 day average using the most recent Sunday numbers? What? Hello? Hello? ...

9. I hate to say this

but right after the confusing Gallup news came out Pew came out with a poll that showed the race tied among registered voters but Romney ahead 4 points among likely voters. Ouch. But I believe this is only temporary.

11. National polls are misleading

as long as that ~9 point lead in Ohio stands Rmoney can't win the election.

5. It's coming back to bite them in the ass

Either they corrected the bullshit now or it will be worse for them when the rebound was reflected in the normal polls.

8. Hey! Just cool it

We got this, Obama will win because we the American people have got his back. It's like Martin Bashir said Mitt has no yesterdays, He's not going to believe the lies he tells today, He is the Lier in Chief.

12. But when the margin in Gallup was smaller than the others

we criticized their poll for being an outlier, and basically an over the hill pollster. Now, with them showing the most favorable info, we're waving it around like a flag. Try not use double standards when you analyze these things.

I'm telling you right now, Pew is the one to be worried about. Best pollster over the past 20 years, completely neutral politically.

13. A Silver Lining?

If the polls are being portrayed as artificially close by the msm, maybe it will scare the hell out of Democrats who though we were coasting to victory and make them more motivated to work, donate $, and, above all else, VOTE

15. I don't get it either after looking at the Gallup site

It says:


Presidential Election

Obama
50%
+1
Romney
45%
-1
7-day rolling average

But I think most are reporting the "Real Clear Politics" average of all poles, which includes several very Republican biased poles like Rasmussen.

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/

Here are the 2nd set of Gallup numbers, I don't get this at all.
