lol. Newsmax spins like crazy on its own new Virginia poll (Obama +3)

Obama leads Romney in Virginia by 3 %. But Newsmax headline is......


"NewsmaxZogby Poll: Romney Surges Ahead Among Seniors in Virginia"

It's not until the third paragraph that Newsmax reports (by the way) that Obama leads among everyone, in this JZAnalytics poll.

I like seniors, but they're not everyone.

1. I don't understand why Newsmax hired Zogby

Zogby polls always lean left.

2. What is up w/ their Pro-Obama polls!

Did their pollster not get the memo to just call grumpy old white guys? Newsmax's polls have been more generous than PPP lately...

5. Zogby was correct in 2000 Bush-Gore

He was the only one.

There was time Rush Limbaugh loved Zogby. Eush also loved Newsmax. This is all strange...

8. The internals in this poll look good too


Obama had a slight edge over Romney among men for the presidency, 48 percent to 46 percent, and led substantially among women, 51 percent to 47 percent. The crucial independent vote favored Obama over Romney 47 percent to 40 percent.

And

The NewsmaxZogby Poll of Virginia likely voters sampled 37 percent Democrats, 36 percent Republicans and 27 percent independents; 71 percent were white, 6 percent Hispanic, and 19 percent African-American; and 18 percent were ages 18-29, 38 percent ages 30-49, 32 percent ages 50-64, and 12 percent age 65 or older.


Didn't oversample Dems, and O winning key demographics.
