11. B) maybe even people lying to the pollsters.

You are on to something. It's an automated poll. Perhaps white Romney supporters are pretending to be black to make it appear Obama is doing poorly among blacks,ergo:


David MarcusBerkeley, Ca

"One of those "strong swing state polls for Romney" is in Colorado: http://www.realclearpolitics.com/docs/2012/Gravis_CO_1006.pdf. But looking at p. 11 of that poll, it shows Romney winning the black vote by 58-40. If the actual black vote were 80-20 in favor of Obama, and everything else in the Gravis poll were exactly the same, the results would change from a 3.49% margin in favor of Romney to a 1.07% margin in favor of Obama.

I've observed the same very counter-intuitive results for black voters in Gravis polls of FL, NC, and MI in the last month. Worthy of some 538 review and analysis? "

Wow. How messed up are Republicans if they are doing that.They are sick, sick, sick...
