    This is from Pew, who had Obama up by 8 in mid September.

    Not biased, just skewed too heavily towards democrats. Many of the polls that had Obama up by large margins predicted Democratic turnout on the scale of '08. Nobody can seriously suggest that this will happen.

    Besides, these polls are a dying animal. I read recently that the major polling orgs have something like a 90% rejection rate (meaning that only 1 of every 10 people called will participate). Add to that the lack of land lines nowadays, and it is just becoming a less reliable method to gauge these things. I wouldn't put any more credence in this poll than I would the ones that had Obama up by a large margin.

    Amazing what can happen when Barry has to go without his teleprompter and media filters.

    The three on the left are clearly worried about their future deportation.

    He has a giant Easter Island head. I saw him and Ryan sitting together, and Ryan has a BB head. They make a stunning pair.

    All the polls are horseshit. They poll demos that will favor their
    opinions and quote the results like it's fact.

    The truth will be heard at the polls.

    Probably because the polls are still skewed and it's still not enough to show Barry in the lead.

    Polls are not skewed. They use methodologies, dummy. They have always gotten it pretty fucking close for a reason.

    The only thing that makes this one interesting to me is that Pew consistently skews left. For them to go from an 8 point Barry lead to a four point Romney lead is of note. At the very least it shows exactly how poorly the Teleprompter in Chief did in the debate.
