View Full Version : Romney performed so poorly ...
... that he gained two points in the GALLUP poll.

So Gallup polled and reached some thousands of people starting as of 10:30 pm or so last night and also published their results this morning?
That's a fascinating claim, and surely false.
Oh, it was a JOKE? Funny...
ROMNEY 49 OBAMA 45
ROMNEY 51 OBAMA 45
Explain how that isn't a two point gain for R-money from yesterday to today?

Because they report TODAY what they polled YESTERDAY (or before).
Yesterday, or before, BEFORE THE DEBATE TOOK PLACE.
So unless you're claiming it was based on those polled's PREDICTIONS of how they thought the debate would go...
and even you are not that far gone...
you have made a joke.
So what's the lame excuse that he went from down four to down six the ext y and down seven ay after next?

There's enough vagary in the sampling, even without intentionally doing so, that the true numbers are masked by the noise.
It's amusing that you hang on every day's polling, and of individual polls, and probably buy that the likely voter screen is far more accurate than the registered voter screen, so ignore such (RV) screened polling.
Which ain't necessarily so, as you might find if you read up on it a bit. Plenty of 'likely voters' don't get to the polls, and plenty of 'unlikely' (but registered) voters do get to the polls.
This is a remarkably crap-laden area of social science, and people give it far more credibility than it deserves.
Yes ... the opinion of those who vote are, IMHO, more important than those who do not.
OTOH, bing that you lovingly embrace thugocracy and voter fraud, your faith in unlikely voters saving the day is duly noted.
Want to see if you can get both feet in your mouth?
