Well the Pew poll which has been the best result for Romney was not +8 or +9...



I posted a thread about the Pew Poll. I'll be the first to admit it is likely junk, having a +5 R sample.

That is just as worthless as a +8/+9 D sample.

That said, when the +9 D poll shows Romney ahead, that is pretty interesting.

As I scan the board, about 1/3 of the threads are about poll numbers and how they are (finally) reflecting the truth about this election.

It wasn't too long ago threads were actually created with titles such as 'I am sick of polls', or 'the polls are wrong' or 'election day polls are all that matters.'

Polls are good!



Most of them still oversample dems.

The one that has a Rep+4 sample is a bad poll too.

There are a lot of weak minded people on here who refuse to accept what they don't want to believe.

the oversampling falacy has been debunked on here numerous times. That people still go with it show how pathetic they are.

"Debunked" is too strong of a word.
