GOP takes aim at ‘skewed’ polls

They argue many mainstream polls skew in Obama’s favor because of sample sizes that base 2012 turnout projections on 2008, when Democrats — and Hispanics, blacks and young voters in particular — turned out in record numbers.

“I don’t think [the polls] reflect the composition of what 2012 is going to look like,” Romney pollster Neil Newhouse said in an interview.

Frustration that polls are skewed in favor of Obama has escalated among some on the right in recent weeks. One website, www.unskewedpolls.com, recently began re-weighting the mainstream polls to closer track the demographic assumptions of conservative polling outlet Rasmussen Reports. The re-weighted polls all show Romney ahead in the race, with leads of between 3 and 11 percentage points.

...

Veteran GOP consultant Roger Stone, who in recent years has worked on libertarian causes, argues the polls are correct because any benefit Romney gets from lower turnout by Democratic voters is likely to be evened out by softer conservative turnout.

“Romney doesn’t have a lock on conservatives,” Stone said. “And he’s losing some, just a couple of points, to [Libertarian candidate] Gary Johnson. That’s a problem.”

There is only one poll that matters and that is the one determined by the actual voters on election day. Except in Florida where the supreme court decides. And Ohio where the electronic machines are programmed secretly by republican partisans. And all the states where many constitutionally eligible voters choices will not get counted due to republican led efforts to disenfranchise hundreds of thousands.

reminds me of that north west baltimore precinct that always turns in 105-120% of eligeable voters. guess which way 98% of the people vote there.

So, if they are skewed it should make the G.O.P happy, because they are only showing him down by a few points....not an amount that couldn't be overcome with a higher than expected turn out. If the polls show Romney down consistently, this should put fear into the Republican base and get everyone out there to vote. Meanwhile, it could have the opposite effect on the Democrats. They might get relaxed and not bother to go get a fake ID card and show up at all (see how I threw that last little thing in there? very clever, huh?)

The fake IDs were a nice twist indeed.
