Campaign Trail Report Now Uses UnskewedPolls.com for Ratings
The following is posted on our politics blog at CampaignTrailReport.com.
If you follow news, especially news reported by vintage media, you know full well oversampling of Democrats is running wild in an effort to bend reality in the current national electorate temperature. In fact, I believe vintage media is orchestrating one of the largest voter suppression campaigns our nation has ever seen.
You see, there is much psychology involved in elections. If voters who lean toward a candidate begin feeling all hope is lost and there is no point in going to the polls, often times they will stay home. On the flip side, if supporters of a candidate sense momentum and believe their candidate is surging, they will want to be a part of the successful outcome. This often leads to higher voter turnout.
So, with this in mind, it’s important for Obama’s team members in the vintage media to portray a picture that presents Obama as the clear front-runner. Of course, this is not a new scenario. Skewed polling methods are old school and have been used in many previous election cycles. But not at the level we’re currently seeing. Vintage media has gone too far this time around. They’re over-reaching and in the process they’re showing too many of their cards.
Unlike many of our friends in modern conservative media, we refuse to trumpet skewed polling results without at least acknowledging the fact they are likely skewed. We do often times point at Real Clear Politics and their averages, but even those averages are beginning to be influenced by skewed poll results.
It has long been our policy not to link to any Politico stories. We should probably add others to that ban list, as Politico is just one of many corrupt media outlets around today. Today we’re going to make it a policy to stop considering skewed polling data, including that of the Real Clear Politics averages, in our election ratings system.
The following is a chart of the current UnskewedPolls.com average.
Let’s compare this to the RCP average showing the skewed polls.
That’s a significant difference. Of course, we can’t just make assumptions based on polls and to do so would be media malpractice. The point here is, though, that vintage media DOES make assumptions based on polls. And it does so based on skewed polling data.
We will not join in on the false narratives.
