Republican Voter Enthusiasm
Is Way Up......
& Yet MSM Media Polls
Are Predicting A
+9 Voting Advantage For
Democrats In This Election
Let's take a quick look at just how absurd these new polls are.
As Jim Geraghty at NRO points out, these new polls from CBS News posit an electorate that is MORE heavily Democratic than 2008. If you've been reading this blog awhile, you know by heart now what the Democratic advantage in the 2008 electorate was: +7 points. They outvoted Republicans by a whopping 7 percent. A historic wave election.
And yet, CBS News and other MSM polling organizations are claiming their polling is showing them an electorate that is now even MORE Democratic than the one in 2008.
Look how many of these MSM pollsters are claiming to find an electorate more heavily Democratic than 2008's +7 when Dem. voter enthusiasm was over 60%
Instead of being +7 Democratic, these new polls claim an electorate that is +9 Democratic. Wow. This is great news for Democrats, right? Why, voter enthusiasm for Democrats must be through the roof right now!
Oh wait a minute. Hold on. Don't start celebrating just yet. Or as Winston Wolf would put it, "Let's not start flicking each other's Bic's just yet."
What did I show everybody in that last post I put up before this one? Oh yeah, here it is:
Here's the glaring problem with CBS's poll - and any other poll - that claims the electorate on Nov. 6 is going to be even more heavily Democratic than the +7 that was seen in 2008:
Democratic voter enthusiasm had to reach 61% and Republican voter enthusiasm had to drop to 35% to produce a +7 Democratic advantage in the 2008 election.
Now the roles are reversed since Nov. 2010. See, in Nov. 2010 there was a mid-term election in which Democrats and Republicans TIED each other at exactly 35% of the vote apiece. That +7 Democratic advantage from 2 years previously was wiped out.
Not only that, Republican voter enthusiasm continued to climb while Democratic enthusiasm waned. According to Gallup Republican voter enthusiasm is 51%, right where it was in 2004 when Bush beat Kerry in an election where Democratic enthusiasm due to Bush Derangement Syndrome was at a whopping 68%.
Right now Democratic voter enthusiasm is at an 8 year low at just 39%. And yet we're expected to believe according to the latest MSM polls that this 8 year low in Democratic voter enthusiasm is about to produce a historic +9 Democratic electorate that will top 2008.
This isn't just absurd. IT'S LAUGHABLY ABSURD.
Democratic advantage in elections is going from +7 in 2008 to +0 in 2010 to a whopping +9 in 2012? You don't say? A NINE POINT SWING in just 2 years? Even as all the real polling organizations like Gallup show Democratic voter enthusiasm dropping through the floor?
The Mainstream Media - ABC News, CBS News, NBC News, CNN, MSNBC, the NYT's, WaPo - they are ALL now propaganda arms for the DNC. They are doing what they have always done - slanting their news coverage and their polls to favor one political party over the other. And all the while they hypocritically pontificate to whoever listens to them that they are NOT doing this, that they are neutral, objective, etc. etc.
One good thing to come out of this election will not just be Obama getting his ass kicked by the voters; it's also going to be the MSM being exposed again for what it is, despite all it's high-brow protestations to the contrary: a partisan propaganda machine.
They are forced into this absurdity because we are winning. And the great thing is instead of depressing Republican voter turnout like they hope to do, all they'll really end up doing is fooling their own base into thinking there's no sense of urgency here, Obama's got it in the bag, so lots of people who don't usually vote in that Democratic base won't feel particularly compelled to do so. They honestly don't think Obama can lose.
Boy, are THEY in for a shock.
