Yet More Biased Polls
Our buddy Bulldog Pundit chomps down
on the latest CBS-NY Times Poll:1. Party Leanings - The poll is SLANTED HEAVILY towards Democrats. Even though the voters in the 2004 election were split evenly at 37% between Republicans and Democrats, this poll is 37%(D), 34%(I) and 25%(R). What the hell did the NYT and CBS expect when THE GAP BETWEEN REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS IS 12%?
Good debunking. I note that Rasmussen Polling
has Bush at 41% job approval; virtually unchanged from his numbers for the last couple months.
Blue Crab Boulevard has more
, including the fact that although the poll started out skewed Democratic, the pollsters weighted the Democrats' responses more, and reduced the weighting of the Republican responses.
