Here we go again: The just released Pew poll which shows Obama with a 10 point lead oversampled Democrats by 19 points!

This is disgraceful work, and should discredit Pew as a pollster. There is no chance in hell that Democrats are going to outvote Republicans by 19 points come November. They didn’t even do that in 2008, when Obama won handily. For Pew to release a poll with a sampling that badly skewed smacks of incompetence, fraud, political manipulation, or a willingness to deny reality.

    #Barack Obama now has “slave” blood, discovered on his mothers side.

    #Harry Reid makes what seems like libelous claims about Romneys taxes and challenges Romney to prove him wrong.

    (lucky he is doing it on the Senate floor where I believe he is immune from such accusations, someone please check me on that)

    #Obama donates $5k to himself, walks his fans step by step through how to do it on the net. (looks like they are forgetting to make donations)

    # I just read that Pew Research says that Obama has a double digit lead over Romney.

    # And now its revealed the media sque’s its numbers to Obamas favor.

    I say its all weak, juvenile and desperate, an attempt at fullfilling wishful thinking.

    Obama isn’t having any fundraising problems, he just wants people to think that he does so he looks like an underdog against rich Romney. In total, Obama has out raised and outspent Romney to date. The same is true for Obama supporting super pacs.

    I get your point about what may well be a disinformation campagne but based on the information I gather through the different means

    available the dems, excuse me the socialists, look very juvenile, patronistic and desperate.

    If you could substantiate your conclusion with numbers I might change my mind to a degree.

    If you thought the Quinnipiac poll (Dems +10) was ridiculous, this PEW poll is just laughable ! ! In order for their numbers to reflect any semblence of reality, Dems would have to turn out in much LARGER numbers than they did in ’08, while assuming GOP enthusiasm is way DOWN. Come on, folks – this is nothing more than an attempt to prop up what they know is a sinking campaign.

    BTW – isn’t it ILLEGAL to conduct campaigning & fundraising activites from your Gov’t OFFICE??
