Last year I conclusively demonstrated how many of the major polls were skewed in favor of the Democrats, and then I unskewed them to show just how skewed they were. It was clear, the major media were using the skewed polls to show President Obama leading by a great degree in the race for president against Mitt Romney than he really was. Remember, he won by about three percent in the real poll on election day, while most of those major polls showed him winning by margins of six or eight percent or more. Clearly those polls were skewed.
The real picture of the situation with the polls gets easily lost in the final result of the election and all of the left's gloating that they got their guy reelected. Let's be brutally honest, no one really expected the Obama campaign to re-create the coalition of voters and groups assembled in the enthusiasm of the campaign's appeal to hope and change in 2008 and get as many voters to the polls in 2012. No one expected the electorate to really be plus five percent in favor of Democrats as the exit polls showed. Even the skewed polls showed comparative enthusiasm levels among voters in both party's bases that would clearly indicate an election-day electorate that would include more Republican voters than Democratic voters.
The key difference maker on election day was the difference between the superior and far more effective turnout operations of the Obama campaign versus the inept, incompetent and disastrously failed turnout operation of the Romney campaign. Those differences likely accounted for several million voters and accounted easily for Obama's win on election day. Clearly the polls were skewed, even if some of them did anticipate that electorate would be plus five percent Democrats on election day. If the electorate is plus five percent Democrats and your poll samples 12 percent more Democrats than Republicans, you are still skewing your poll by seven percent in favor of the Democrats. That is still skewed.
Why did they skew the polls and what did the media want with the skewed polls? I answered this question last fall, their agenda was to influence the outcome of the election and help President Obama get reelected. The mainstream media was entirely in the tank for Obama and they were quite instrumental in helping to influence millions of low-information voters to reelected the president on election day. They skewed the polls and it works.
They are still skewing the polls. A quick look at the polls including in the Real Clear Politics average of polls on President Obama's approval ratings shows they are still skewing the polls. More on that coming soon right here.
