No cries of conspiracy from the GOP!
A new poll released by the Pew Research Center shows Mitt Romney is ahead President Obama among likely voters 49-45. I am just waiting to see if Jack Welch and Laura Ingraham and other GOP talking heads come out with a conspiracy theory regarding these obviously doctered numbers. My guess is that these pollsters will not be downtrodden and demonized in the way the Bureau of Labor Statistics was in the wake of the releasing the announcement that the unemployment rate was below 8 percent.
The NBC Politics anaylsis stated:
The shift in Pew's poll — which showed an eight point advantage for Obama in mid-September — seems attributable mostly to a heavy Republican sample. Surging party identification can be an indicator of enthusiasm, which certainly spiked among Republicans in the aftermath of last week's debate.
Of course that is not what the sore losers on the other side will say. They will carry these poll numbers on a banner and defend their accuracy. There will be no Jack Welch critique of these numbers.
Hypocrisy or just GOP politics as usual?
