Polls apart

There's a new poll out today that shows Senator Barack Hussein Obama (D-IL) leading everyone in the race for the White House. Not just over New York Senator Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton (D-IL,AR,DC,NY). But over Republican front-runner, Arizona Senator John Sidney McCain, III.

The odd thing is, that poll seems to buck the trend of other polls.

Over at RealClearPolitics.com, it looks like polls have been trending towards Senator McCain recently. Including McCain leading in the most recent polls.

Until, all of a sudden, a New York Times poll and an AP poll show Obama with a double-digit lead.

What's up with that?

I mean, it's not like CBS or the New York Times would make up news, would they?

CBS would never, say, publish fake records of a politician's ... say, President Bush's ... military service, would they?

And the New York Times would never make up a story about an "inappropriate relationship" between a politician ... say, Senator McCain ... and a lobbyist, would they?

And the AP would never use unreliable news sources in reporting, would they?

I don't put much stock in polls. They change.

Unlike the left-wing media bias. It's been the only consistent thing in this story.


  1. Like you, I don't pay attention to polls. All I know is the way I want things to swing and if I had the right to vote (not a US citizen) I would just vote with what my gut says, irregardless of the polls. People give polls and pollsters too much power. More attention than they give to what the candidates stand for. There's something terribly wrong with this practice.
