    and Obama won the debate because the majority of voters in the poll were 18-25 year olds would you make a big deal out of it?  

    It's a big deal that Romney won that poll because those people DO vote.

      What southern state is Obama going to win with the over 50 white vote?

      You can't be that ignorant.

      Yes, the outcome of the CNN poll is disturbing, but the real focus is on how the poll was gamed.

      To answer your hypothetical question if the poll had been rigged pro-Obama, I think this community would still be upset about CNN's lack of poll objectivity and would feel that such nonsense is indicative of why conventional media is unreliable.  

      I say this based on my sense of dkos over the years.  Based on your UID, we've both been around dkos about the same amount of time.   I've regularly seen polls that are favorable to Democrats dismissed because they are unreliable.
