    diarist. Obviously, your analysis is worthless if you are unable to distinguish between r - whack polls and pollsters and mainstream polling.

    Tempted to hr diary. Resisted the temptation thus far.

      I reported on WeAskAmerica polls last week, all of which showed Obama leads, and nobody said one thing about bias polls. All I do is report the polls that come out in a given day. It's up to you which numbers you want to believe and which you don't, but ignoring the ones that don't show the result you want is no different than what the "polls are skewed!" crowd on the right has been doing.

      If you read the whole post, I included all the pro-Obama news as well, such as the Gallup poll and the jobs numbers. I present the data as it is, I don't cherry pick info. I present it all and then try to come up with a conclusion from it.

      The diarist posts even-handedly every day.  We mock the other side for cherry-picking and unskewing, yet we do largely the same thing here.

      Don't like a number?  GOP pollster!  Bad sample!  Fly-by-night!

      Yeah we know all about Raz and We Ask and Gravis.  So what?  I want to see all the numbers, good or bad.

      Funny how useless Gallup was all year, right up to when they showed Obama ahead.  

      That Clarus poll?   Romney up?  They must be crooked!

      Can we face the facts here that Obama sucked out loud the other night and is paying a pretty strong price for it?  

      Can we wait until, you know, the polls include ALL post-debate days before we talk about Romney's non-bounce?
