  •  And the CBS poll? (0+ / 0-)

    Sorry, I don't see how a weird sample would've turned an Obama victory or tie into this bad a result. And CNN's wasn't the only snap poll.

    So sure, let's give Obama 10 of Romney's points from the CNN snap poll. He still lost, and not narrowly.

      If it's 59 to 35, people have ample company in thinking that he won.  If it's 69 to 25, the minority is so outnumbered as to be likely to change its mind.

      Believe me, if I could put out a supposedly nationally representative poll showing that my opponent had lost by an almost 3:1 margin, I'd do it every time -- regardless of its merits.  That poll was Romney's strongest ad.
