OBAMA WINNING IN THE POLLS - THE POLLS HAVE LIED BEFORE
Doesn't even sound logical does it? A President who has and continues to fail miserably. An economy that grows worse with each passing day with unemployment setting records that have surpassed many during the Great Depression. Yet poll after poll keeps showing him leading as if the American voter is completely oblivious to the truth and desires being broke with an economy that is stagnant at best and a foreign policy that has failed in every aspect. I don't believe Americans want our country to fail yet reelecting Obama is a guarantee that it will happen as evidenced by the last nearly four years.
So how does Obama continue to lead in the polls? Easy polling samples are anywhere from plus 5 in favor of Democrats to as much as plus 17 in the most recent NBC poll that has Obama up nationally by 10 points. How do you make a failed President look popular and leading in an election where EVERY indicator that reelects a President is against him? Simple you poll a considerable more of those who support him and less of those who would not support him and presto - changeo you have a failed President leading in the polls.
This isn't the first time a failed President who was adored by the left wing media was continually leading in the polls against a challenger who was not liked by the media. In 1980 Jimmy Carter was overseeing a worse economy than today. Unemployment was around 8% but inflation was in the low 20's, interest rates were above 16%, gas prices were skyrocketing for that time period with gas shortages causing long lines at the pumps just to get enough gas to hopefully get back and forth to work if one was working. To top it all off Iran was holding Americans hostage and Carter not only looked weak to the world but American foreign policy was as low as it ever has been with a Soviet threat that Carter had told the American people we had to get used to.
Ronald Reagan was the challenger that year and the media hated him. The vilified him and called him a buffoon who would take the whole world to war, throw the poor under the bus, give huge tax breaks to the rich while destroying the middle class. Sound familiar? So the media skewed the polls to discourage voters from heading to the polls and voting for Reagan. As the graphic above shows in mid October polling had Carter ahead by 11 points with the media saying the election was over. On election day polls still had Carter leading by 3 points. Reagan won in a landslide with Carter taking ONLY three states and Washington DC. Reagan even won California and New York.
Now I am not trying to imply that Mitt Romney will win California and New York but the fact is polling in 2012 just as it did in 1980 is designed to make a failed Obama look unbeatable and to discourage voters from going to the polls and voting for Romney. Reagan won because voters refused to believe the polls and voted against failure and for the candidate they knew could restore America. On November 6, I believe we will see a repeat of 1980. Maybe not a landslide like Reagan had but a Romney victory because the majority of Americans know a failure when they see it and Americans will NOT tolerate failure or a weak country and a poor economy.
