    That was great -- but given the polling sample, it was somewhat skewed for Romney... [​IMG]

    Polls have always been skewed in favor of the Dems for as long as I can remember, and I'd wonder about the IQ (or the communist party affiliation) of anyone who professes to take them seriously. And that includes "Tyrone". You have to expect the MSM will pull out all the stops to publish disinformation this close to the election. I can't wait to read how bad Romney looked during the debate, no matter how well he does.
    :rofl:

    I just heard that the Snoop Dog poll has the Bama ahead by 90%! Also the Cripps and the Bloods poll (L.A. Gangs) have the Bama ahead by 100% Also the illegal immagrant poll out here in California have him ahead by 95%. The Gay poll has him already re-elected because in their words, "He is so cute"! And all the welfare recpients who received free "Obama Phones" have said he is the second coming of Christ! Four more years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I thought this was another Spyder-cited poll.

    Hell, it probably is.

    Can't be -- there's no plus/minus margin of error... [​IMG]

    More polls:

    Latest swing state numbers show Obama up 112% in likely voters in union-staffed nursing homes.


    California, New York, and Illinois added to the rolling swing state average. Obama shows a solid lead in all swing states.

    86% of smugly ironic bumper sticker enthusiasts support Obama in 2012.

    Elizabeth Warren approval ratings in MA: Mahican tribe 3%, Massachuset tribe 2%, Nauset tribe 2%, Nipmuc 1%, Pennacook 0.5%

    Poll: Democrats say the Obama tape won't change their minds about voting for him. The Republican we asked answered DK because she didn't see the tape.

    Lesbian yoga instructors who volunteer at animal shelters are breaking hard for Obama. Romney's election chances drop immensely.

    One factor in the poll is that when people are looking at "Tyrone" they'd probably think of the "If I have a son, he would look like..." statement

    and chose to say something to move on peacefully.

    I just report what's on the news.

    With every poll they always have their margin of error listed and most people overlook that margin of error.

    With the Fox Noise poll everyone except the right-wingnuts realize that their margin of error would purposely favor Romney.

    Since Fox Noise's poll showed Obama at 46% and Romney at 44% with a margin of error of +/- 4.5% ( most polls have a 3% error margin ) that puts Obama at 51% and Romney at 40%.

    Even the right-wing cannot come up with a poll that shows Romney being ahead of Obama. Or even tied.
     
  11. ^^^^Somebody still doesn't understand the difference between margin of error and bias. If they are both within the margin of error, then they are statistically tied, by definition. It's math, duh.

    Just the other day you were touting this:


    And then you studiously ignored any questions for follow up. So no, the phrase that you're "reporting what's on the news" won't wash.

    I'm laughing that you're continuing to display your ignorance as to what a MoE is, or for that matter trying to sound authoritative on what "most" polls show.

    ChuteTheMall,

    That's the point I was making about Fox Noise's MoE/bias factor.

    Once you calculate in Fox Noise's MoBE ( Margin of Bias Error ) it shows ......

    Obama 51%

    Romney 40%


    Even if you do the same thing with the Wast Post/CBS poll, Obama is still WAY ahead in the polls.

    I won't say you're an idiot, but if I were to build an idiot from scratch I'd use you as a blueprint.
