Obviously this one is on to those shifty right-wingers at CBS and the New York Times.
President Obama’s deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter said a poll released Monday that showed most Americans believe Obama’s gay marriage endorsement was done for political reasons can’t be trusted because it’s biased.
“Put the methodology of that poll aside because the methodology was significantly biased. It is a biased sample,” Cutter said Tuesday on MSNBC’s Political Rundown. “They sampled a biased sample so they re-biased the same sample.”
How “biased” was the sample? Why is was 36D/30R/34I. So a poll with a sample of 6% more Democrats just isn’t weighted enough toward Obama. I guess they’d prefer to get back to the usual 2 to 1 ratio of Democrats to Republicans.
According to a CBS News-New York Times poll released on Monday, 67 percent said Obama’s recent endorsement of gay marriage was done for political purposes, while only 23 percent said it was done out of personal conviction.
The poll wasn’t only bad for Obama on the gay marriage issue – it also showed him trailing Mitt Romney by 3 percent nationally, largely due to an erosion of support from female voters.
Funny, but I don’t hear these people sniveling about actually biased polls that reflect positively on the failed president. I wonder why?
