freedomisntfree saidPublic Policy Poll Targets Union Househoulds in PollTsk tsk... biased polling! They should be ashamed!
Yesterday a poll was released by Democrat affiliated Public Policy Polling of Raleigh, North Carolina that claimed Governor Scott Walker would lose in a re-vote of last November’s election.
Public Policy Polling was founded by, and still led by, Democratic pollster Dean Debnam, whose political contributions show a considerable Democratic bias. Public Policy Polling doesn’t even attempt to hide its Democrat cheerleading. In a Politico article depicting their war against Republican Senate candidate Richard Burr, Public Policy Polling Director Tom Jensen said “we’re absolutely rooting in the race. We don’t want Richard Burr to get reelected. We wanted Obama to win last fall.”
Beyond the liberal bias of Public Policy Polling, this specific poll over represents union households. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, union membership in Wisconsin is approximately 355,000. With a workforce of around 2.5 million, union membership constitutes about 14.2% of the workforce. The poll that Public Policy Polling conducted shows that 32% of the households polled had a union member. This is a gross overrepresentation of union households.
Given an overrepresentation of union households and a history of Public Policy Polling’s Democratic bias, this poll ought to be viewed with significant skepticism.
Oh shucky darn... like that doesnt happen in the other camp! LMAO
For a composite of all the known polls.
A composite that includes the Rasmussen polls which have been proven to be biased with a pro-right-wing tilt.
The inclusion of the Rasmussen polls in the RCP average throws the RCP average off in favor of the Repub side - so RCP averages are not reliable or trustworthy.
I posted the PPP poll in the link because it's a brand new poll.
If you don't care for the PPP poll - Gallup also has President Obama leading the Repub field by 6 points.
So, now you're going to say that Gallup is biased to the left too, right?
