rnch saidthe silence from the GOP/TEAbaggers/Conversaposse here is deafening.
Until they find another poll that says what they want the rest of us to hear, anything that's anti-Obama and anti-Democrat. Because their stats are not intended to inform & educate for their own sake, but rather to demoralize Obama supporters, making them give up on the election and either not vote at all, or vote for someone else. Propaganda, pure & simple.
Advertisers use a similar tactic, employing the human tendency to follow the crowd. And therefore many commercials tell you what the rest of the buying public is doing. For instance, that Ford F-150 pickup trucks have outsold all other brands for the last umpteen years. Or that "4 out of 5 mothers" prefer a certain diaper brand.
So the right wingers here look for every opportunity to say that "4 out of 5 voters" disapprove of Obama, whether those are valid numbers or not. They're trying to convince you that you're on the losing side, in the minority, and Americans hate to pick a loser.
(Incidentally, those "4 out of 5" or "9 out of 10" claims are equally bogus, examples of how to misrepresent facts. They IMPLY that 9 out of EVERY 10 doctors, or mothers, or whatever, endorse the product, in other words 90% of all possible respondents. But what Madison Avenue used to do was to survey exactly 10 handpicked doctors and no more. It was therefore 9 out of THESE 10 doctors who recommend the pain reliever. Beware of how "facts" are presented)
