CBS spins 7 point Romney poll lead into win for Obama

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

What does the media do when the polls start tilting in Romney’s favor? The discredit polls and do their best liberal gymnastics to contort the polls into Obama’s favor. Just weeks ago the media used the polls in an attempt to dismiss Romney, but now they are dismissing the polls and claiming Obama is leading from behind.

“I was watching CBS this morning and CBS actually said to their expert on polls, ‘We have a poll here from Gallup that shows President Obama is behind by a seven‑point ‑‑ shows a seven‑point lead for Mitt Romney. Would this poll indicate that the president is beginning to fall behind in the race?'” Glenn said.

And, of course, the CBS expert said not so much. CBS reports:

“If you’re Mitt Romney, you love that number, it means something is moving in your direction,” Dickerson told Norah O’Donnell. He then noted, however, that there is a lot of debate over the survey, specifically over “whether it lags behind where the debate really is.”“After the first debate, which everybody scored as a clear, resounding victory for Mitt Romney, the Gallup daily track still had it up for the president, so – there are also other criticisms of the way it looks at likely voters, and it’s a bit of an outlier from some other polls,” he said. “So if you’re Mitt Romney you like it, but we should, with all polls, be really really skeptical.”

“It was one of the most incredible spins I’ve ever seen.  The media is so discrediting themselves and they’re going to come up with a giant surprise by the end of this race.  I’m telling you on election day, on Tuesday it is going to be a shock to members of the media.  I don’t think to the president.  I think the president already knows.  But not, not to the media.  The media doesn’t know.  They don’t get it,” Glenn said.

      It will be great entertainment indeed to watch their heads explode.

    The Communist Broadcast System – CBS – is desperate to ensure the reeleciton of their god-king Obama. They are seeking to turn a clear loss into a win, and they are clearly experiencing denial as their world is crashing down around their heads.

    I want to see a video of Chris Matthews breaking into tears as his god-king is deposed in the November elections.

    Judgement is upon the House of Obama, let the truth come out and show the world all that has been done.

          God with a capital G, doesn’t care too greatly for liars and those that do not believe in The Son. I would go as far as to say He is ashamed and disappointed.

  • Sam Fisher

    The media are a bunch of idiots haven’t they been saying the opposite when Obama was leading? Way to make yourselves look more foolish I didn’t think it was possible but you guys keep surprising your stupidity.

    Actually, I didn’t think this one was that bad. Yeah, they brought up poll numbers in swing states and cherry-picked a bit, but they talked about what some of the key issues were for the Romney campaign, and unlike MSNBC didn’t just discount them out of hand.

    So, maybe a little unbalanced, but certainly not a breathless, Chris-Matthews-tingle-up-the-leg kind of performance.

    It will indeed be interesting to see how the MSM adapts to saying “President Romney.” :)  MSNBC’s Chris, Rachel, Ed, and Al will probably flee the country, and we’ll all shout “Hallelujah!”

    Oh the media know, they are just trying to sway their listeners.  To keep the public believing so they will vote for Obama.  People stick with a winners and disengage from losers.

    BLAH BLAH BLAH, that might be sorta not the right thing to look at because it is not real and those people don’t really know how they think they thought what they were thinking as to not become the truth of course, insofar as the fact is really the opposite of the real truth because the poles are telling the wrong story and don’t even know that Obama is winning!! Do you agree???? Yes you do!!!! I thought so……………. sure is clear to me………

    I find it funny that anyone puts any stock in these polls. I find it even funnier that the LSM is now trying to spin the results of the very same polls they were touting a month ago.

    Just so everyone understands, these polls mean nothing. I can make a poll say anything I want, simply by who I ask. The only polls that matter are the ones people vote in AND people get elected in. All the rest are just bullshit.

    Fortuntely the media cannot alter the voting booths, but if they could…..?????

    Desperation among the lib/dem/progs increases as Romney rises to the top.  My biggest concern for now is the Electoral College and how they cast those votes, which could cause America much heartache if they go against the popular vote.

    The left wing news media has become a total joke.

  • Frank

    Ironic how the same party that has been critical of education has become so oblivious to their own blind support that they can’t even get a clue in realizing how badly their party is going to lose this November.
