Stu explains more on bias in the polls with his latest Stu Blog HERE
The mainstream media wants you to think the the Romney campaign is collapsing and the polls show little hope for a Romney/Ryan victory in November. Are they right? Glenn explained on radio this morning.
"I want to talk a little bit about the poll numbers here first for Mitt Romney. Do not believe the poll numbers. I'm telling you everything, everything else, everything else makes sense to me. You know, they say in the press that, you know, people aren't that excited about Romney and they're very excited about Barack Obama," Glenn said.
Glenn explained that because Romney doesn't have the most electric personality, it's hard to claim your "excited" to vote for him. But Glenn said that they need to be asking the question: "Are you voting for personality or are you voting for principles?"
"I'm not voting against Barack Obama. I mean, don't get me wrong. I am. Not to vote is to vote. But I'm not just doing that; I'm voting for principles. And I'm certainly not voting for Mitt Romney. I'm voting for the Constitution. I'm voting for a change in direction. If Mitt Romney is the guy who can help us get there, great. But I got news for ya. In four years from now if he sucks, we throw his ass out, too."
"I think that the only way to solve this is to reverse the engines and to start moving back in the other direction. Otherwise you have revolution. I don't want revolution. Mitt Romney is the best guy we have out there; I'm for Mitt Romney right now. But I'm for the Constitution."
"The press, the press doesn't understand that the Republicans have changed. And I'm not saying the GOP. I'm saying that a vast majority of people who have voted Republican have changed. We have become what the press says they are. We have become people who say, 'I don't care about the parties. I don't care about the politics of it. I just want the right answer. I want the true answer. I don't want anything about race. I don't want all this bashing back and forth. I don't want it. I want an answer, I want it clear, I want you to state it and I want you to do it. And if you don't do it, I'm going to throw you out. And I am not beholden to anybody or any party.' That's who we've become. And they don't recognize it."
"So how can you believe anything that they are polling because they're polling on old style. They're polling, they're looking for things that they can compare to 2008 or 2004. We're not those people anymore."
Glenn also said that the polls are being built around the idea that people will be as excited about voting for Obama as they were in 2008.
Stu explained, " CNN, New York Times, Quinnipiac poll came out and it was largely touted by the media without any qualifiers at all and they said ‑‑the two states that were highlighted, Florida and Pennsylvania: Florida in 2008 had a democratic voting advantage of 3%. So 3% more Democrats came out than Republicans. In this poll that they released yesterday, in Florida they're saying it went from 3 to 7. So they're saying more than double the advantage for Democrats than in the 2008 election in Florida."
"It's obviously an unreliable sample. There's no way that people are more intense voting for Obama this time than they were in 2008," Stu continued. He added, "Remember 2008, okay, big Democratic wave, you've got Obama and everything else, he carries it, all these huge voting numbers. In 2010 that completely reversed."
"Stop listening to them," Glenn said. "I think all they're trying to do is depress you."
