Old York Times poll is biased, says…

May 15, 2012

Obama campaign!

Obama campaign deputy manager Stephanie Cutter dismissed today’s CBS/New York Times poll showing that 67 percent of people believed Obama made his decision on gay marriage for political reasons. Only 24 percent said that Obama did it “mostly because he thinks it is right.”

Host Chuck Todd asked Cutter about the poll, admitting that the methodology of the poll was different, because it was a callback poll. “Put those caveats aside thats a lot of people saying that he did this for political reasons,” Todd said, noting that it was a 3-1 margin.

“We can’t put the methodology of that poll aside, because the methodology was significantly biased.” Cutter insisted on MSNBC this morning.

When pressed by Todd, Cutter said that she didn’t want to bore the viewers with talk of methodology, but repeated that she believed the poll was flawed.

    Yeah, funny, sounds like your general response to polls that don’t agree with your pre-existing bias.

      Yea. And even the pollster admits a different methodology here.

    Romney is a stronger candidate than McCain, but I still think Obama wins reelection.

    Romney is the Manchurian Liberal.

    Ron Paul is the only way to crush him.

    Obama is going to regret the gay marriage decision.

    Those are issues that a good politican finesses every time–as he did until he got desperate.

    They’ve thrown this Hail Mary and already burnt their Bin Laden cred.

    This election won’t be close.

    Lotsa luck with that premise, Obama Administration.

    >Obama is going to regret the gay marriage decision.

    Especially, if he’d have waited, Mitt Romney would have beaten him to it. Now he sees the political gain in staying in his new pro-marriage position. We know Karl Rove advised Bush to endorse civil unions. Romney would have done it.

    Instead, Romney is supporting a Federal law banning same-sex marriages, overriding any state laws that allow it.

    So much for the Federalist position, eh? We all know that’s just a convenient excuse used by Republicans to selectively oppose policies they are ideologically opposed to for no rational reason.
