60% For Obama? Lies, Damn Lies & Statistics.

Lies And Statistics

In a desperate attempt to fool the American people into thinking that Obama got a massive bounce from the Osama bin Laden killing, the AP actually sampled TWICE as many Democrats as everybody else and lo and behold, like magic, Obama’s approval ratings are at astronomical 60%.

It’s pretty easy to get Obama to 60% when Republicans are undersampled by almost half.

Plus, they did a pretty good job of hiding the raw data. It’s pretty sad that Obamalovers have to resort to such trickery to keep their guy on top. But then again, lying comes as first nature to these people. No wonder the old media is dying – maybe it deserves to go with shoddy reporting like this.
