Which poll is clearly stacked?
Rasmussen Reports has support dropping from 43% to 41%.
56% oppose ObamaCare.

- N.Y. Times Poll shows - Wide Support for Government Health Care.
They must have stacked the NY Times poll with 90% Democrats/5% Republicans/
5% Independents.

Rasmussen Reports - 56% Oppose/41% Approve

N.Y. Times Poll

The New York Times made news–or rather manufactured it–by publishing a public opinion poll that seems to show Americans overwhelmingly supporting a single payer or similar health care funding system. The only problem is, those questioned voted by nearly 2 to 1 for Obama over McCain, which the paper’s story on the poll somehow failed to mention.

Hope this answers your question a bit.

Well, they got the numbers that they wanted.
The libs are throwing around the NY Times poll like it's from the Bible.
Fox News uses the Rasmussen Poll numbers.
The libs better hurry up and ram through something soon.
The longer they wait the worse it gets.

There is an old saying in statistics.

"Torture numbers long enough, and they'll give you any answer you want."

They don't even pretend to be unbiased anymore.

Kinda scary.

I thought it was liars figure and figures lie


The trouble with polls is how the questions are worded. For example: 95% of white males polled beat their wives.

Questionaire
Please answer all questions completely:
Have you beaten your wife
A. ten times a day
B. With a baseball bat
C. with your fists


Without seeing the actually study I figure a poll is quoted to mislead.

True. There is a science to the question. That's why polls are so misleading.

A famous poll, gave the Cicago Trib the headline "Dewey Defeats Truman".

They did poll enough people, but it was done in the afternoon. When more women were home than men. Since Dewey was better looking than Truman, the women voted for him.

Which would be an excellent segue to another thread, "Why did we give women the right to vote?"

I'm surprised the NY Times thinks the bogus poll might work.
It just hurts their credibility even more.
Gallup and Rasmussen Reports are the best.

OMG! Robert Reich was just on CNBC spewing that
bogus poll!
"Look at the recent NY Times Poll. 65% of the American
people want the government Public Option."
"You guys are on a different planet."
Um....no Robert you are on "Planet Big Lib" if you believe
that STACKED poll.

Lawrence Kudlow:"Wait. There is another poll Robert.
Rasmussen says only 41% approve."
Robert didn't like that.

So much for the liberal talking points.

These are the same people who estimated the turnout in Washington on September 12th.

Using their perspective I estimate the actual number of Americans supporting health care reform to be 800% with only .000000001% opposed.

The President's approval according to the walkswithfish poll is now above 1,000%

The margin of error is ACORN, please send all inquiries to them.

I think the Zogby poll is much more accurate than those two!
