MEDIA SMOTHERS NEWS OF ROMNEY'S COMMANDING LEAD WITH INDEPENDENTS

 11 Sep 2012 348 POST A COMMENT

Even as the most recent polls show Obama's convention bounce fading (as expected), that doesn’t mean our dishonest and corrupt media is going to crawl off the bandwagon they crafted over the weekend proclaiming Obama's win as inevitable.

The Narrative is the Narrative is the Narrative, and this phony story of Inevitability was the only cannon shot our corrupt and dishonest media could fire that would smother the news of Obama's lousy convention speech, his delegates booing God and Israel, and the worst jobs report in two years.

So a few polls come out documenting a run-of the-mill bounce and BOOM, CRASH, BANG, SMACK -- the election's over!

Except, you know, it's not.

Damn the American voter for still wanting to vote, right John Harris and Jim VandeHei?

Even as the media overplays polls showing a convention bounce and rig their own polls to keep that narrative alive another couple of days, what we're seeing in these very same polls proclaiming Romney dead is that he's leading among the all-important independentsby double digits.

You would think that with all the focus the corrupt media places on the vaunted independent voter that the news of Romney winning them by double digits would be pretty big news. But if you think that, you're obviously under the mistaken impression our media is anything other than a shilling machine determined to win Obama a second term.

But here you go…. Straight from BNN…. NEWS THE CORRUPT MEDIA CAN'T USE:

Today's Washington Post/ABC News poll has Romney leading by 11 points among independents.

Last night's CNN poll shows Romney up 14 among independents.

You might ask yourself how in the world Romney could be losing (according to the corrupt media and their intentionally skewed polls) when he has a commanding lead with independent voters.

Well, that's simple, the polls are weighted with over-generous samples of Democrats. In fact, the CNN poll linked above shows Obama ahead by six points overall but CNN's absurd sample only includes 5% of the very same  independent voters Romney's enjoying a commanding lead with. The Washington Post poll, however, samples 36% indies and that poll only shows a 1% lead for Obama.

But both polls assume 2012 is going to be 2008 again where Democrats enjoyed a D+7 advantage in turnout. WaPo sample is D +6 and CNN is D +5.

If anyone thinks that in this environment, Obama's going to turn out that kind of advantage, you must be one of Obama's media-shills.

But this is why the media is pushing this Inevitability Narrative -- because they know this is a turnout election and that, by proclaiming the race over, they hope to suppress Republican turnout.

See how this works?

The media lies and lies and shills and lies and lies and shills.

Of course they do!  Proclaim the polls that make you look good. Hide the ones that do not. And especially hide polls showing your opponent's double digit leads with Independents - 30% of the electorate. Don't want the American people to know the latest. Yowza. Those leads look mighty fine to me.

It all comes down to the electoral college, ladies.

These polls are meaningless.

I have no doubt that the media twists things any way they want to.

I agree with you that this is not one election based on popular votes, but 50 separate elections based on electoral votes.

The swing/battleground states are the real polls -- and except for a couple, these electoral races are remarkably close. And I've read that some states considered Obama's have flipped to Romney, and still other "non-swing" states, have become close enough to become new swing states. The Romney campaign has confirmed these reports -- with nary a peep from the Obama team. So there is a much bigger, closer fight going on than the average person is aware of.

Most of the time, yes - national polls are helpful only in spotting trends, but don't equate to the electoral vote distribution. But at the same time, a double digit lead among independent voters -- 30+% of the electorate, and the true swing voters -- is a jawdropping trend, and therefore significant.

It always comes down to Florida and Ohio, everything else is insignificant.

That's why all of those independent voters need to vote for whomever they want. Jill Stein?Gary Johnson? Go for it! The more individual votes third parties receive, the more attention they receive and maybe, someday, we'll dismantle this two-party disaster.

Of course, that's going to have to start with the dissolution of the electoral college.
