So some folks think pollsters are rigging results by targeting Democrats not me I see nothing a bounce about -- PR.
Taking a poll in an organic food cooperative on New York's upper west side.
-- to -- Poulter like The Grateful Dead.
Either you follow them or you doubt and like -- -- polls are just noise that makes happenstance.
Some accuse the media -- ability for buying the stuff but not -- the media knows what it's doing but -- it would anyway.
Why is that.
Whether the most despotic entity in America today shadow government setting policy in college shots the mainstream media's decided it didn't ends justify the means.
And is -- decision making power by reporting what it wants to.
Which is why fox continues to -- it's the only place we continue to not be scolded.
Into submission it's the only place you can feel good about your country shut up Bob.
And today people just don't want to hear the -- show all the time it's what the mainstream media is losing so many viewers.
They got a new friend after dumping -- hectoring spouse look at Libya.
You now packs covered for Obama by coming out against American values.
Take a look at slate where one guy faults the United States for its only First Amendment is not them it's us.
I'd say we're turning into Big Brother but that's racist.
A cookbook Bob I didn't get -- did you start it way right there not yet thank -- I -- I'm I'm I'm one must relax since I have no idea what I just did that I -- you're so friendly.
-- -- I'm friendly all the time Kimberly you just ignore me all right let's talk about the polls I wanted to talk about Rush Limbaugh he is talking about how the polls are reflect.
The mindset of the ideology of Democrats not Americans as a whole then let's take it from there.
Purpose of the people right now most of the doing these polls they're trying to make news not reflected.
They're advancing an agenda they're all Democrats there -- all liberals they just have different jobs.
And that that the polls are are are -- -- replacement wraps.
They're watching like -- they see certain things they don't see other things they.
They don't call certain things things go bar.
It's gotta be some truth of that right Bob no I mean I get to be first of all they're not all Liberal Democrats is -- Republican polling firms out there.
Rush ought to stick to what he does very well which is to be a radio talk show host not try to second guess pollsters look.
You could argue about.
How these polls are reflected as some have a slight bias -- side question other.
In the end most of them turn out to be unbelievably.
Accurate and not in politics for a lot of -- -- -- lot of stuff we depend on for polling -- a lot in this country.
And in market in every other way so I think that all these attacks on polls if you're not doing well in the polls as it's on your -- So how can they.
Most of them be turned out to be unbelievably accurate when you have one pollster saying that Obama and Romney are tied to connect frank and another one saying that Obama has a seven point lead -- -- because you have plus or minus 4% of those who -- up and not let us department had -- candidates don't -- -- -- -- offense that is what I.
Let -- everyone else knows did you did this that you can make a poll say what ever you want the could we weren't all that you can word question is maybe get little biased but -- little -- that you polling -- Are that much apart because they purposely want got to do that is just unfair to them.
Whether -- complains about the polls as it is the samples and then that looking at and and who came out in 2008 to vote for President Obama.
Will not be the same in 2012 and so some of -- more conservative Republican pollsters are saying.
They are smoke and something that they think it's going to be the same turnout in 2008 that is not the case but that polling is using that same model and that's their complaint in -- -- smoking something you lost me.
I might as well -- -- is that he's not the actual did you visualize things.
It's pattern smokers have.
KG -- is this all media bias but I think they're significant.
Media bias has been proved over and over again and let me -- and the people out there want to believe that mainstream media go ahead and then you can sign up for four more years of record high unemployment declining household values loss of prestige.
And credibility and influence of the US overseas and in this country it's ridiculous I mean this is still what you want because they've got -- what 41 more days to try and put their guy.
But this hotel trying to meet yeah.
Each issue again that the pew institute which is probably because I'm biased terms trying to somehow reflect and change election I just don't buy that I.
I did -- -- good vote Democrat Republican pollsters in there -- but we just take the one that everyone's talking about today which is CBS New York Times poll.
They went through sun swing states battleground states here's what they want us -- grease balls -- so -- here's what they want us to believe in 2004 the ball was plus four in Florida.
Was plus 44 Republican in -- was plus three Democrat.
Big swing but -- wants to believe it's now plus nine Democrat in Ohio State plus nine Democrat when the last -- all four was plus five Republican.
Let's take them.
Pennsylvania plus nine Democrat again these are.
Of the most dramatic swings of anyone and again Bob.
As long as it's you know broken down correctly in in in male female race at -- you guys are all right -- it.
-- -- -- -- At this sampling of Democrats is it way outweighed the sand in them out of an indication New York Times -- CBS it -- always been the case that they have over sampled Democrats.
The factors is about one point 52% more Democrats registered in this country than are Republicans.
But not to some of those states like Pennsylvania she's -- and we're democratic could not Florida.
But I know they've got to take into account here is from 20042008.
There are millions of people were -- -- the voting.
Process -- we're not -- that in the -- so harshly for pollsters to figure out.
Who all these new voters are coming have voted before.
So I think -- to say they -- to 2008 numbers a lot of purposely go out and don't do that because they know and -- -- get that kind of -- among young people.
I don't want allies talk more about the media.
Hannity at some strong words last -- about how Obama -- the media who are in his pocket.
I would -- something all you liberals out there you people in the media.
I'm telling you and Obama in private.
Is just laughing his ass off at all of you.
Because you are sold dumb.
Sold gullible -- easily manipulated.
And all he has to do is tell you that there's a doughnut in the sky and -- report there's a -- in the sky.
And behind the scenes he knows he is advancing his radical agenda.
And that you're helping them do -- -- is they're coated in the sky.
I'm gonna go look as soon as we leave here he's now Obama made if you look at that.
Back member couple weeks ago we talked about how President Obama had not -- a white house press conference in however long six months in any showed -- to take three questions and then it goes on the view -- doesn't talk to anybody else here.
And that follows a pattern that leads to I think the media.
They basically do these polls every -- maybe they think that they are helping the electorate but instead of giving us any sort of substance of them what does that mean what would they do XYZ -- they'd just get to write a poll and that you had your best line.
-- last two weeks was that we have more polls and Poland yes that is true love that you could have.
I don't educate keep in mind there's there's both the campaigns have very intense support and operations.
They make virtually all their decisions based on -- one of these Obama is doing here like it or not.
Is he does have at least somewhat of a lead in a particular Ohio and he wants to stay away from any questions are going to be tough so my advice -- what event do.
If I could drop the ball and Libya.
Yeah I -- sat quietly I would say don't get into an on one hand here's the here's the mainstream media here's what they're doing they're gonna report all day left that you listen MSNBC all day -- heard about these ballot battleground states in the polls and Obama's.
Won the election -- -- all day.
But a couple of days ago when a -- announcing he was not gonna meet with leaders around the world because the race was too.
It was too deep in the campaign it was too close of a race so in two days they went from.
It's okay you don't have to meet with world leaders Richard involved in it in a battle -- battle for the White House and two days later.
You got locked up.
Yes -- -- what.
The little media -- -- a little at.
-- civilians and about media and people go to work to get their own ideology fulfilled every day think about where you go to blogs.
I have to go more liberal blogs you go to more conservative -- which one do is for -- falling gas station get your engine -- -- -- filled with the safe stuff you don't by the New York Times to take advice from them right.
And I don't by the why should not take advice of the.
We we need.
All of it we get all of it that's not true.
I don't I don't usually usually not that I only -- -- -- -- from us weekly it's very accurate and Myanmar please don't leave them out -- that's credible.
Credible taking the taking Jim Bunning bias but imagine that was vehicle -- Rosetta -- robotics and it is now you know.
That's how many calls all of these states across the board -- -- in Ohio unemployment is worse.
Spending is up across the board the health care bill that means.
Exceedingly unpopular college tuition is up.
And party is all gone up.
And there's -- There's not a credible plan being advanced by the current White House -- it would rather just as you said Bob is ignoring his hope that they can get through the election without ever having to answer a single thing.
But these are high school it's now it's a high school election it's a popularity contests in the right now the media loves their quarterback has made one more quick point about -- -- everybody -- equipment so why they're making it clear that there is like having such a big deal about the poll these polls -- -- Obama with big -- is because it dampens enthusiasm -- Republicans -- -- -- all my gossip.
What's the point of even voting on the -- -- -- Locked up you consider reverse that by by making the lead look commanding that people won't go and vote for Obama recognition Eric -- Could you vote for the winner.
-- warm job on the body can't get started that there's not.
Not as much as the other way conservative and you know pressing you know -- -- how do you expect this and they're gonna polls in Ohio it's a critical state the fact is Obama has a substantial lead in Ohio he just does it take you.
-- -- -- that -- -- poll which they did it's 49 pages -- CBS poll right you dig deeper you look at people they pull people who are.
Too windy and looking deeply into the race not just somewhat.
Involved looking deeply into it in its they're neck and -- the ball pulling a forty important if you look if you take it first -- as the one that you point -- yes -- but not Ohio we got to move.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I never -- -- talk about polls again at I I I honestly I think that I don't like it -- that's why I don't like what I love Poland to elect the polish people.
I like pull hot dogs are like the barber poles elect mr.
for -- I think he's always I.
