    I looked at the ones for that state Some are Dem Some Are Rep
    some are Independent...all are leaning to Obama ....if the last 30 polls lean one way and then 1 poll the day before the election of a small smaple size shows a tie and we are to take that as the reality of the race?

    If I could chime in I have worked in marketing and political research for several years. You can rigg a poll to say whatever you like.

    I don't like the optics of this final day. Romney campaigning and Obama playing b-ball. It can come across as being a little over-confident in Obama's case and a show of strong determination in Romney's case.

    For example I was working for a company about 20 years ago and the abortion question came up. If the question was asked in an objective and unbiased way it would have been worded do you believe in abortion. However since the people doing the poll had a pro abortion agenda the question was do you believe in a womans right to choose a safe abortion free from gov't interference. Clearly the poll was not interested in knowing if you believe in abortion but trying to put out its sinister pro abortion message.

    You can use polls to manipulate public opinion, but you would want honest internal polls to evaluate where you stand.

    Since you guys are already off-topic, I will respond. Clearly the poll was designed to determine how many people believe in CHOICE, not abortion. Any poll where the question is, "Do you believe in abortion." is going to be skewed and used to misrepresent the majority of people who do NOT believe in abortion, but DO believe in choice.

    I think that's sort of his point. The question is where the skew is.

    Or how about this? Do you believe that one should be able to chose weather to have an abortion or not. Not as agenda driven as throwing in the part free and clear of gov't interference. No one wants gov't interference and by adding that spin to it, it's clearly adding it's own agenda. Bottom line was the poll was done by a pro abortion group to push their agenda.
