Being Politically Correct to the Pollsters

In a recent article by Ann Coulter, Eighty-Four Percent Say They'd Never Lie To A Pollster, she looks at the polls leading up to the presidential elections of the past.

It is interesting to note that the polling data has always been skewed in the Democrats favor prior to the actual election.

Reviewing the polls printed in The New York Times and The Washington Post in the last month of every presidential election since 1976, I found the polls were never wrong in a friendly way to Republicans. When the polls were wrong, which was often, they overestimated support for the Democrat, usually by about 6 to 10 points.

Are we looking at a form of the "Bradley affect" for the media?

Obama Says Anything to Get Elected

Who Do You Trust?
Obama's Arrogance Just Became A Nightmare

Terrorists' Nations Love Obama
Terrorists' Leaders Love Obama

First Obama says, "Iran is just a tiny country and no threat."
Then Obama a few months later says, "Iran is a grave threat."

Obama flip flops.

Obama will say anything to try to get elected.

Obama is indeed a friend to the terrorists.

Obama and Health-Care Equity -

Obama and Health-Care Equity -

"For someone running as the tribune of 'change,' Barack Obama showed again in last night's debate that he sure is comfortable with the status quo on health care. He continued his recent assaults on John McCain's health reform even though it is precisely the kind of plan that someone of Mr. Obama's professed convictions ought to support." Read more

McCain's Economic Plan is Better Than Obama's

McCain's economic plan boosts middle class

John McCain's economic plan is designed from the ground up to raise incomes and create jobs for Americans - especially middle-class Americans - and get our economy moving again. It is in sharp contrast to Barack Obama's plan, which does not treat the middle class well and which will reduce jobs rather than create them. Let's compare the plans.

The most worrisome aspect of Obama's economic plan is that he would raise tax rates in a weak economy. I know of no sensible economic theory that says that increasing taxes, or even planning to increase taxes, in a recession is a good idea. Rather, it is flawed economics. Raising taxes could turn a recession into a depression, and would significantly harm middle-class families. No matter how you look at it, McCain's economic plan helps the middle class much more than Obama's.
