Is it merely a coincidence that the recent parade of polls ‘purchased’ by Democrats and the mainstream media show President Obama with a lead over challenger Mitt Romney, particularly in battleground states, but more importantly, just as early voting has begun in some states, and just a week before the first presidential debate next Wednesday?
For example, a poll released today from Quinnipiac University/CBS News/New York Times showed President Obama leading in the important ‘swing-state’ of Ohio by 10 points–even as roughly half the voters surveyed listed the economy as their most important issue, according to a FOXNews article today.
That is a peculiar outcome, considering that the facts on the ground have not, and will not, change over the next 42 days running up to the November 6th election.
First, ‘jobs and the economy’ have been, and continue to be the ‘most important factor’ in the upcoming election, according to two-thirds of those polled regularly since last August–including a plurality of Republicans and Independents, and even 30 percent of Democrats.
Second, the factors that affect virtually everyone–even the college students that President Obama has exclusively been courting–also remain unmoved.
The unemployment rate has remained sky-high for over 44 months, while the labor participation has fallen to a 50-year low, and the stratospheric increase in the cost of fuels, food and education have crushed the steadily declining disposable income Americans, as trillion dollar annual deficits have ballooned our twice-downgraded national debt, to a level greater than our nearly $16 trillion Gross Domestic Product (GDP), which has been in a steep nose dive from 3.8 percent to just 1.5 percent since President Obama took office.
And let’s not forget that the Middle East is aflame with hatred for America and Barack Obama.
The only ‘factor’ that the Obama administration and the mainstream media can point to with self-satisfaction, is the rise of the Dow Jones Industrial Average [stock market]–back to its’ pre-recession levels.
Unfortunately for the jobless, that is only because companies have become more economically efficient than ever before, by adding technology and–cutting or ‘offshoring’ jobs.
The ‘collective affect’ of these inconvenient truths is evident in the stunning 8.2 percent decline in our national ‘median household income’ figure, which fell from $55,198 to now just $50,678, since President Obama took office in 2009, according to reporting by FOXNews today.
Language in the most recent U.S. household income report by Sentier Research, revealed a 1.1 percent decline in August alone, but gave this simple, yet enlightening evaluation:
The August decline in real median annual household income is indicative of a struggling economy. Even though we are technically in an economic recovery, real median annual household income is having a difficult time maintaining its present level, much less ‘recovering.’
So, as they say … ‘What’s up with this?’
Two very critical component issues are fueling this peculiar rise in Obama’s forecast.
The pollsters hired by the Democrats and mainstream media are seriously ‘over-sampling’ Democrat votes, and in one case have no “Independent” voter responses, even though they represent as much as 40 percent of the electorate; this is probably due to the fact that Mitt Romney holds a very commanding lead with them.
According to Jay Cost’s extensive research and analysis of historical data dating back to 1972, which appears in his Weekly Standard article today, reveals that Democrat pollster’s severe data manipulation exists, and they are ‘hiding’ it in plain sight under the guise of the voter turnout they ‘expect’ in this election cycle.
And that is clearly the only way that any poll could cast Barack Obama in an attractive light.
Democrat’s and Team Obama then use these ‘contrived,’ but published, polls to ‘manufacture’ their electoral maps, which magically show the president with a commanding election day lead over Mitt Romney.
This brings us to the second important component–the now painfully obvious ‘Liberal-bias’ of the mainstream media–to whom Team Obama peddles this fiction on a daily basis as a story line for them to reprocess for distribution–as ‘news.’
Brent Bozell, president of the Media Research Center, which tracks ‘Liberal media-bias,’ had this to say about the situation now, leading up to the election, in a FOXNews article today.
In the quarter century since the Media Research Center was established to document liberal media bias, there has never been a more brazen and complete attempt by the liberal so-called ‘news’ media to decide the outcome of an election.
In addition to identifying the “shamefully smearing” of Mitt Romney, professionally and personally, over the course of the election, Bozell also listed a litany of other ‘moral trespasses,’ which include the collective characterization of conservative ideas as “extreme,” and downplaying the “horrendous economic conditions” in our country, while focusing more on Romney’s business background [and income tax returns], than in Obama’s [disastrous] record as president.
Bozell also pointed to the mainstream media’s chorus-like coordinated “pouncing” on missteps by conservatives, while “suppressing” gaffes by VP Joe Biden, while they ‘deliberately’ cover up embarrassing government failures and scandals, such as U.S. taxpayers $535 million write off from the bankruptcy of Obama-backed Solyndra Solar, the Fast & Furious scandal being perpetuated by Attorney General Eric Holder, and national security leaks.
Recall that the Obama-dominated government, in concert with Democrat pollsters and the mainstream media attempted to ‘hypnotize’ American voters in the 2010 mid-term elections in this very same way–before the entire Democrat party was ultimately ‘trampled’ by the ‘Tea Party’-led alliance of American voters.
Regardless of Team Obama’s ‘axis of evil’ using this ‘unnatural gas’ to fuel Barack Obama’s totally ‘supernatural’ lead in the polls, in just 42 more days Democrats are going to feel like Armageddon has occurred.
In fact, there is a ‘biblical’ sense of truth about that characterization, as after the majority of the attendees at the Democrat National Convention famously denied God a place in their party platform–three times–American voters will now be effectively eliminating an evil ideology, and replacing it with one that is Right and just, with our Lord God at the center.
