When 'Liberal Media Bias' Is Stripped From Polls, Guess Who's On Top?

Posted By on Tue, Sep 25, 2012 at 9:15 AM

Speaking of potentially skewed polling, I present to you Unskewedpolls.com, where EVERY SINGLE POLL has Mitt Romney beating Barack Obama.

The source to each poll leads back to articles written for The Examiner — which will allow basically anyone with a keyboard to write for them so long as they have something to say. It's not unlike the sports news site/slideshow depository Bleacher Report which is regularly filled with enough hyperbolic shouting and misguided thinking that I'm surprised Bravo hasn't given it a show yet.

More interestingly, the writer for each story debunking the polls (Dean Chambers) is the same guy running Unskewedpolls.com.

So not only is he "unskewing" the polls that show Romney to be losing by working them out in a way that shows Romney to be ahead, but he's reporting the stories and citing his own work as his proof of the bias.

The best part for a guy debunking the myths and biases of polling is that he is using OTHER POLLS from Rasmussen Reports to "unskew" the polls he doesn't approve of — and Rasmussen's polls are the only polls that he hasn't "unskewed."

So, in the end, he's doesn't appear to be much different than a snake eating his own tail, while ignoring a mouse that he could actually feast on if he wanted.

Talk about skewed logic.
