If you’re a Romney supporter, you likely look with sadness and disdain upon the current state of political polling, which has consistently failed for weeks to show your guy with a lead. In fact, the last time Mitt Romney had a lead in the RCP average, it was fall. Of 2011.
What to do, then? Well, you unskew the polls, that’s what!
Enter Unskewed Polls, which takes scientifically conducted polls and, with no particular methodology or reasoning, makes them pro-Romney.
Let’s put this in action!
The last Reuters/Ipsos poll showed Obama with a five-point lead over Mitt Romney, 48-43. When UNSKEWED, Romney leads by TEN POINTS! American points! How did this get unskewed? Let’s go to the tape!
Using the parameters of last week’s Reuters/Ipsos poll as a basis for a good estimate since this latest one didn’t release any internal data, the partisan makeup of the sample is believed to be similar and estimated at 52.5 percent Democrats, 37.6 percent Republicans and 9.2 independents among the 2,078 registered voters and 1,437 likely voters surveyed for the poll. The survey clearly under-sampled independent and Republican voters.
