Pew: Obama's Early Vote Average Collapses 26 Points over 2008
As the CorruptMedia hyperventilates over the juicery released by Quinnipiac today showing Obama winning all of America's 12,458 electoral votes and Queen for a Day, the one poll they've intentionally ignored is a bombshell from Gallup showing Romney winning early votes by seven points and Obama's early vote advantage collapsing 22 points over 2008.
The cover-up of this poll was so thorough that when the corrupt Politico did report on Gallup's seven-point early vote advantage for Romney, they did so under a headline that laughably read: "Neither has edge in early voting." That's not bias on Politico's part; it’s out-and-out lying. Well, now we have a second poll the media can ignore that further confirms Gallup's findings and also shows Romney up seven points with early voters -- this time from Pew:
The Pew Research Center survey found that the race is even among all likely voters nationwide (47% Obama, 47% Romney). Unlike the last campaign, the race also is close among voters who say they have already voted.
In the poll, conducted Oct. 24-28, 19% of likely voters say they have already voted; that is unchanged from the same week in the 2008 campaign (Oct. 23-26, 2008). Currently, Romney holds a seven-point edge among early voters (50% to 43%); because of the small sample, this lead is not statistically significant. At this point four years ago, Obama led John McCain by 19 points (53% to 34%) among early voters.
That last sentence is especially important -- not only because it backs up Gallup's early vote findings comparing this election with 2008, but comparisons using the same pollsters are useful regardless of the sample size. You usually have the same methodology at work which proves especially helpful in spotting trends.
Moreover, because Breitbart News is taking the time to look at actual early vote hard counts instead of going the CorruptMedia route and simply reporting what someone wants us to report, we've found that the actual counts within a number of swing states do not contradict Gallup and Pew's early vote polls. This includes North Carolina, Colorado, Florida and Wisconsin.
So go ahead and ignore this latest inconvenient poll, CorruptMedia. We wouldn’t want you to lose favor with David Axelrod or anything. Besides, you’re not the only game in town anymore. We're happy to pick off the real-reporting slack while you pick up Obama's dry cleaning.
