The big news in this poll is not that President Obama is supposedly ahead by 4 points in Virginia, but that the Washington Post has once again foisted a Democrat-skewed sample upon its readership.

Check out the party breakdown:

  • Democrat 31%
  • Republican 23%
  • Independent 36%
  • Other/Don’t Know 9%

So this is a D+8 sample. By comparison, the 2008 Virginia exit poll sample, taken when Obama-mania was at its peak, was 39D/33R/27I, or merely D+6.

In other words, the Washington Post poll presumes a political environment in Virginia that is more hospitable to Democrats today than it was in 2008.

Savvy poll-watchers aren’t falling for it:

WaPo pulled the same stunt last month. And yet we’re told it is conservatives who are embracing an “alternate polling reality.”

We’ll see on November 6th.

    Seems the WaPoo is conveniently forgetting about 2010.

      AND the ChikFilA phenom, they never learn do they?

    Where did WaPo do it’s polling?? Apparently there are a lot of disturbed graves in Virginia. Of course zombies don’t have to show IDs either.

    I would expect no less of Pravda on the Potomac.
    Superb bird cage liner, fish and garbage wrap since 1965!
    Relevance?…. Not so much.

    It’s ok if they want to make themselves and Obama feel better, come Nov 6th, the silent majority will show them just how bad their kind of good actually feels.
