Latest CBS/NYT poll shows Romney ahead; Media hardest hit!/NolteNC/status/225925722772996096

As Twitchy reported last night, the latest CBS/NYT poll has Romney pulling ahead. Heavens to Betsy, how will the lapdog media spin this? The polling is from their Holy Grail “Paper of Record” and all. How can this be?

Washington media types love to quote the NewYorkTimes until the NYT has a poll showing Romney up. Then silence. Que more Romney tax stories.

Distract. Distract like the wind!

Obama team will start another distraction in 3-2-1….Poll from CBS/NYT: Romney 47, Obama 46.

And so they did. NBC’s Mike O’Brien tries to pretend that Team Romney is just sort of making the polling up. No, really.

Team Romney circulating NYT/CBS poll results to media … with slightly — ahem — modified versions of the actual questions in the survey.

Pathetic, sheep-like cover for the free falling Obama campaign.

He’s not alone; someone should really check on the folks at Reuters.

Shhh don't tell Reuters' @samyoungman MT @TwitchyPolitics: CBS/NYT Poll shows Romney pulling ahead … for first time

— Richard Grenell (@RichardGrenell) July 19, 2012

you want evidence of Washington's media bias? new poll shows Romney up and Reuters leads with 3 paragraphs on Mitt's taxes! @samyoungman

— Richard Grenell (@RichardGrenell) July 19, 2012

Yeah, they did.

Boxed in on taxes, Romney says Obama dislikes success

No tweets about the poll numbers, though, of course! What about other sycophantic sheep, including the grieving “Morning Joe” team, at MSNBC?

On the one hand, MSNBC tells me that Romney's campaign is in freefall. Then I see the latest NYT poll. Who is smoking the choom now? #tcot

— Jack (@Mr_Fastbucks) July 19, 2012

Well, MSNBC’s First Read spins it into good news for Obama by focusing on gains in Latino support.

I didn't watch @Morning_Joe today bc of The British Open #Priorities With the new CBS/NYT poll I assume it was like someone died #tcot #p2

Along with a @politico reporter —Drink RT @NolteNC: Wow. Morning Joe crew going over CBS/NYT poll — like a funeral over there. *teehee*

Yep, Politico jumps on the madly spinning lapdog train. Politico frames it as a “respite from Romney’s bad week.” Politico then goes on to dismiss the poll as “meh. whatever.”

Um. The sky in lapdog world must be a different color than it is in non-sycophant world. Romney had a great week and it seems to be continuing. President Obama is the one who is full of fail. From his bizarre and hypocritical focusing on Bain and tax returns (aided by his fellow travelers) to grossly trying to paint Mitt Romney as a felon to his sneering contempt aimed at business owners.

Even The New York Times tries to spin their own poll.

The press seem to have forgotten about that whole “it’s the economy, stupid” deal. Here is the real truth about the polling.

In NYT poll: Number of people who say president 'can do a lot about' the economy has gone from 41% in Sept '11 to 51% now.

People are now putting the blame where it belongs. The buck stops here, Mr. President!

My full breakdown of the new #NYTCBSpoll. Romney leads by 1, but the internals are *brutal* for Obama:

— Guy Benson (@guypbenson) July 19, 2012

Thing about the NYT poll showing R up 1, they oversampled Ds by 7 points. 25%R, 32%D which would be a 2008 turnout model.

— Ari Fleischer (@AriFleischer) July 19, 2012

If NYT poll showing drop in O's favorability & job approval is accurate, the Bain/tax attacks may b hurting O more than R.

— Ari Fleischer (@AriFleischer) July 19, 2012

Just saw internals of CBS/NYT poll. Devastating for Obama. DEVASTATING.

— John Nolte (@NolteNC) July 19, 2012

It’s funny how much better people can read and comprehend when their hands aren’t too full from carrying water, isn’t it?

Look for more spinning soon: An NPR poll also does not bode well for President Obama’s re-election hopes.

NPR poll: Romney, Obama tied at 46 in battleground states….with a D+7 sample. (ie, Romney's winning)

— Guy Benson (@guypbenson) July 19, 2012

Even the usual trick of oversampling Democrats isn’t working. President Obama? Not “doing fine.”
