If you are a major pollster and put out a poll unfavorable to Obama, look out. I wonder if the Obama administration will cook up another politically motivated lawsuit?
Via Beltway Confidential:
President Obama’s campaign once again attacked the methodology of Gallup just days after the polling group adjusted their methodology in a way that benefited the president.
This time, the criticism came this time from the Obama pollster who mocked the Romney team for debating about the reliability of polls.
After Gallup/USA Today released a poll showing Mitt Romney tied with Obama among likely female voters in swing states, Obama pollster Joel Benenson pointed to “deep flaws in Gallup’s likely voter screen” and dismissed the survey as an “extreme outlier.”
David Axelrod, Obama’s top campaign strategist, made a similar argument earlier this year. “Gallup is saddled with some methodological problems,” Axelrod tweeted in April, when showed Romney with a five-point lead over the president after trailing throughout March.
