New Washington Post Poll Stacked With Democrats

So everyone is buzzing about the new WaPo poll out this morning. Well, at least the chattering class is and their response, predictably is, “Oh, see. That miserable debate performance by our man Obama didn’t destroy his campaign after all.” The poll, by the way, shows Obama surging to a 3 point lead over Romney.

Except there is one small problem with the poll. As Mike Flynn, editor of Big Government, points out, that in spite of the media’s narrative (its own narrative!!) that the momentum is with Romney after the first debate, the WaPo Poll has a Democrat sampling of +9. That’s right. The WaPo think the Democrats are so enthused and motivated right now there is going to be a record turnout among them unlike anything we’ve ever seen before.

This doesn’t make sense. Everywhere you turn, Romney voters are excited, motivated and working. Obama’s folks are not. If he even gets close to his 2008 numbers, I will be shocked.

But the media is now working overtime to keep this thing close. And unless folks are paying attention to the smoke and mirrors game, it would appear that it is.
