The NYT/CBS poll on the President and Congress

The poll contains some bleak news for the GOP – but you won’t know until you click on the breakdown link for number of respondents how this poll oversampled Democrats heavily. Ankle Biting Pundits explains.

I post this not to suggest that the GOP isn’t in trouble this election year (I think we can figure that out without any poll), but to point out how our beloved MSM isn’t always upfront with you in their main summary articles about just who they polled – which obviously affects the final results.

More: Make sure to read the NYT’s write up of the poll, too – it mentions some things the CBS article left out in its summary. The NYT, surprisingly, summarized the poll better than CBS did, although neither noted in their main pieces that they oversampled Democrats.
