FOX Poll Purposely Skewed for Kerry?

Does anyone else think that FOX purposely skewed their poll (final poll shows Kerry wins by 2%) in favor of Kerry, to motivate Republican voters to get their butts to the polls?

I do.

Turn-out will decide the election; if it's close, this is one way to motivate conservative voters (democrat and republican) who may otherwise have stayed home....

I had the same thought when I was watching Fox News Sunday and they announced the poll numbers. Brit Hume kind of farted them off rather then declaring it was a definite shift.

I found that odd.

I don't think so.

They had the Fox polling expert on yesterday and his argument was that the poll showing Kerry up +2 is pretty much the same as the NYT/CBS poll showing Bush up +3.

Even with the tracking polls from today (will they ever stop polling?) Bush is trailing in only three polls.

err...you're all applauding a supposedly objective news agency purposefully skewing "statistics" that they have gathered in order to influence a national election.

Frankly, I find Fox's actions, if your suppositions are true, abhorrent, and your reactions pathetic.

If true, I find it about as abhorrent as, say, that wonderful CBS hit piece on President Bush. Surely you feel the same.

Honestly, haven't watched the news in many weeks. I'm tired of it all, and not sure what you're referring to.

I'll simply state that I'd like our news organizations to be a bit more objective, on both sides.

CBS. 60 Minutes. Fake memos. Dan Rather.

Honestly, did they figure out if the memos were fake or not, or what? When I started ignoring that topic (and I'm ignoring nearly everything these days, I'm so tired of this election) there was still a debate about whether the memos were fake or not.

Anyway, CBS failed to cover themselves in glory on that one, and should be rightfully condemned. I don't know, however, if they were fooled by someone else. If so, then being taken in by someone else is a bit less horrendous than intentionally skewing your own polls to get a desired result.

One would a crime of ignorance, while the other is premeditated. Big fugging difference.
