Some Insight Into Health Care Polling

Almost as if on cue, with Obama's health care overhaul facing several roadblocks and mounting opposition from within his own party, the NY Times and CBS run a poll that, shockingly, is favorable to Obama.

Well, a little insight to the polling numbers reveals that, also shockingly, the NYT/CBS may have gamed the numbers just a bit.

BUT, according to the actual poll data, of the 73% of respondents who said they voted in 2008 only 34% voted for McCain and 66% for Obama.  The actual vote was 46% (corrected) McCain.  So, 29% of McCain voters ignored by the poll must not be Americans, according to the NYTs methodology, and there are about as much an overpolling of  Obama voters

Anything to advance an agenda, I guess.
