Namely, that USA Today and CNN, by keeping the poll open beyond the normal Saturday - Sunday time frame, would attempt to cook the books - as I posted here:
I wrote yesterday: The story notes that the poll's been extended through tonight - maybe to further massage the results? You have to admit that this is really embarrassing for Kedwards, or CNN...or someone!
And damned, Rosalie, if it didn't happen exactly as I suspected - but of course, there's no such thing as left-wing establishment media bias, right?
In any event, Rosalie, using the link you provided, we can clearly see that there was no bounce whatsoever. In the poll of registered voters, in fact, Kedwards lost 1% from the 19 - 21 July number, and President Bush gained 3%.
The old saw about "lies, damned lies and statistics" has proven itself again to be very true when applied to the establishment press...
