The Obama Campaign Really Hates This Poll

Aides attack CBS/NYT poll on Twitter and TV. Obama campaign officials are attacking the latest poll from CBS News and The New York Times which shows Romney and Obama in a statistical tie. They are arguing publicly that the poll’s methodology is flawed, and they aren’t being shy about it either.

1. Obama Deputy Campaign Manager Stephanie Cutter:

Aside from being outlier, CBS/NYT poll used weird methodology — same voters as last month, reached fewer of them, more IDed as GOP.— Ben LaBolt

Latest CNN poll showed @BarackObama up 16 among women. State polls show big advantage among women. Be wary of any poll that doesn’t.— Ben LaBolt

As well she should - highly suspect. RT @ZekeJMiller: .@stefcutter is attacking the methodology of the CBS/NYT poll on @dailyrundown— Brad Woodhouse

.@ZekeJMiller: except this poll is so clearly an outlier with a questionable sample and methodology— Brad Woodhouse

.@ZekeJMiller any poll that has Romney up with women when other polls have him down double digits has to be looked at skeptically
