In a campaign season which is on track to go down as the worst ever for cooked polling, one from CBS News and the New York Times has outdone everyone to this point.
Clearly, they didn't like what a properly weighted result would have
told them, which is that Mitt Romney is in a deadlock with Barack Obama
if one uses Gallup's party affiliation numbers from before Democratic
National Convention, or that he's up by five points if one opts for
Rasmussen's affiliation numbers. In their latest poll, with registered
voters, CBS/NYT not only oversampled Democrats, but they took the number
of actual responses and further weighted them towards Dems, as seen
after the jump.
