The CBS poll
So CBS releases a poll showing Bush's approval rating at a "record low" 34%. Wingnuts responded, as they ALWAYS do to these kind of polls, that the sample was biased toward Democrats:
CBS "weighted" its sample to reflect an ideal cross-section of American adults. They adjusted the number of self-described Republicans up to 28 percent and Democrats down to 37 percent, and independents with the rest. That's hardly the exit-poll breakdown the networks found on Election Day 2004 (37 percent GOP, 37 percent Democrat, 26 percent independent).Do you idiots ever consider the possibility that people are more likely to identify as a Democrat, and less likely to identify as a Republican, in 2006 than in 2004?
