Recent polling has independent pollsters and political analysts calling foul. A series of polls authorized by media companies are using biased weighting to their polls that skews the results to favor Barack Obama and attempts to dissuade the electorate.
As previously mentioned by The American Maverick, Beware of the Polls! Many polls announced since the DNC Convention are horrifically skewed to favor Barack Obama. Polls such as PPP, Gallup, IPSOS, Quinnipiac and others, have slanted poll results in tracking who America would vote for President. Major polling firms are over weighting Democrat voter samples by +10%. Some polls only provided for 24% Republican sampling and a few only sampled only 5-10% of independent voters. For weeks the media has been playing up the seemingly non-stop polling which shows Obama with a advantage of 5-13% versus Mitt Romney.
Luckily, there is sanity in this world of political buffoonery. A Virginia based polling firm called the QStar Group, analyzes raw polling numbers that are publicly available from the big polling firms. QStar takes other polling firms voter sample numbers and realistically balances the weighting to properly reflect voter sentiment based on political party, sex, race, etc.
QStar's work is startling and extremely encouraging for supporters of the Romney/Ryan Presidential ticket. Here is a brief example of how QStar's analysis takes skewed results and provides realistic results that clearly show Mitt Romney as having the hand up with American voters versus Barack Obama:

Recent, well respected Democrat pollsters, such as Doug Schoen and Pat Caddell, have been very critical of how polling companies are not using sound weighting practices which skew results. This skewing can be a diabolical method of the left to suppress the voter intensity of the right.
Fortunately, there are pollsters such as Dean Chamber's QStar Group that break down the data to show America that voters are clearly supporting the Romney/Ryan ticket as we head towards the waning weeks of the 2012 election.
