5 Days to Go: Stu Breaks Down the Polls in Crucial Swing States, Catches NY Times Oversampling Dems


The New York Times is predicting that President Barack Obama will win the battleground states of Florida, Ohio and Virginia --  coincidentally a scenario that would mean a second term for the president. However, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere, executive producer of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," took a closer look at the polls and, with the election just five days away, predicted a different outcome.

"I don't think that's going to happen at all. I think it's going to be a sweep" for Romney," Beck said.

Stu explained that while The New York Times predicted Obama would win Florida by one percentage point, the Democrat to Republican ratio in the Times sample favored Democrats by seven points, plenty to skew the results.

In Virginia, The New York Times poll shows Obama winning by two points. Once again, the sample favors Democrats, but by eight points this time.

Finally, in Ohio, the paper has Obama blowing Romney away, winning the state by eight points. The poll has a plus eight Democratic sample.

When you take into account the Democratic oversampling and the average Democrat/Republican ratio in polls over the past four elections, Stu explained, the polls actually indicate Romney wins in all three swing states, though Beck admitted this is just "conjecture" at this point.
