A CBS-New York Times-Quinnipiac poll released yesterday shows President Obama leading swing-state Ohio by five points. In the Wall Street Journal, Karl Rove says the methodology behind it is “absurd“:
Desperate Democrats are now hanging their hopes on a new Quinnipiac University/New York Times/CBS News poll showing the president with a five-point Ohio lead. But that survey gives Democrats a +8 advantage in turnout, the same advantage Democrats had in 2008. That assumption is, to put it gently, absurd.
