Gallup editor in chief Frank Newport explains why party identification isn't a factor they take into consideration in doing their polling.

We do not weight by party at all - we never have and we don't now. We think party identification is an attitudinal variable that fluctuates just like who you're going to vote for...


When criticizing polls, people point to the number of people tallied from each party as a sign of bias, so Newport's explanation is intruiguing. Before the first debate, when Obama lead, the right was complaining about methodology, but with Gallup consistently showing Romney ahead by 6 points, now the left is mad.

A good rule of thumb is that anything Democrats accuse Republicans of doing is something Democrats are guilty of themselves. Watch the liberal senate candidate in Arizona, Richard Carmona, prove the point by warring on women and comparing his male debate moderator with Candy Crowley.

After a heated exchange during Thursday’s debate, moderator Brahm Resnik remarked: “Geez, now I know how Candy Crowley felt.”

“You’re prettier than her,” Carmona interjected, creating a moment of awkwardness.

Carmona was already under attack by Republican Jeff Flake for his treatment of women.

The simple 30-second spot, based off a POLITICO story from May, features Carmona’s former supervisor, Cristina Beato, looking straight into the camera and recalling the surgeon general pounding on her door in the middle of the night.

“The ad just appears very believable. … The ad in and of itself — it’s a good ad,” said one top Arizona Democrat who supports Carmona. “They’re trying to insinuate he’s got a woman problem. Their problem is that it’s a singular incident that doesn’t play into a larger narrative.”

Carmona's debate remark reinforces the narrative launched by the ad.

ABC News shows how compassionate the left is when it gets its way on policy. They own urban America, and the result is more deadly for the poor and minorities than fighting in Afghanistan.

A new attack ad from the Brown campaign continues the she's not who she says she is meme. With a new poll showing Warren up 9, is it possible that these attacks have done all the good they can do and are now doing bad for Scott?

Liberal fraud can be hard to find, as it's only obvious if there are liberals around - just ask Andrea Mitchell at Obama's MSNBC. When told by Romney senior adviser Barbara Comstock that there's not equal pay for women at the network, Mitchell immediately agreed.

Comstock: We know here at MSNBC the guys get paid more. We know that.

Mitchell: We certainly do.
