Ahead of Presidential debate, Rush Limbaugh slams polls as 'voter depression'
Pundit fumes over massive psychological conspiracy waged against Republicans
Sensing the election slipping away from his preferred candidate, portly pundit Rush Limbaugh went on the offensive last week claiming voters should ignore 'bogus' swing-state polls that show President Barack Obama pulling far ahead of GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney.
Don't believe what you see or hear, Limbaugh thundered. Pollsters are simply 'oversampling' Democrats or are blatantly 'trying to get this election finished' before the debates even start with the hope of 'suppressing your vote and depressing you,' he said.
By the weekend Obama was ahead of Romney by double digits. The president is 9 points ahead in Florida, 10 points in Ohio and 12 points in Pennsylvania according to the latest Quinnipiac University, CBS News and TheNew York Times polls.
According to Politico, Limbaugh said you should not believe your eyes and ears.
'It’s not over! It hasn’t even really begun yet. I don’t want anybody thinking this is over. I don’t want anybody falling for this. I’ll analyze these polls and explain to you why they’re bogus,' the conservative pundit said on his program.
Limbaugh vowed that the polls were all a part of a Democratic strategy to lower Republicans' voter enthusiasm ahead of the debates, which begin tonight October 3, and to dampen GOP turnout ahead of the November 6 election.
'They’re trying to wrap this up before the debates even start because I think they’re worried about the debates,' Limbaugh said. 'I think they’re trying to get this election finished and in the can by suppressing your vote and depressing you so that you just don’t think there’s any reason to vote, that it’s hopeless. They want you making other plans.'
There is a massive psychological conspiracy being waged against Republicans by the media and the pollsters, Limbaugh suggested.
'They oversample Democrats by 7 percent in Florida, where Obama is up by nine points. They oversample Democrats by 11 points in Pennsylvania, where Obama is up 12. They oversample Democrats,' he said.
'There could be a lot of reasons for this. Voter suppression, voter depression, set up the possibility of allegations of voter fraud,' Limbaugh concluded.
