Los Angeles Times Poll (Showing Brown Blow-Out) Oversampled Latinos

Ah, the games you can play with polls.  The leftist Los Angeles Times released a poll yesterday showing Jerry Brown with a double-digit lead over Meg Whitman in the race for governor of California.  Other polls, however, released at the same time, show the race much closer than that.  Oversampling of Democrats or Republicans can give a biased poll result, one that does not represent the actual state of the electorate.  The LA Times poll oversampled latinos and obtained the desired skewed result, no doubt to encourage a larger Democrat turnout on November 2nd.

Donald Douglas has the story here.

Bonjour Stogie , les sondages sont faussés comme chez nous en France afin de destabiliser les votants ! Ce sont bien tous les memes ces journalistes ! comme les faux sondages sur la réforme des des retraites !la majorité des Francais savent que c'est une obligation de le faire , mais une minorité composée de fonctionnaires ,les plus nantis du pays, veulent dicter leur loi au gouvernement et n'hésitent pas à envoyer les enfants dans les rues ! ces gauchistes me dégoutent !

Hello Stogie, the polls are false like in France, in order to influence the vote! These journalists are all the same! Like in the false polls about pension reform [in France]! The majority of French people know that it must be done [raising the retirement age from 60 to 62], but a minority made up of bureaucrats, the most well off in the country, want to dictate their law to the government and do not hesitate to send children into the streets! These leftists disgust me!
