The latest Pew Poll is an outlier

With the new polls showing the race for president getting closer the Pew Poll is one of the few polls that still shows Obama’s lead off the charts. It shows Obama with a 14 point lead: 52 – 38. (Click here)

Forgive me if I am unimpressed with this poll but I just don’t find it convincing. Besides, it goes against the trend in polls that survey “likely voters” which show the race getting tighter.

For example, the BattleGround Poll today shows it as a two point lead for Obama. (Click here)

The AP poll, also out today, shows it as a 1 point race. (Click here)

The IDB/TIPP poll that has just come out shows it as a 3.7 point race. (Click here)

May I mention that these same polls recently showed Obama with a sizable lead just days ago? The most logical conclusion is that the Pew Poll is an outlier. Obama supporters can accept it if they want, but that would only be out of wishfull thinking.
