Displeased with poll numbers, Obama sics lawsuit on Gallup

The POS’s “presidency” is nothing but a criminal syndicate of thugs.

After Gallup released its recent poll findings showing Americans view Mitt Romney as better equipped than the POS to handle the economy and the federal budget deficit, the POS’s senior campaign adviser David Axelrod contacted The Gallup Organization about the company’s research “methodology”. When Gallup declined to “adjust” their methodology – SURPRISE!!! — the company was named in a lawsuit by the Department of (In)Justice.

Breitbart News reports, Sept. 6, 2012, that Axelrod’s complaint lies with varying predictive models for 2012 turnout. Gallup had predicted a lower minority turnout, thereby affecting Obama’s margin against Romney.

An email chain from Gallup employees titled “Axelrod vs. Gallup” reveals that the White House “asked” a senior Gallup staffer “to come over and explain our methodology.” Another senior Gallup official said he thought Axelrod’s pressure “sounds a little like a Godfather situation”:

 “Imagine Axel[rod] with Brando’s voice: ‘[Name redacted], I’d like you to come over and explain your methodology…You got a nice poll there….would be a shame if anything happened to it…’”

After Axelrod expressed his displeasure with Gallup, the DOJ suddenly became interested in an old allegation by a former Gallup employee that the firm violated the False Claims Act by overcharging on their contracts with other federal agencies. Michael Lindley, a former Gallup employee and former field organizer in Iowa for the 2008 Obama campaign, filed suit against Gallup in 2009. In 2010, Gallup responded to Lindley’s suit.

In addition to Gallup’s unfavorable polling numbers on the Obama re-election effort, they have also published employment numbers that are not “politically helpful” for Obama.

H/t FOTM’s moxielouise.

  1. Typical totalitarian reaction, kill the messenger.

     
  2. Is there anybody they’re NOT suing?!? No wonder they never get anything done! Betcha somebody’s gonna wake up next to a horse head…Ann Romney needs to hire guards for her stables.

     
  3. They don’t seem to have a problem with poll numbers when a disproportionately larger amount of Dems are sampled.

     
  4. How ’bout a new rule. Nobody from Chicago or who has ever taken place in Chicago politics – even for dog-catcher, can ever – EVER run for higher office.

    (Sorry, I got tired of my dumpy looking icon so I went to gravatar to upload some real avatars and it took my old blog ID, ursastriguwila and tried to hijack my FOTM and Bare Naked Islam IDs with it. Ursastriguwila is SDF – not a libtard spy sent to collect data on y’all for future agenda 21 fema camp placement!)

     
    • Phew! I was wondering who this new commenter with the very complicated multisyllabic alias is! Glad you’re back to being SDF, and with your own gravatar image! 😀

       
  6. This administration is nothing but a crime syndicate. Chicagoland thugs who need to spend the rest of their pathetic lives busting rocks in Ft. Levenworth Kansas. Every last one of them!

     
  7. He reminds me of a 8 year old little boy, who stomps his foot and tells the other kids “It’s MY ball, so we’re gonna play by MY rules or I’ll sic my big brother on you!” except on a thuggish federal level. Lower than snake poop, these people.

     
    • you got it kathy ..He is an immature little manchild throwing his temper tantrums because he is losing..Makes me Happy.

       
  8. This is where we need Eo’s bawl-baby pic.

     
  9. Maybe we should be happy they are just being sued and not arrested.

    Yet.

  10. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this great post! So the king doesn’t like Gallup for telling the truth! You are absolutely correct: they are like threatening thugs, the king, the DOJ and the rest of the administration. I hope Americans will see the purpose of this lawsuit filed by Obama’s thugs. Good for Gallup!

     
  11. Even mentioning Obama in the same sentence as “dealing the the economy” is a real complIment from Gallup. And David Axelrod wants an explanation? The DOJ is looking for ways to get back at Gallup? What’s going on with the guy they have locked up in Chicago who goes on trial any minute now, is says that Fast and Furious is a government operation to supply the Sinaloa Cartel with weapons so that they can put all the other Mexican Drug Cartels out of business. That’s what needs an explanation, Darrell Issa hasn’t mentioned this yet, the report is due out very soon, the importance of the Gallup Polls may be back in the news then, because the ratings for the president may start to slip drastically.

     
  12. I’m wondering if that bumbling idiot Axelrod decided on his own to sue Gallup, or if he discussed it with 0bama before going that route. Either way, they’re playing with a political gaboon viper. Gaboon vipers have a hemotoxin venom which kills in minutes, and there’s no antivenom for it. Axelrod and 0bama are playing political Russian Roulette with this move.
