According to Mike Flynn at Breitbart, WaPo is using its latest poll to blat that Obama is beating Romney by 2 points, 49-47.
But the poll sample included only 22% Republicans. Gallup shows 28% of Americans currently self-identify as Republican.
And, as Flynn notes, if only 22% of actual voters next November are Republicans,
“it would be about the lowest turnout for the GOP in modern history. In 2010, 35% of voters were Republican. In 2008, the year Obama swept into the White House, 32% of voters were Republican. Even in 2006, the year Democrats took control of Congress, 36% of voters were Republican.”
Still , according to analysts, WaPo’s bias is consistent, which means changes within WaPo polls are actually meaningful.
Check out what happened to Obama’s favorability among women over the time period in which the White House and its media kennels ranted that Republicans just want women to be Stepford Wives:
Obama lost 6 points to Romney among women registered to vote.
Obama lost 21 points to Romney among married women!

For the record, while I agree with Zo’s economics, I do not agree with his interpretation of “blessed are the poor.”
Matthew 5:3 actually says: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
It’s got nothing whatsoever to do with material wealth or lack thereof.
Jesus is saying here that those who are “poor in spirit” will be blessed by God with eternal life.
A pauper can be poor in spirit. Or not. Likewise a billionaire.
Poverty of SPIRIT is about knowing who one truly is in relation to God.
