Almost comically slanted

It's so easy to bash the latest Washington Post poll - D+11? Maybe in their newsroom.
As we noted yesterday, The Post poll is almost comically slanted towards Democrats. Since 2000, the largest Democrat advantage on election day was 7 percent in 2008 when the electorate was 39 percent Democrat, 32 percent Republican, and 29 percent Independent. The Post poll has Democrats up 11, 34 percent to 23 percent (with Independents at 34 percent). In 2004, when the electorate was 37 percent Democrat, 37 percent Republican, and 26 percent Independent, Bush beat Kerry 51 percent to 48 percent.
But despite this huge pro-Democrat distortion, The Post only shows Obama up by seven. And as The Weekly Standard‘s Jay Cost point out, the internals look even worse for Obama.
Democrats, it's only going to get worse for you.
