??  Are people really this stupid?

Yes they are.

Fortunately, this is a weekend sample when Republicans tend not to answer surveys. (D+4, excluding "leaners" in any event).

Even then, most other polls do not reflect these results. Gallup and Rasmussen are far better gauges, long-term.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

It's the same poll.  Note that Politico does not quote the "vote election model," only the very narrow Obama lead now.  Even Politico's article is much more favorable to Romney, yet its headline betrays its bias.

I know in my household we don't answer polls.  My wife just hangs up, and I get nasty looks if I don't follow suit.
