Nothing to tear up other than the methodology and the sample they chose. From the polls internals:
In politics as of today, do you consider yourself a Republican, Democrat, or independent? (If independent, ask
Do you lean more toward the Republicans or more toward the Democrats, or are you totally independent?
Republican = 25%
Lean Republican = 8%
Totally independent = 26%
Lean Democrat = 7%
Democrat = 31%
Other (VOL) = 0%
Refused/ Not sure = 3%
Format came out ****ty, but their sample contained 25% republicans and 31% democrats with 8% and 7% leaners respectively and 26% totally independents.
Taking the last large election 2010 exit polls (sample =17,504 with every CD polled) the breakdown of thew electorate was:
35% = R
and those 29% "independents" voted 56% to 37% republican.
So if you sample a sample this biased against reality, you can get it to sing Suwanee River.
Also, even when Bloomberg asked this Democrat biased sample what the most important issue facing the country was:
Which of the following do you see as the most important issue facing the country right now? (Read list. Rotate.)
4 = Immigration
13 = Health care
18 = The federal deficit
3 = Terrorism
4 = Taxes
3 = Gay marriage
4 = Gas prices
45 = Unemployment and jobs
2 = Other (VOL) (specify
1 = None of these (VOL)
3 = Not sure
A whopping 4 whole percent chose immigration. 45% chose unemployment/jobs! Anyone care to speculate if that 4% that considers immigration the most important issue are either very pro or very anti Obama, likely unswayable by the executive order?
