Obama campaign uses sarcasm to criticize polls

According to ABC News:

A new AP-Ipsos poll shows Clinton ahead of Obama 35-18 — nowhere near the 33 point advantage shown in the ABC/Post poll. The Obama camp offers up some triumphant sarcasm. “A shockwave was sent through Washington late today as the AP released a poll showing that Obama halved Clinton’s lead in national polling in just one day,” the Obama camp says in a deadly serious press release (we swear this is as real as the Thompson memo above is fake) obtained exclusively by The Note.

” ‘We were confident that once the American people saw that Obama did in fact out-raise Senator Clinton by more than $12 million dollars over the course of this year, that we would indeed come roaring back in the incredibly meaningful national polls,’ said Obama strategist David Axelrod. ‘As we continue to fine-tune our attempts to get on the front page of Roll Call and out of the Des Moines Register, we are pleased to see that our efforts have already begun coming to fruition.’ Besides leading in primary dollars raised, Axelrod later mentioned as an aside that Obama also was leading in Iowa, has the largest grassroots operation in the history of presidential politics and, by the way, national polls are still meaningless.”

I think it speaks for itself.
