Obama Campaign: CBS/NYT Poll "Significantly Biased"

ABC/Ida Mae Astute(WASHINGTON) -- The Obama campaign is on the offensive against the findings of a New York Times/CBS News poll, which shows Romney up among women and two-thirds saying Obama's marriage shift was politically motivated.

Deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter on Tuesday repeatedly blasted the methodology as "significantly biased."

"We can't put the methodology of that poll aside because the methodology was significantly biased. It is a biased sample," she said on MSNBC. "They sampled a biased sample, so they re-biased the same sample. So I think that the results of that poll are pretty odd."

Monday night, Obama campaign press secretary Ben LaBolt called the methodology "weird."

"Aside from being outlier, CBS/NYT poll used weird methodology -- same voters as last month, reached fewer of them, more IDed as GOP," he tweeted.

"Latest CNN poll showed @BarackObama up 16 among women. State polls show big advantage among women. Be wary of any poll that doesn't," he said.
