Conservatives: How Obama won

There's an interesting conservative analysis "How Obama got elected" by John Ziegler who interviewed a dozen voters, and also commissioned a Zogby poll.

The study, which was featured on Fox News, claims that the news media was responsible for electing Obama despite his "extreme liberal positions and radical political alliances."

According to the site, those interviewed in the video above were chosen for the following reasons:

On Election day twelve Obama voters were interviewed extensively right after they voted to learn how the news media impacted their knowledge of what occurred during the campaign. These voters were chosen for their apparent intelligence/verbal abilities and willingness to express their opinions to a large audience. The rather shocking video below seeks to provide some insight into which information broke through the news media clutter and which did not.

Of course, that fact that those interviewed were screened (by whom?) brings in to question the randomness of the sample and how much it represents the general voting population.

Ziegler asks more obscure questions about Obama and Biden, as compared to questions on well-publicized information on McCain and Palin.

Obviously, the Palin information was covered extensively on the media. Anyone who followed the Obama campaign knows that there was equally a lot of negative coverage on the president-elect as well. For example, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright controversy.

Here is my analysis on how Obama won.
