Intimidating the Gallup Pollsters

Originally Mr Obama claimed he was not for re-electing if the unemployment rate was above 8%.  But he is running anyhow.  Do we know this man?  He seems to desire power rather than personal responsibility.

Then this item came to light:
“... Employees at the venerable Gallup polling firm suggested they felt threatened by Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod when he questioned the methodology of a mid-April poll showing Mitt Romney leading the president – according to internal emails published Thursday. ...

"According to the email chain titled “Axelrod vs. Gallup,” the White House in addition asked that a Gallup staffer “come over and explain our methodology,” which was apparently perceived as a subtle threat. A Gallup official said in an email he thought Axelrod’s pressure “sounds a little like a Godfather situation. ..

"However, when Gallup declined to change its polling methodology, the Obama administration’s Justice Department revived a 2009 whistle-blower lawsuit against the firm by joining the suit, a senior Gallup official alleges.”  --   Fox News report. 

Apparently the results were not desired by Mr Obama and Co.  We must closely watch whether there is fraud at he actual polls when ballot results are tabulated. Mr. Obama may be everything we dislike and nothing we want.
