Confronted with polling from New York City showing parents standing with teachers unions at an NBC News education forum Tuesday, Mitt Romney took a swipe at poll results in general. During a question and answer session at the NBC event, a New York public schools parent told Romney that polling showed parents “support the union to protect our kids three to one over the mayor and the chancellor.”
Romney, who spent much of the session condemning teachers’ unions, said the results were meaningless.
“I don’t believe it for a minute,” Romney said. “I know something about polls, and you can ask questions and get any answer you want.”
Current polling from the presidential race generally shows Romney running behind President Obama.
