Cubans for Obama? Beware: Pollster Sergio Bendixen Works for Obama, George Soros (Updated)

Bendixen

BENDIXEN LINKED TO OBAMA AND GEORGE SOROS
For decades, leftist and pollster Sergio Bendixen has tried through his “polls” to push narratives to benefit Democrats. His “polling” on the Cuban Exile vote and many others has been proven wrong numerous times. “The media continues to quote his tainted results because it is exactly what they are looking for,” reports the Cuban blog, Babalu. [see below].

The Washington Free Beacon via AmericaTimes reported back in February 2012 the connection between Bendixen, Obama, and George Soros:

President Obama’s re-election campaign manager Jim Messina inadvertently revealed Obama for America has hired Sergio Bendixen, a pollster who also represents an organization founded by left-wing billionaire George Soros.

[…]

Messina tweeted [see tweet below], “Tweeting someone else’s words caused a stir, but the GOP is on the wrong side of every Hispanic voter priority.” That follow-up tweet featured a link to an Obama campaign strategy memo entitled “Republicans Seal Their Fate with Hispanic Voters in 2012.” Bendixen, listed in the document as an Obama for America pollster, prepared that memo.

Bendixen is the president and principal of Bendixen & Amandi International, a research and communication strategy firm whose clients include the Open Society Institute. The Open Society Institute, a private grant-making foundation that aims to “shape public policies that assure greater fairness in political, legal, and economic systems,” recently changed its name to “Open Society Foundations.” George Soros founded it in 1984.

Bendixen & Amandi International also represents the Ford Foundation, which contributed more than $2.5 million to the liberal Center for American Progress between 2009 and 2010.

“POLLSTER” BENDIXEN WRONG NUMEROUS TIMES
Via Babalu Blog:

Whenever the mainstream media trots out the fictitious “generational shift” among Cuban Exiles to a softer stance against the Castro dictatorship, more often than not they cite polls conducted by the Miami polling firm of Sergio Bendixen. Although his polling on this issue (and practically all other issues) has been proven wrong numerous times, and his methodology has been shown to be dubious at best and downright fraudulent at worst, the media continues to quote his tainted results because it is exactly what they are looking for. The liberal media has a narrative they want to push, and Sergio Bendixen is one of those pollsters who appears to begin with the polling results he is looking for and then devises a methodology to achieve those results.

Over the years, Bendixen’s polling has amassed a history of being consistently and repeatedly wrong. Going all the way back to when he confidently declared that Violeta Chamorro stood no chance of beating Daniel Ortega in Nicaragua (she won in a landslide), to more recent times when he announced his polling showed [Democrat] Joe Garcia the victor over Mario Diaz-Balart on election day only to watch FroJoe go down in bitter defeat at the voting booth. Sergio Bendixen has proven himself to not only be wrong on a consistent basis, but also arrogantly boastful about his unreliable polls until the very last moment. That is perhaps the reason we are not seeing as many Bendixen polls in the past few years. Bad polling is bad polling, and when your data is proven consistently wrong as that of Bendixen’s, it is hard to find clients willing to pay you for fraudulent and unreliable results.

UPDATE: BENDIXEN’S PARTNER WITH AXELROD
