Washington Times chief political correspondent Donald Lambro claimed that pollsters "are seeing deep dissatisfaction across the country at just about every level of government," and that "[w]hile neither party can take solace in the [poll] numbers, there may be some perverse comfort for Republicans in the fact that many of the Democrats' biggest gubernatorial stars have run into political trouble." To support his claim, Lambro cited polls conducted by Republican-linked polling groups without identifying them as such.
The Los Angeles Times reprinted an abridged version of a flawed Associated Press story about links between disgraced former lobbyist Jack Abramoff and Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid. The Washington Times' Donald Lambro also selectively cited the article in a column.
In his Washington Times column, Donald Lambro repeated a number of falsehoods about the domestic spying scandal.
Donald Lambro misleadingly cited an old poll conducted by the National Republican Senatorial Committee to claim that "polls show" Republican Thomas H. Kean Jr. leads Democrat Robert Menendez by 13 points in the 2006 New Jersey senatorial race. In fact, more recent independent polls show Menendez with a lead.
