Obama’s poll numbers interpreted

Obama’s Poll Numbers Are Falling to Earth

“It is simply wrong for commentators to continue to focus on President Barack Obama’s high levels of popularity, and to conclude that these are indicative of high levels of public confidence in the work of his administration. Indeed, a detailed look at recent survey data shows that the opposite is most likely true. The American people are coming to express increasingly significant doubts about his initiatives, and most likely support a different agenda and different policies from those that the Obama administration has advanced.”

While I agree that it is simply wrong for commentators to keep gushing about Obama’s popularity [while ignoring the growing unpopularity of his socialist policies] it probably isn’t going to stop.  After all, some may say that it was wrong of the MSM to whitewash Obama’s record as the most liberal Senator.  What about ignoring his radical associations with people like Reverend Wright, Father Pfleger and William Ayers?  How about not investigating his career prior to being elected to office?  The MSM has displayed more curiosity about Michelle Obama’s biceps than about the real Barack Obama and how his left-wing policies will affect America.

“Polling data show that Mr. Obama’s approval rating is dropping and is below where George W. Bush was in an analogous period in 2001. Rasmussen Reports data shows that Mr. Obama’s net presidential approval rating — which is calculated by subtracting the number who strongly disapprove from the number who strongly approve — is just six, his lowest rating to date.”

Did you catch that?  Lower than George W. Bush!

“Overall, Rasmussen Reports shows a 56%-43% approval, with a third strongly disapproving of the president’s performance. This is a substantial degree of polarization so early in the administration. Mr. Obama has lost virtually all of his Republican support and a good part of his Independent support, and the trend is decidedly negative.”

And suddenly, I’m feeling positive.

    ANYONE REMEMBER THAT SONG “..OLD BLACK MAGIC?” THERE’S A LINE IN IT THAT GOES SOMETHING LIKE “..DOWN AND DOWN IT GOES, ROUND AND ROUND IT GOES, IN A SPIN….? SHOULD BE THE THEME SONG FOR THE ANOINTED ONE’S POLL NUMBERS.

    BOY, HE MUST BE HAVING FITS (OR WHATEVER KENYANS GET WHEN THEY’RE ANGRY). HIS POLL NUMBERS ARE LOWER THAN THOSE OF “TRUE” PRESIDENT BUSH.

    HEY ANOINTED ONE. PLEASE RELEASE ALL YOUR PERTINENT PAPERS. I WANT TO PRACTICE MY KNOWLEDGE OF SWAHILI!!
