Barack Obama Polling

There are all kinds of polls out there on the President. One of the latest polls has Pres. Obama’s approval rating and being worth electing again below 50% , but one could find a poll on the President both pro and con these days. One of my liberal Facebook friends knows were to find all the pro Obama polls. I do not site too many polls.

The one pollster that continues to sit well with me is Scott Rasmussen. His polling was the most accurate throughout the 2008 presidential election. I remember the Zogby Poll got things very wrong. Zogby had John McCain ahead consistently from the announcement of Sarah Palin as the Republican Vice President Nominee to the election. McCain/Palin received the projection to win by a respectable margin. I wonder how many Zogby employees were let go after the 2008 presidential election!

When the poll is against who you support, you tend to play it down and/or ignore it. Listen to a reaction to a poll that has Pres. Obama is seriously down among Independents who gave him the presidency in 2008.

Hear the entire segment which has to do more with Libya

  1. “Polls are for strippers.” Interesting. If the poll had been favorable toward the president, I’ll wager the reaction would have been very different.

  2. .Besides creating a threat to world peace the act of aggression sucked all of the oxygen out of the days news cycle..That hurt because O was heading for Kokomo to cheerlead the recovering economy and do a GM-IPO victory dance..Oops..Then the Fed announces that its cutting its growth forecast for 2010 and 2011..To make matters even worse Govt Motors shares tumbled about a buck heading down below last weeks offering price..Then the coup de grace Zogby releases polling results showing the Presidents approval rating dipping below the Mendoza Line..In baseball a .200 batting average is nicknamed the Mendoza Line ..A batting average below the Mendoza Line is considered unqualified for the pros even if a player has strong fielding skills..The Presidential equivalent is an approval rating of 40 .Well according to the latest Zogby poll Pres Obama has fallen below the Presidential Mendoza line..Uh-oh.. .Other more reliable polls peg Obama s approval in the mid-40s so I take Zogby with a grain of salt. .But the Zogby results give me an opportunity to talk about the Mendoza Line an opportunity that just can t be passed up…

  3. 2 midterm elections with historic losses in the House of Representatives…Obamas job approval rating as calculated by the has now sunk to 39 a new low for his 22-month presidency that began with so much hope and excitement and poll numbers up around 70. Obama has even fallen into a statistical tie with none other than Sarah Palin the former Alaska governor…How embarrassing that is because other polls have shown a majority of Americans believe she is unqualified for the presidency.
