    Politics | AP-GfK poll: Views on economy, Obama role sour | Seattle Times Newspaper

    A taste of the Shamelessness that the AP calls Objective Reporting on Objective Polling...

    "Americans' views on the economy have dimmed this summer. But so far, the growing pessimism doesn't seem to be taking a toll on President Barack Obama's re-election prospects...

    That can't be good news for a president revving up his re-election campaign. Yet there are several hopeful signs for Obama...

    And more Americans still blame former President George W. Bush rather than Obama for the economic distress. Some 31 percent put the bulk of the blame on Obama, while 51 percent point to his Republican predecessor...

    Obama also fares better than Congress in the blame department. Some 44 percent put "a lot" or "most" of the blame on Republicans while 36 percent point to congressional Democrats...

    Of course, there are limits to what a president can do...

    So why hasn't the rise in pessimism taken more of a toll?..."

    Well, AP... In YOUR Poll, it's because you probably Oversampled DemocRATS, as you often do, and of course your Specifc Tactics in your Questions have to be Examined...

    But that's not going to be done when your are Cheerleading for the guy you not only Voted for in 2008, but who you will so Obviously Vote for again in 2012...

    Nice Work as always, AP!

    Imagine the AP saying, "there's only so much a President can do" over 8 years of Boooooooosh!... Hell, you would have thought we were in a Great Depression then... And it averaged 5% Unemployment and Consistent Growth, for Allah's Sake!
