    You worship for Politicians and A PARTY is rather nauseating.



    And I'm sure that upstanding Pelso would'nt lie to you little sheep. Like they raised 1.5 million from those GRASSROOTS in the 36% of the people who APPROVE of the Obama..:eusa_liar::eusa_liar::lol:

    I don't put much stock in the Realclearpolitics polls.
    most of the other polls show Obama under 40 down to 36%
    Abc or Nbc today had a poll where only 37% expected the Obama to be reelected. it was posted here I think.

    What does a poll on whether people expect Obama to be re-elected have to do with his approval ratings?

    I post RCP because they're a weighted average of all the other polls, making them a better snapshot than a single poll. (By the way, the lowest current poll of Obama's approval rating is 39%. The highest is 45%).

    RealClearPolitics doesn't do polling. They average all the other polls.
    No, actually only one poll from two weeks ago has him under 40%.

    Rasmussen, Gallup, CBS/Opinion Research, and FOX all have released polls in the last few days, all between 42 and 45.
    And that's not an approval rating poll.

    lol - quibbling about how badly disappointed Americans are in Obama.

    Is it very badly or extremely badly?


    Maybe it's only very badly after all. Must be comforting hanging on to that shred.

    I don't give two shits about Obama. I don't support him, and never have.

    But I work in politics, and my job requires me to follow polls, and understand them. So it's a pet peeve of mine when people either make up numbers, or willfully disregard numbers they don't like, or just plain and simple don't understand what they mean.
