    Looking at the latest RCP poll I find myself puzzled. If 56% of Americans think we are heading in the wrong direction, how can all those high poll results showing obama leading, or obama having a higher approval rating be correct?

    Coupla possible reasons:

    1. They don't think the other party will be any different.

    2. They may think that, but they're not THAT worried about it.

    3. They don't blame Obama.

    4. They don't like or trust Romney enough to replace Obama with him. (Probably the most likely)

    Looks like a condemnation of who they think is responsible

    Well the coal industry is blaming obama

    Political blame game plays out after Ohio coal mine operation shuts down - CNN

    I don't trust either one but I go with what I see and not the unseen.

    I'll add the media has played it's part with spin to defend obama, which is closer to the truth than not.

    Blame the media...it is what Republicans do best

    Like it or not, the public still blames Republicans for our economic mess

    I bet you had no problem with how the media treated Bush?

    In your mind they do, who controlled congress last two years of Bush? Who has controlled congress for 60+ years in part or whole since 1946? Who controls these approval polls?
