    Washington Post-ABC News Poll (washingtonpost.com)

    I see that the formatting didn't translate. I'll try to fix it.

    I'm not going to list all the different categories, and will leave it up to you to post the parts that interest you.

    I can't make heads or tails out of your thread. Did it give the break down of who they polled?

    They don't explain who they polled (their political lean).

    But looks like Obama isn't doing too well...

    Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as president? Do you approve/disapprove strongly or somewhat?
    47% approve
    48% disapprove

    Do you approve or disapprove of the way Obama is handling the economy?
    39% approve
    57% disapprove

    Do you approve or disapprove of the way Obama is handling the federal budget deficit?
    38% approve
    60% disapprove

    Do you approve or disapprove of the way Obama is handling taxes?
    45% approve
    47% disapprove

    Has Obama been too willing or not willing enough to compromise with the leadership of the Republican Party on the budget deficit?
    Too willing 29%
    Not willing enough 58%

    Do you think large cuts in federal spending would do more to (create jobs) or do more to (cut jobs) in this country?
    create jobs 47%
    cut jobs 44%

    On another subject: Thinking about the next election in November 2012, right now, are you inclined to vote to re-elect your representative in Congress, or are you inclined to look around for someone else to vote for? (notice the lack of party affiliation in this question, unlike most of the others??)
    re-elect 30%
    look around 63%


    See? I can cherry pick just certain points in a poll too.

    Question #5 is very interesting:


    [​IMG]


    Small Businesses have more faith in Obama, by 48 to 39.

    1,2 & 16 are even more telling.

    That's fine. I said I was going to highlight what I found interesting.



    But the disapproval of Obama pales to the high numbers of the Repubs, who get 67% and 68% disapproval of their handling of the economy and the federal deficit.
