    I suggest you read what he and the article said. THE majority think Obama is as bad or worse than Bush.

    It's not a difficult concept.

    And, a plurality is not a majority.

    Maybe you need more coffee.

    Either way, it is not a great statement about the Obama administration.

    Unfortunately, most of these folks, like so many Americans believe that the President actually has a greater affect on things than he actually does.

    American was not set up to be that way.

    if that were the case, we would be a monarchy.

    President Obama is getting the blame for a lot of things he can't control. And being compared to another president who was in the same boat.

    Which isn't to say that starting those wars was someone else's issue. On that ISSUE, Bush is front and center a candidate for the bottom of the barrel.

    That President Obama hasn't done much differently gives him a ticket to join ex-President GWB at the bottom.

    No, I got the concept.

    Same + worse = majority think he's as bad or worse

    It's what stats you cite and how you present them.

    My point is that because more people think he is better than Bush than those who think he is worse (by a 43-34 margin) those numbers can just as easily be cited as "an even larger majority think he's about the same or better."

    I think that's all irrelevant anyways.

    Ultimately the numbers that matter in the poll are the Independents like I cited in my original post. It looks to me like Obama needs to get some work done there.

    I see what you wanted to say.

    I'm not a big fan of polls myself. For the most part, they don't predict shit.

    And, I agree with you that the independents' vote is where the win is. Obama's position with them is dubious, true.

    Dubious but not anything insurmountable.

    And yeah, I take all polls with a large grain of salt especially this far out. Once it gets close to crunch time I think they become more accurate.
