CNN Poll: Grand Old Party Downgrade | TPMDC
wow a liberal poll stating we still hate republicans is news.
fyi; obama has a 50% aproval rating or better in 10 states.
none are over 60%
Interviews with 1,008 adult Americans conducted by telephone
SHOULD WE LAUGH NOW?
i'm surprised those numbers aren't lower, frankly. the dems are pretty damn weak and unlikeable, but outside some marginally tolerable people in their libertarian wing the republicans are completely without redeeming values of any kind. the only thing they're running on at this point is ODS and ad campaigns made possible by fat-cat donations.
Why would they believe anything else? The media is telling them its the republicans fault. They don't have time to find and hunt for the truth themselves. Most people don't follow politics so much as to know all the intricacies on and the reasons for things. They listen to the 20 minute soundbytes they hear. So whats your point?
if you find the standard methodology of conducting polls funny, sure, have a yuck. but that's how it's typically done, calling about a thousand people.
And destroying the economy.
Yes, the Dems are weak but the Reps are destructive. Most people are tired of the destructive.
The sample includes 808 interviews among landline respondents
and 200 interviews among cell phone respondents

People are sick and tired of the borrow - spend - borrow - spend - spend - borrow - spend.
So the media needs to keep up the attack and depend on the unthinking crowd of peons to parrot this failed idea as a good thing.
do you get paid in crackers?
