This is the full headline from Rasmussen
Hey, I remember voters saying the same in 2008. The RBC & other shenanigans happened.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 57% of voters feel Clinton is qualified to be president, but 34% disagree and say she is not.
Here are Obama’s numbers for comparison
As for President Obama, 51% say he is fit for the job. However, 44% say he is not qualified to be president, even though he has now served 17 months in the job.
Thee “R” candidates are worse that B0’s.
Breathless headline in B0botland
6. Oh noes the pumabaggers are at it again. nt
76. And the dead enders just keep on dead ending. n/t
and the lowered expectations defense
Those numbers are GREAT for Obama, considering that HE, unlike Hillary, has had
to actually BE president. What a STUPID poll!
and that lovely line freepers used re: Gore in 2000
81. She lost get over it n/t
and a prediction is made
85. Oh, this will go well……………
It’ll be the usual reaction:
The Hillary supporters will completely agree (me included). The Hillary haters will spew their vitriol. The moderators will decide to close the thread when the fur has flown long enough to clog the air ducts.
I’ll revisit to check.
Not really, but tabloids declared this the next day after the passing of historical Romneycare and we get a steady stream of polls and election news.
For instance, Wall Street Journal has a piece on Obama’s fundraising
Republicans say that Obama’s fund-raising trips will present contrasting economic images.
Mr. Obama will be going to the Estefans’ waterside mansion (six bedrooms, 11 bathrooms and a separate guest house on the grounds) after holding a space summit at Cape Canaveral, where NASA workers are bracing for job losses in the face of Mr. Obama’s plans for the space agency.
For once I agree with the “R”s who are generously quoted here
“For months President Obama has been promising a ‘hard pivot’ to focus on jobs and the economy. But once again politics is trumping policy as the president heads back on the campaign trail to raise some much-needed cash for Democrats trying to weather the storm after passing government-run health care,” said Katie Wright, an RNC spokeswoman.
Most article are poll based. For instance, a surprising headline on tea party make-up from NYT/CBS poll
Poll Finds Tea Party Backers Wealthier and More Educated
.Oops! Sounds like the B0b0ts vs bubbas narrative from 2008 primary. Does it mean they are now the good guys?
And just for the record, no Angry white women, sorry
The 18 percent of Americans who identify themselves as Tea Party supporters tend to be Republican, white, male, married and older than 45.
18% of Americans? OK, let’s deride them some more then!
A funny quirk – seems the Ron Paul Heads got to Rasmussen.
Election 2012: Barack Obama 42%, Ron Paul 41%
Good for them, I say, at least he said one thing sane as of late.
On a more serious note, AP which has Obama’s numbers way above Gallup, measures a slide. Their headline is
AP-GfK Poll: Obama slips, other Dems slide, too
Just 49 percent of people now approve of the job Obama’s doing overall, and less than that — 44 percent — like the way he’s handled health care and the economy.
We have B0botland input on this one ranging from “don’t believe it” to “they deserve it”. Some highlights
8. Looks like the dire forecasts for November may come true. Just had
staggering increases in our Health Insurance Premiums. I have never seen people so mad about anything as they are about Health Care Care reform. We had like a Tea Party gathering at our main shopping center here in Los Altos, CA (East Long Beach). I have never seen any demonstration of any kind for anything around here. I didn’t see any vicious signs or anything on a drive-by, but plenty of Replace Obama Now ones. I was too far away to see who had made the signs, which were professionally done. I decided to go to another shopping center for my Skippy.They shot themselves in the foot by forcing the Insurance Industry Profit Protection Act
down our throats. They deserve what they get.
24. Do you have your ear to the ground about doctors leaving the
profession because of HCR? I’m on my third Doctor in less than a year from old ones leaving because they weren’t making any money. They both told me this. Only 6% of medical school graduates are going into general practice now. There is a big push for nurses to become Nurse Practitioners. That would help a lot. I see NP’s regularly now. Doesn’t bother me, except their knowledge base is not real wide. Anyway, I have seen first-hand doctors leaving their professions, even though it was before HCR passed. Wondered if you had?…
And ironically, in light of Rasmussen’s latest tie between Obama and Ron Paul, most of them praise the pollster now as its numbers are better than Gallup’s.
Meanwhile Rasmussen of all polls is showing Obama’s strongest polling to date.
50% approval, 49% disapproval. First time in months that Razz is showing Obama not with a higher disapproval then approval.
Personally, I think these polls are mostly baloney anyway. His approval is clearly between 47 to 52% or so. Ap’s polls were on the higher side then the other ones.
But since the after-effects of the healthcare are prominent in the polls, here’s a good piece about the never ending surprises that keep coming from that
The predictable result: Weeks after it became law, we’re still finding out what’s in it, just like the speaker said.
Would you believe that Obamacare contains a tax increase on the sick and the old?
That in their rush to save face and pass a bill, members of Congress might have accidentally left themselves and staffers without a health plan?
That Obamacare does nothing to stop the huge premium increases that Obama pointed at to justify his bill?
I would. And it’s probably why the enthusiasm of some after the passing has melted somewhat, after figuring out they cannot sign for their free Obamacare.
Meanwhile a less quoted poll includes me in it
63 percent of those individuals who supported repealing the legislation also were in favor of Congress continuing to work on health care system reforms.
When asked how important they thought it was for Congress to work on “establishment of a public option that would give individuals a choice between government provided health insurance or private health insurance,” 67 percent of Americans rated this as an important topic to address. This finding is even more striking given the fact that 59 percent of those in favor of repealing the health care reform legislation rated the public option as important to pursue. Another surprise is that 67 percent of Republicans and 59 percent of Independents also agreed that the public option was an important topic to be addressed by Congress.
So, all these people are being ignored – by everyone, really.
Now, back to waiting for the update of the tabloids site
I was going to write about Gallup’s new poll on the democratic image
Americans’ favorable rating of the Democratic Party dropped to 41% in a late March USA Today/Gallup poll, the lowest point in the 18-year history of this measure. Favorable impressions of the Republican Party are now at 42%, thus closing the gap between the two parties’ images that has prevailed for the past four years.
It certainly belies the belief of the Obama operative in B0botland
It seems that despite the thick propaganda, people finally saw that democrats in power behave no better than Republicans did when they had their turn. But there is a remarkable piece of news in the timeline – h/t Hotair for noticing it.
Yes, the Dems are usually on top, but they were roughly even during Clinton’s first term and Bush’s first term. ‘Twas impeachment and Bush’s second term that drove the GOP down. .
I don’t ever remember polls, articles – anything in the media informing us that the GOP lost credibility with their
Arkansas project efforts. All I ever heard was about Clinton being “disgraced”, divisive and Democrats being angry, ashamed that he damaged the party. That it was his fault that Gore was robbed er “lost” and Bush “won”
Look at the 31% approval of the GOP in 1999. GOP hurt itself more than it could hurt Clinton or the Democrats. This was never reported. People were smarter than the whole media then – and they are now too.
I know the insurance and Wall Street overlords are going to prop him up, but the peasants have lost their awe.
The public is split right down the middle on whether President Barack Obama should be re-elected and a majority of Americans predict he will be a one-term president, according to a new national poll.
In other words: asked if they wanted Obama or a republican, the electorate as a whole said: “same shit”
And for all the “he’s better off than Clinton at this stage” peppered at every turn, this is the number I would worry about (if I cared)
“Independents currently favor the Republican by 11 points.”
Because, what this poll may not be saying, but others do, Independents are the fastest growing party (or lack of it) that dirty politics created as of late.
At Top of the Ticket, Andrew Malcolm illustrates this with a big white space
Here’s a closeup photo above of the Republican candidate for president who’s currently tied with President Obama for the 2012 White House race.
Meanwhile, Obama, who slighted his base on everything, is offering them cheap red meat with in your face photo ops like the one sported by Obama Times today
Some of the weaker minded B0bots will go for it, I’m sure, but many more are off that treadmill.
And I found it! Thread cheering a whole series of these pics
Obama: “Who the f*** reads this sh*t?” (Pic)
Appropriatedly named Talking point memo is issuing a new meme based on a Quinnipiac poll
Poll: Tea Party Is The Home Of The Angry White Woman
Just in time to counteract headlines such as
Obama To Host Pro-Life Dems For Abortion Executive Order Signing
There’s a recount of th long history of this Romneycare passing in WaPo. A small passage about Stupak caught my attention
The women became furious. Voices were raised. Rep. Louise M. Slaughter (D-N.Y.), a close friend of Pelosi’s, lamented about “all the women we were just throwing under the bus” and called it “a betrayal of all the women that had fought for this for so long.” Pelosi, according to two participants, had tears in her eyes. But she got the votes — that time.
The ladies quickly got over it though and sold the rest of us. Now we have a Supak EO and everyone is happy.
And now, that the women Democrats have been silenced (it’s just symbolic, ya know), the tea party is blamed on women because
55% are women, while just 45% are men.
and only later we get told that this is the usual percentage for all political parties
As for the gender breakdown, the 55% female majority puts the tea party movement in line with other political parties, with the exception of independents. That group is more male than female by a margin of 54-46.
But the opportunity presents itself to nail the bitches, so why not?
I don’t know how many PUMAs joined the tea party – I know some did and that’s when I removed my own affiliation with PUMA to avoid confusion.
I do however see an ugly backlash in this headline, a return to the misogynistic days of the 2008 elections.
Be careful what you wish for. I had just written a fer days ago that being ignored is even worse than being maligned in the last election.
In fact, they talk about it in B0botland and all old slurs are back
. Angry (and I would bet, extremely uneducated) OLDER white women
I would love to see the educational level correlates. I am betting that this is a consequence of many decades of diminishing high school graduation rates during these older women’s lives (and increasing divorce rates) with the accompanying decimation of future opportunities.
Just my hunch, but a good one, I think
9. Shouldn’t that be OLD angry white woman?
Yeah. The gut hatred is back. That coupled with the hint of race bait in the “White” shall drive the November elections. At least from the B0bots POV.
Only a few days later, here comes a Gallup poll demolishing that factoid
Tea Party supporters are decidedly Republican and conservative in their leanings. Also, compared with average Americans, supporters are slightly more likely to be male and less likely to be lower-income.
Gallup has the numbers reversed from Quinnipiac: (second row represents percentages of US adults)
55% men, 45 women.
But then again, all polls are manufactured reality. Gallup just wanted to make a different point than Quinnipiac.
