Polls the Progressive Media/Commentator Never Seem to Mention
For those of you who look at or occasionally look at polls, there seems to a great disparity among the pollsters depending on their political stripes, which is not at all surprising.
To those of us who are familiar with progressivism know they will not stop at anything to control the media narrative including bias polls because after all to them the ends always justify the means.
Today for example Gallop shows Obama's approval rating at 50% +3 and Obama's disapproval rating at 44% -1.
Rasmussen Reports on the other hand shows on their daily presidential tracking poll that the nation's voters who "strongly approve" of the way that Obama is performing his job at 24% while 43% "strongly disapprove" of his job performance.
That is a -19 on the approval index rating.
How is that Rasmussen and Gallop are so far apart.
Could it be that Gallop is in the tank for Obumbler?
Are those they poll overwhelmingly progressives/liberals/demoRats?
In my estimation probably BOTH.
Over the years I have followed Scott Rasmussen and his organization and have always found them to be the most fair unbiased group one can count on for a view what people are thinking on a range of subjects and topics.
As one of the first pollsters in the media, Gallop seems to be constantly used as the go-to-guys for the progressive media/commentators the gold standard.
Over time though I would contend that they are no longer trust worthy especially since the Obumbler election.
Here are some other very interesting polls/surveys that Rasmussen has done that run completely contrary the narrative being spewed by Obumbler and the progressive media/commentators on some basic ideas about topics important to many Americans.
One has to wonder from who or where progressives are getting their ideas about what Americans are thinking in their attempts to provide their vision of things and control the political narrative.
On gasoline prices our administration and even some on Fox news would have us believe that high gas prices are due to the evil oil speculators and money grubbing oil companies.
"Wednesday, April 25, 2012"
"The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows Mitt Romney earning 49% of the vote, while President Obama Attracts support from 44%. Three percent (3%) Would vote for a third party candidate, while another four percent (4%) are undecided."
This is not surprising but Gallop still shows Obumbler with a 50% approval rating what's going on here?
"44% Blame Government Regulations for Higher Gas Prices."
"Most Americans still believe the price of a gallon of gas could top $5 in the next few months, more think the government's to blame for the higher prices."
On one of the presidents favorite topics "fairness" and "decency or equality" the results are rather surprising considering how this topic is presented by Obumbler and the media whining constantly about how unfair and indecent America is.
"50% Think More Government Regulation Means Less Fairness"
"For some, the government is the answer to economic inequality in this country, but for most, it's not."
"Fifty percent (50%) of Likely Voters, in fact, think society would become less fair if the government got more involved in regulating the economy. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 22% believe society would become more fair if there was greater government regulation. Twenty-one percent (21%) feel things would remain about the same."
Obumbler is certainly speaking to a small audience with all his "fairness" rhetoric and demagoguery.
The 21% who feel things would remain about the same are not paying attention as we are already over-regulated in every aspect of our economy and lives.
"60% Rate U.S. Society as Fair and Decent."
"Most voters continue to believe in the goodness of America."
"A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds 60% of likely voters agree that American society is generally fair and decent. One-in-four voters (26%) disagrees and says society in this country in unfair and discriminatory. Fourteen percent (14%) are undecided.
Considering the claims of racism, unfairness, and inequality coming from the left one would expect different results.
It just goes to show how out of touch some people are when pushing their agenda.
Another issue pushed in our faces by Holder the Tool and others on the left are the voter ID laws enacted by several states and currently on the books of several others.
Their screams and cries of discrimination and racism of disenfranchising minorities and others is my opinion a joke.
Holder the Tool's law suits and blockages of these laws is a waste of tax payer money as well as making me think that the demoRat machine is so invested in voter fraud that they can not imagine an election without it.
There is no empirical data to support their claims.
So why all the ranting and screaming and law suits?
Every country around the world that holds elections requires an ID to vote except here.
"73% Think Photo ID Requirement Before Voting Does Not Discriminate."
"Despite his insistence that voter fraud is not a serious problem, Attorney General Eric Holder was embarrassed last week when a video surfaced of someone illegally obtaining a ballot to vote under Holder's name in his home in Washington, DC. Most voters consider voter fraud a problem in America today and continue to overwhelmingly support laws requiring people to show a photo identification before being allowed to vote."
"A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 64% of Likely Voters rate voter fraud at least a somewhat serious problem in the United States today, and just 24% disagree. This includes 35% who consider it a Very Serious problem and seven percent (7%) who view it as Not At All Serious. Twelve percent (12%) are undecided."
So it would seem that Obumbler, Holder, race-baiters like Jackson and Sharpton, and the progressive media are in the minority when it comes to trying to ensure fair elections.
Another of Obumbler's favorite topics is BIG GOVERNMENT.
He constantly praises the government as what made the country great, how we need government to protect us and keep us safe, how BIG GOVERNMENT is the answer to all our problems.
He forgets the government is an ineffective, inefficient, bloated machine that rarely gets ANYTHING CORRECT.
How about the newly released report by the government themselves that claims there is $400 BILLION in waste and duplication yet NO ONE in Washington is willing to actually address this FACT and Obumbler and his minions as usual think throwing more money at the problem is the answer.
I have news for them.
IT IS THE SPENDING THAT IS THE PROBLEM - TRULY FREE MARKETS (not crony capitalism) AND INDIVIDUAL INNOVATION MADE THIS COUNTRY GREAT NOT GOVERNMENT.
"Voters See Free Market, NOT GOVERNMENT, AS WHAT MADE AMERICA GREAT."
"President Obama recently has suggested that government investment is what made America great, but voters express a lot more confidence in the free enterprise system."
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 27% of Likely U.S. Voters agree government investments made America great. Forty-two percent (42%) disagree, but a sizable 32% are not sure."
Such a large group who are not sure shows in my opinion that the progressive influence in education is responsible for that and that their propaganda has been very dangerous to our youth past, present, and future.
Progressives on the left and Obumbler's administration try as they might have not yet convinced the American people that all their whining and bitching about the Republic is true.
I believe the attitudes expressed in these polls are some of the reasons Republicans swept to victory in 2010 "shellacking" of the progressive agenda.
Progressives are still in denial and from these polls there seems to always be a 20-something percent of those surveyed who continue to suck the kool-aid and believe the crap spewed by those who try and pervert the narrative through propaganda,misinformation and deceit in their favor.
