MSNBC’s Obama poll does not include any choices for people who disagree with him

MSNBC just published this article titled “Obama keeps promise to young men of color.”

The article states:

President Obama is expected to launch his most focused efforts to address the dire prospects of young men of color this week, a demographic far too often swept into cycles of poverty and the school-to-prison pipeline.

Obama will unveil details of a new initiative called “My Brother’s Keeper” on Thursday, which will draw on partnerships with foundations and businesses to target young men of color across the country with a range of opportunities and strategies to help bolster their lives.

The article includes the following poll:


msnbc poll on obama


The poll asks the following question, and includes the following three options as an answer:

What are your expectations for Obama’s “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative?

It will make a difference.

Its success will depend on young men’s initiative.

Not sure.

All of those options are either positive or neutral.

There is no option for people who think that Obama’s proposal won’t do any good, or who think that it will cause more harm than good.

I thought MSNBC was going to change their "culture"
given their abysmal ratings and dropping viewership ?
Obviously NOT !!

I expect to see something like this in one of their future polls:


What is your opinion of Obama?

1) Love him

2) Like him

3) Admire him

4) Share his vision

5) All of the above

(from the article):" Obama will unveil details of a new initiative called “My Brother’s Keeper” on Thursday, which will draw on partnerships
with foundations and businesses to target young men of color across the country
with a range of opportunities and strategies to help bolster their lives.

Isn't this government endorsed program actually called "Racial profiling " ?

Follow the money. SEIU or some other gang of O’s sycophants will be put in charge of it; and most of the money will simply disappear.

I took a journalism class some years back and we were taught how to write a “poll” and how to sway the end results. The MSNBC poll in question here is a perfect example of one where the outcome was predicted.

That’s pretty much been how the press has treated him his whole political life. Just look at the presidential debates and how much each moderators helped him out. That cow Candy Crowly just happened to have an excerpt of Obama’s speech and Obama just happened to know she had it.

If the MSM got their way there would never be any mention of opposition to Dear Reader

That's been Obama's trend so far, so it makes sense to expect it to continue.

Well, the image is originally from MSNBC, so that’s who gets the “credit” for it.

Expectations...............another money laundering scam, pandering to the low information voters, extorting high paying jobs to a very few inexperienced young men of color thru affirmative action, now life time employees of a few pay to play corporations or else. Will it work? funny!

-——Follow the money. SEIU or some other gang of O’s sycophants will be put in charge of it; and most of the money will simply disappear.——

Yup...I pretty much have come to the conclusion that EVER obama initiative is a front for a money laundering scheme to fund progressive organizations...

If He really cared about black youth in this country...he would address the cultural issue that are disseminating the black community...but that would mean throwing all the victim / giverance / class warfare homies under the bus...
