NBC/WSJ Poll: Obama Seems More Bipartisan Than GOP
NBC/WSJ ^ | 2-26

Posted on 02/26/2013 11:52:14 AM PST by ExxonPatrolUs

President Barack Obama approaches Friday's budget deadline with a far stronger reputation than Republicans for seeking bipartisan unity, a new NBC News-Wall Street Journal poll has found.

The survey shows that 48 percent of Americans credit Obama with emphasizing unifying themes, compared with 43 percent who sayhe takes a partisan approach "that does not unify the country." By contrast, Americans by 3-1 say the Republican Party takes a partisan approach (64 percent) rather than a unifying one (22 percent).

A 49 percent plurality of Americans said the Democratic Party takes a partisan approach, outpacing the 37 percent who said Democrats emphasize unity. But the recently re-elected president's superior ability to attract attention to his message gives his party the edge in casting its approach to Friday's budget "sequester" as one that aims at compromise.

Stuff your poll, NBC/WSJ. Obviously the TRUTH doesn't matter to you, what matters are the results of your push-polls.

But if you were interested what the TRUTH is, that by his past words and actions Obama is a leftwing partisan slug extreeemist.

Why? It is a poll. Ignoring reality brought us unskewed polls. We need to figure out how to change the message not ignore the poll because we do not like the organization. Remember only looking at Rasmussen we took back the senate and the whitehouse. Oops.

A certain segment of the population has a problem distinguishing between “capitulation” and “compromising”, probably because they can’t pronounce either.

Hysterical. If two parties don't agree on anything ... hence NEITHER is 'bipartisan' ... how on earth can EITHER one be 'more' bipartisan.

0 = 0. State-run media push poll FAIL!

maybe, but they were much better than “conservative” pollster the last election ... by far. Sticking our head in the sand didn’t work in 2012 and it won’t work now. THIS is what people think. They ARE going to blame the GOP and hard. Pretending it isn’t true doesn’t make it any less true. I may not like it one bit, but I am not the least bit surprised.

As long as you have zombie drones who don’t have a brain cell in their head and people collecting handout after handout this country is screwed. The state controlled media is doing Obama’s bidding and unfortunately they are doing one heck of a job. Idiots who can’t think for themselves and repeat the talking points of the press while collecting food stamps and welfare checks is what Obama is counting on

The New American sheeple... opining as directed. Question not the motives of your dear leader, serfs. Your role is to smile and stare blankly, nod and bow in praise at the sound of His voice and the mention of His Holy Name.

The comments are at least a bit refreshing. A significant majority of those comments are AGAINST Obama.

The same holds true on other sites.

Places like Yahoo, more and more comments are negative towards El Presidente. In fact the MAJORITY are against him.

It would be understandable from a site such as this. But sites like Yahoo (who themselves are quite liberal) have a mixed community. And yet the comments are against Zero.

Clearly Obama is far from bipartisan, with one glaring example being the passage of Obamacare over the wishes of a clear majority.

On the other hand, even the primary tenet of the poll itself is a “push”. Why is being “bipartisan” a good thing?

The sole purpose of these polls is for the MSM to gauge the effectiveness of their propaganda efforts.

48% of Americans are got damned fools. Those are the same fools who elected this Hybrid, racist, Muslim.

Bi-partisan WTF?? that 48% is even crazier than even I imagined.

We in this country do not have to worry about Obaam we have to worry about the 48% of idiots that support the worst thing ever to happen to this country in 250 years.

Guess what? Obama won by 4 points! So I guess the propaganda machine is doing just fine. So with that said I am back to my original question. Lets face or problems and figure out how to change the message.
