50% Now View Biden Favorably (Barf Alert)
The Financial ^ | January 24, 2011 | Staff

Posted on 01/24/2011 4:52:31 PM PST by Suvroc10

Historically speaking, being vice president has generally been a thankless but not too demanding job. Joe Biden, unlike his predecessor Dick Cheney, seems to be following this more traditional model, and voters are viewing him slightly more favorably these days.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters now hold at least a somewhat favorable opinion of Biden, including 17% with a Very Favorable view of him. Forty-four percent (44%) regard the former longtime Delaware senator unfavorably, with 23% Very Unfavorable.

Strange how the murders of 6 innocent Americans can really give the ‘RATs’ poll numbers a big boot in the @$$. You’re a sick country America.

Biden’s the comic relief. People tend to view anybody favorably who makes them laugh.

Most of our population is obsessed with “Dancing with the Stars” and “Jersey Shore.” So, the multimedia Obama/Biden team are popular ... for those that can’t or refuse to think.

Clinton had this down pat. A rapist, impeached for lying under oath, selling weapons systems to China, a wife who likely had people murdered, etc, etc. But the press loved him and the majority of dunces still like the guy.

There is NOTHING that Obama/Biden can do NOT to get re-elected.

Some Americans are back to drinking the Obama Koolaid. Hey dopes, just because some leftist lunatic shot up a supermarket parking lot in Tuscon doesn’t suddenly make Obumbles a good president, or Joe Biden sane. Pull your heads out idiots.

Makes sense. It’s the theory of political relativity. Since Obama has gone from Messiah to “OMG! Is THAT who I voted for???,” “Bite Me” Joe in comparison gets a “Hey! He’s not so bad!” reaction.

Nah, too much pride for that. Please disregard my last transmission.

They have to boost up Biden. You’re not going to impeach the messiah if his prophet is a moron that everyone hates.

The Obama administration in general is on a large upswing in the polls thanks to stepped up MSM cheer leading tied to taking advantage of the Arizona shooting spree.

Sadly, Laughner’s assassination attempt gave the mainstream media a way to put the GOP on the defensive, and Republican went along with it without a fight. They are even playing huggy-kissy date night with the Dems for the SOTU. They should not even be acknowledging this stupid notion that the tone of the debate needs to change. Political rhetoric had zero to do with the killings in Arizona, so why are the GOP essentially conceding that it did?

So Obama got to stay “above it all” and be President healer-in-chief which helped him a lot. Additionally, people who should know better have been slobbering over Obama of late. It is almost impossible to watch Fox lately as they all think Obama’s speech was the epitome of wonderfulness. Lately I can’t tell the difference between Fox and MSNBC.

This is important if they want him to assume the presidency when the B.C. issue blows.

Forty-four percent (44%) regard the former longtime Delaware senator unfavorably, with 23% Very Unfavorable.

..so how does the remaining 23% add up to be 50%?

It's pretty bad when the Regime has this country so effed up, Biden can pull a 50% favorable rating just by keeping his mouth shut. We are in a world of hurt.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

It just means they don't hate him.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters now hold at least a somewhat favorable opinion of Biden, including 17% with a Very Favorable view of him. Forty-four percent (44%) regard the former longtime Delaware senator unfavorably, with 23% Very Unfavorable.

50% favorable + very favorable and 44% unfavorable + very unfavorable. 17% very favorable and 23% very unfavorable. More people have a strong negative reaction to him than a positive one.

That leaves 33% just favorable and 21% just unfavorable and 6% undecided. More of the people who dislike Biden feel strongly about it and fewer of the people who like him feel any great enthusiasm for the man.

Not great numbers for somebody who doesn't really do anything. When you consider how many people aren't interested in politics at all, Biden's not that popular.

Double emergency backup plan for the birth certificate flap.

I bought something from someone off Craig's List today. In speaking with them while closing the deal, it was discovered she worked for the department of homeland security. Being stoopid, I came right out with an inquiry over if anyone there has had any success finding out where our president was born?

For about ten seconds, very long at that, remained dead silence(sorry can't say dead, it was a muted silence) the person smiled and genuinely bantered on and on about what a crock of $hit it is that the whole thing is. It was a big topic of chat in their office today.

Homeland security workers have to go thru the background grist mill to work there. They resent the story that's being offered.

I personally think Biden is pretty good as a comic. Really, its like watching Foghorn Leghorn or a SNL skit.
