Poll is about halfway down the right-hand side of the main page, just below the videos.
(Excerpt) Read more at cnn.com ...
Current results (yes, I know it's CNN):
Republicans: 55% - 61890
No difference: 28% - 31252
Democrats: 18% - 20167
Total votes: 113309
CNN’s polls, like MSNBC and the other MSM polls allow foreigners outside the US to vote too.
Outside the US, Obama’s approval rating is still at around 90%
Remember, this is a CNN poll. CNN = Communist News Network
Remember when Ted Turner owned all of it? Ted Turner? Oh you know the one who slept with Jane Fonda.
The DUmmies are hitting it hard.
Epoxy on both their houses...
You should post this again (sort of like how Obama did on Twitter) so there can be more exposure. So many commies outside the US like to tilt our polls.
The fact remains Obama/Pelosi can’t fix it.
Dems dont pay taxes.
14T/155 million that pay tax is 92,000 dollars owed by each of us. Nancy wants to add $9,000 dollars to this figure.
Our kids each owe $92,000. Nancy wants them to owe $101,000.00 , Even if they have yet to complete Kindergarten they owe this!
This debt does not take into account our annual tax obligations.
THERE IS NO MORE MONEY.
Life as Nancy knows and wants it - must end.
Balanced Budget- Flat Tax.
Which party is kicking and screaming to have the limit on their maxed out credit-card raised?
Blame? You mean credit right?
Unbelieveable! I knew CNN viewers were left leaning and stupid but this is really amazing.
That’s what I was going to say.
useless to participate....it’s rigged
As expected from CNN
Republicans 55% 63235
No difference 28% 31866
Democrats 18% 20663
Total votes: 115764
A poll like this is a symptom of, and a symbol of, what’s wrong with our politics and news reporting.
A question such as this is trying to assess blame for a problem. It does not allow for discussion of who is trying to solve the problem, or what the potential solutions to the problem are. It doesn’t even identify what the core issue is.
The Tea Party Republicans are trying to solve a much larger problem than just the problem of us hitting the debt ceiling. The MSM is blaming them for obstructionism. The MSM, in their tendency to over-simplify things and assess blame, is not reporting on the bigger picture. Just because we have routinely raised the debt ceiling in the past is being used as justification to do it now, and damn the consequences. And that’s not right, in my opinion.
Here is an example of how pathetic the whole media is. after fox spends all day playing clips of Reid an Obama blaming the republicans this blond bimbo talking head ask “why do you think so many people blame the republicans”. God help us all.
Hey I think Harris Faulkner said the Speaker has left the Capital....
A year from now Rush Limbaigh will probably be broadcasting from San Jose, Costa Rica. And with any luck I’ll be able to do odd jobs for him like mow his lawn, cut his toe nails... stuff like that. To survive.
