Rasmussen ^

Posted on 11/14/2012 9:58:27 AM PST by Arthurio

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 54% of Likely Voters at least somewhat approve of President Obama's job performance. Forty-five percent (45%) at least somewhat disapprove.

Obama’s overall approval ratings since Election Day have been at the highest levels since the early months of his presidency in 2009 (see trends).

Ninety-eight percent (98%) of black voters approve, while 56% of whites disapprove. Among voters of other races, 83% approve and 15% disapprove.

Huh? Who are these people and where did they come from? Mars?

Mr. Obama is now concerned about the deficit he created.

I smell another stimulus and more taxes so he can keep on spending.

Ugh!

At this rate we only have 44 day to go until Hussein hits 100% job approval.

Of what possible relevance is the polling on this issue at this time?

What difference does it make?

No one makes decisions based on this.

The national descent into insanity continues. I guess people think because Kim Jong Obama lied himself to re-election the nation’s problems are all fixed and behind us. I hope these people who approve of Obama are the first to get their lay off notices, their health insurance premium hikes and their notices from their employers that their health benefits are being discontinued because it will just be cheaper to pay the fine and let government insure them.

Rasmussen probably changed his sampling methodology, because of the suit against Gallup, and he missed the Presidential Election outcome....

Rasmussen, go hide your head in the sand.

This is the same discredited outfit that released this outrageous lie from what has all the traits of an agenda-driven push poll: 54% Are Pro-Choice, 38% Pro-Life.

Rasmussen is a Republican leaning pollster. One reason why he got it so wrong this election cycle is because he had Romney doing better than he really was.

This is the same discredited outfit that released this outrageous lie from what has all the traits of an agenda-driven push poll: 54% Are Pro-Choice, 38% Pro-Life.

The pro-life movement took it on the chin this past election cycle. Why is a poll showing a 54% majority of likely voters are pro choice a surprise? All around us the country is becoming more libertine - AND voting that way. We just lost the gay marriage fight in 4 states this cycle too.

Rasmussen was wrong because he didn't predict Obama and the forces of leftwing secular lunacy doing well enough in the elections. Sad, but true.

People love a WINNER, so they approve of him at the moment. Also, I suspect that Ras, having been wrong this election, is modifying his special sauce.

“Rasmussen is a Republican leaning pollster.”

Do you have anything to back this statement up? His polling was off this cycle, but that shows that his assumptions were wrong, not that he is “Republican leaning.”

Gallup over estimated Obama’s winning margin by 4% in 2008, and underestimated it by 3% in 2012. This is evidence of methodological errors, not political leanings.

Clearly, the Stockholm Syndrome has kicked in.

Those held in captivity to this dime-store knock-off of a Messiah have surrendered all critical thinking and self-esteem, while parroting his lines and being grateful he has not been even more arbitrary and conceited.

You said...

“People love a WINNER, so they approve of him at the moment”

It’s not uncommon for a president’s AR to rise after winning re-election

You call Rasmussen “discredited,” making a BOLD claim that abortion poll is an “outrageous lie” and don’t back it up. YOU might FEEL it’s a lie, but where’s your evidence to back your assertion it doesn’t reflect where Americans now are on the issue?

In my estimation, this poll (from Gallup) accurately measures the reality: Pro-Choice Americans at Record-Low 41%. As shown in their tracking chart, more than ever, the killers of God's innocent children are held in increasingly low regard:

Given that the Gallup organization is not particularly friendly to the Christian Conservative movement, I'd surmise that those favoring baby killers are actually lower than 41%. I'll also add that, like the term "gay" being co-opted by the homosexualists, the phrasing "pro-choice" doubtlessly skews the results in the favor of the evil abortionists and their well-financed lobby.

I’ve heard some Christian conservatives like Steve Deace say that these polls don’t necessarily reflect how people feel on legality or Roe vs. Wade but just if they would personally have an abortion or not. The wording of Gallup’s question is too vague to make a conclusion on that.

The huge swing back and forth in the last 3 years also perplexes me.

As the past election taught us (again), bare demographic numbers don’t spell the entire story of the influence of a movement.

What kind of silly charm is this, that 98% of the peeps are cheering Big Ears? Who right now has been doing a lot of nothing other than posturing and crowing about having won again.

If this were on the other foot lefties would be screaming “racism” from the rooftops.

If the statistic is accurate, then it follows as night follows day that the nation is, quite simply, doomed.

Perhaps even more perplexing is how 98% of Holder's people enthusiastically support those who engage in racial genocide:

"Since the number of current living Blacks (in the U.S.) is 36 million, the missing 16 million represents an enormous loss, for without abortion, America's Black community would now number 52 million persons. It would be 36 percent larger than it is. Abortion has swept through the Black community like a scythe, cutting down every fourth member." -- Michael Novak as cited by BlackGenocide.org.

Any sane community would be incensed at this, not defending it to the death.

"Ninety-eight percent (98%) of black voters approve..."

Hey Windy, what does it feel like being a 2%er?...

No different than any other day in my life, to tell you the truth. I got used to being the 'odd man out' a long, long time ago. Never did follow the herd, even when I was a kid.

Guess that's how I wound up here :-)

God bless your “oddness,” sir! Situations like yours show that what we call common sense can be an oxymoron. Sometimes almost everyone else IS committed to what is stupid. Honor, decency, self respect, all are things that ought to know no outward color at all. They ought to even be shared by green Martians if there were any Martians to be green. It ought to be obvious.

And of course, no outsider, and few insiders, can criticize such widespread fanaticism without being hooted at. There is nothing subhuman about any race. Why should a people group purposely seek to prove out the worst caricatures concocted by racists about them?

Again God bless you sir for not going along with the madness of crowds, of any color.
