Elanor Clift seems to be overlooking that liberals like to inflate support statistics for their socialist policies to try to make it look like their policies are actually supported by the majority. After all, Obama had said that 90% of Americans were interested in gun control after the Senate had failed to pass its gun control legislation. But I think that 90% of Americans were either against or unconcerned about the legislation.

Also, the emphasis on a female president sidesteps the federal government’s constitutonally limited powers. In fact, one of the only powers that the feds have to regulate intrastate commerce is to regulate the US mail service, Clause 7 of Section 8 of Article I. In fact, the Founding States had arguably intended for presidents to be spending as much time on the golf course as Obama has to keep from getting bored if the country wasn’t fighing a war.

Argumentum ad populum.

From Wikipedia ...
A fallacious argument that concludes a proposition to be true because many or most people believe it. In other words, the basic idea of the argument is: “If many believe so, it is so.”

Westbrook adds ...
It is one of a class of arguments that are not based on facts and logic, but rather appeal to the emotions or baser instincts.

What’s worse is that Leftist vermin like Clift the hag and 0bama the Castro-wannabe mostly fabricate their own statistics or borrow them from the Leftist echo chamber that fabricates the statistics for them.
