Skip to comments.Shocking Finding for Dems in WaPo Poll
Posted on 04/29/2014 12:46:36 PM PDT by Kaslin
RUSH: There's an ABC News/Washington Post poll out today, very, very bad for Obama. You know what that means? I'll tell you what it means: The poll numbers are so bad in this ABC poll, the White House is furiously calling every late-night comedy show trying to book Obama so they can get his numbers back up. That's what it means.
I wonder if they'll go back to Between the Ferns like they did to supposedly miraculously save Obamacare. Now, here it is: "ABC News/Washington Post Poll Shows Democrats At Risk In November As Obamas Approval Rating Falls." I think it's 41% in this poll. It's as low as it's ever been. Now, it's mentioned in the lead -- let me read the lead to you here.
Folks, I am still fighting the ravages of this stupid crackpot common cold virus, and I just can't shake this. I was telling the chef today --you'll remember this, Snerdley -- back in the chocolate doughnut days, I had a cold for six months back in the nineties, and I ended up having to go on a Caribbean cruise for two weeks and not say a word in order to order to get rid of it. I'm not kidding. Panama Canal cruise. As I'm going through the Panama Canal I had to listen some environmentalist wacko preach to me about how if we destroy the jungle, meaning the Amazon, that we destroy the world and so forth. I couldn't escape it even then. But I mean we're going on a month with this, so I'm just mentioning it in case I miss the cough button a couple times. I apologize in advance.
Here's the Washington Post lead on the poll story: "Democrats face serious obstacles as they look to the November elections, with President Obamas approval rating at a new low and a majority of voters saying they prefer a Congress in Republican hands to check the presidents agenda."
This is the Drive-By Media. This is state-controlled ABC/Washington Post saying that they've got a poll that says Obama's numbers are at a new low and a majority of voters say they want a Republican Congress to keep Obama in check. So they mention it in the lead, but then they bury that in the rest of the article. I'm gonna tell you, I want to emphasize this because it's the most shocking finding in this poll, and I doubt you're gonna see it mentioned in places in the Drive-Bys. You'll hear 'em talk about the approval number and what it means for Obama. And I'll tell you what it means is they're gonna have to find some late-night comedy show to put him on in order to bring the numbers back up.
But this is, I think, the most shocking finding in the poll. "Another measure..." Right there. "Another measure of voting intentions came when people were asked whether they thought it was more important to have Democrats in charge in Congress to help support Obama's policies or Republicans in charge to act as a check on the [Obama]'s policies.
"On this, [a whopping] 53% of voters," in the Drive-By Media poll, "say Republicans" should be in charge of Congress to stop Obama, "and 39% say Democrats. That is almost identical to the results of the same question when it was asked in September 2010, two months before the GOP landslide." It's almost identical.
The number is almost identical to the same question in the same poll before the 2010 midterms. This means the Democrats and Obama are really gonna have to ramp up the racism and the class warfare now to try to overcome this. That's all they've got. They don't have Obamacare. They don't have one single Obama policy they can point to, with pride, and say, "Reelect Democrats to keep this going!"
It's just the exact opposite. This ABC News/Washington Post poll says elect Republicans to stop this. And I'm here to tell you, if the number reported is 53%, it probably is a little higher than that. So there is panic.
Guess the dog figures it has nine lives?
Likely voters are gonna kill.
Never, ever underestimate the ability of the Stupid Party to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
I vote staged, with you!
Hick? ... Move is to the right ... TNT ... scares those rats ... Blow the ship ... Blow the Ship!!!
Between The Ferns, Behind The Ferns ,Over, Under, in Front of The Ferns...
Barack & his Gang of Czars can go through all the prepositions for all the potemkin village shows they want to, but come November, the toilets are going to be a-flush with Dessicated, Dirty Dems!
Hi nsa and with-holder!
This was a D+11 poll- D32 R21 I38.The 2012 final results were D+6. D38 R32 I29. This shows that the Dems are in more trouble than the poll shows.
Ringing Right? Let the rats be told the truth Americans. Give that 41% something to think about?
Uh huh - sure...
yes, no other choice ... we can all choose that Highway to Hell.
Yep. It’s way early in the cycle.
ElRushbo is apparently not alone in hoping he fails...
Shitlery will be the next _resident. Stick a fork in Amerika.
.......not quite, if it’s an ABC poll and it says 53% an honest poll would likely say 57-59%..........
I’m reading in certain states that anger at Dims is so palpable across the political spectrum that all statewide offices, let me repeat ALL, will go to the pubs right down to dog catcher.
“...come November, the toilets are going to be a-flush with Dessicated, Dirty Dems.”
Nice thought, but in the face of information that portends doom for them, they just might pull out all the stops and get their ephemeral illusory electorate engaged at the polls. :-)
Guess your numbers mean they are over-sampling D`s
to even get it that good.
That is my exact point. If the poll had been conducted fairly, that arrogant pos occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave would have a much lower Approval rating then 42 percent which is still at least 10 percent to high
Don’t they always oversample the rats?
in crunch time ALL the pollsters will be with the Dems
I take it you disagree.....Yep when it comes down to 2016 all , I repeat ALL the pollsters will be with the dems, and you can include Rasmussen with that bunch as well as Fox
Fox has had the wool pulled over it`s eyes for years by various pollsters.
There is ZERO science in partisan political polling, the entire methodology is unscientific and ridiculous,
The polls become reality only after they are published
