Obama Approval Rating
March 31, 2011 by USA Post
Do not distract the Beltway press, not to mention the blogosphere right, because they are still obsessed with poll yesterday had Obama Quinnipiac down to a rating of 42 percent. These results, as we have noted, were immediately called to be very important.
It is true that the Quinnipiac poll does not look like many other results of the survey reputable published this month. And it is true almost all the other polls as Obama’s rating in March found hovering around the 50 per cent. But it did not matter. The results were new Quinnipiac AP and years are not. Why? Because good news for Obama is not really new.
So shhh, please do not wake up the press and with disturbing news about the latest discovery AP. Please do not interrupt their fascination with the finding of 42 percent approval when a new poll has Obama over ten points higher than that.
And how the press does not focus on the strong approval ratings for Obama? So bad that even the AP lede buried in reports on its own poll:
Americans are increasingly pessimistic about the economy and soaring gas costs strain already tight budgets. But people do not go after Barack Obama, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll.
In the survey, 15 percent of Americans said they believed the economy has improved over the past month, down from percent that believed that in January. Only a third were optimistic about the country, against about half earlier this year. And 28 percent believe the economy will deteriorate, because it is most of those who expressed this sentiment since the question was asked in December 2009.
In the AP-GfK survey in the last month, the odds of Obama remained stable at around 50 percent.
The AP cannot even bother to clarify Obama’s rating in the latest AP poll. (It is 53 percent. But the AP goes with “about 50 percent.”) And no, it’s not even the lede. Instead, acidification of Americans on the economy is the lede.
But I guarantee you that if the AP poll approval ratings of President fall to 42 percent, how did Quinnipiac poll, the AP would hype in the title and the AP poll is making headlines today.
