Poll: 68% of Libs Still Approve of the Dear Ruler


I am not really much of a poll follower. I took a research methods course once, where the first half of the course covered writing actual poll questions, and the second part was learning to do statistical analysis on the accumulated raw data.
It did not take me very long to figure out how to manipulate and massage both processes to obtain certain results – if “desired” results was what you were after instead of “actual” results.
I learned there are other ways to manipulate “scientific” polls as well, such as sampling mostly areas that demographically are more likely to return the desired results. Every square inch of this country has been broken down demographically to Nth degree, and this data is readily available.
Even so, I do not always discount every poll that comes out, as not all pollsters are biased, and some are actually interested in obtaining accurate results.
Gallup just released a poll that caught my eye, as it suggests that 68% of America’s liberals still support Barack Obama.
Via CNSNews:
(CNSNews.com) – President Barack Obama’s job approval among liberals tied its all-time low in the Gallup poll last week, according to survey data released today.
In the seven-day period that ended on Sept. 18, only 68 percent of liberals told Gallup they approved of the way Obama was handling his job as president. The president’s job approval among liberals had previously dropped to 68 percent in the week that ended on Aug. 28. (However, it then rebounded slightly, rising to 71 percent in the week that ended on Sept. 4, before dropping to 69 percent in the week that ended on Sept. 11.)
As recently as the week that ended May 22, 2011, Obama’s approval in the Gallup poll had been at 81 percent among liberals.
Obama’s approval among liberals hit a high of 92 percent in the Gallup poll in the week that ended on May 10, 2009.
-End
So roughly 7 out of 10 liberals in America still think the Dear Ruler is doing a good job as president.
Okay, somebody has to say it, so it may as well be me.
Given the hideous damage that is currently being carried out on our America by the current occupant of the Oval Office, and if this polling data is anywhere close to accurate, can there be any doubt that liberalism truly is a mental disorder?

Duh. You can lie with statistics???? Wow, you must be the last person on earth to know this. Yes, Liberals still want Obama reelected considering the opposition. The GOP can’t run any of their decent people because the T baggers sign on to stupid pledges which makes doing their jobs impossible. We don’t want a ‘president’ who has made up his/her mind before learning the facts and that is what these hopefuls have done. It is the most undemocratic thing an elected official can do. They pledge to stand in the way of any progress in this country. They pledge… Read more »

HA reports this: there are now four separate federal investigations into the company ongoing. Count ‘em: (1) The FBI’s been probing in conjunction with the Department of Energy; (2) the Treasury Department launched its own inquiry just a few days ago; (3) the House Energy and Commerce Committee is the body that’s been negotiating with Solyndra execs to appear before it and testify; and (4) earlier today Darrell Issa said his House Oversight Committee would start looking into the matter.
Skippy and execs can run but going to be pretty hard to hide from all of ’em!

Steve, check out HA. Issa has some strong words about Holder & now 200 deaths (or more) linked to F&F. The LSM cannot ignore this for much longer. It’s bad..,
