those two surprise me a little. i would have expected the katrina numbers to be way lower; he and the government botched that one big time. the scumbag even came in for a photo op on the buses the governemnt sent 4 days late.... and the economy is not bad, in fact we havent had numbers like these since about 1997. and yes that includes the clinton years.

Wow, those numbers are startling. I don't see how they can be possible right now. That said, this puts him almost as unfavorable as Chirac...nah, maybe not. I still think that those numbers seem really unusual right now.

A SeeBS poll?? LOL The prez numbers are down but the're still higher than SeeBS's believability numbers.

Ummm, so within their MOE, that leave the president with what, 39% approval? The difference?

Edit: The most ludicrous thing is that Hurricane Katrina has more favorable ratings then the economy, that's funny.

Skins13, there is absolutely no way this economy is in the same boat as in the 90's because it is a top fed gain, and the working class is getting laid off quite a bit. Funny, but I don't remember Ford/GM laying of 10,000+ people during the 90's.

Also, just going by GDP, and not recognizing the impact of increasing government is a sad way to look at the economy, thant god people realize this. Hell, I could grow the GDP by 10%, but it wouldn't be wise, because you have to pay back the money being wasted, it is false growth.

Was that really the question (Arabs)?

That question doesnt have a single correct point in it...

(And does the average American really know whats going on other than what the media is saying from 8pm - 10pm?)

Polls are leading questions popped onto strangers with instant knee jerk answers required.

AND such they are normally wrong...

Well if you really want to dog the man at least say:

Other than the Christian Right that wanted to do away with Abortion: check.

Other than the ones screaming for the War on Terror: check.

Other than the ones that didnt want embryonic stem cells: Check

Other than the ones that wanted the tax cuts: Check

Other than the ones that said step on the third rail that is Social Security: check

Other than the ones that said get in there so you can appoint 3 Justices if were lucky: Check

Killed the Kyoto Global Warming Treaty: check

Make permanent the $5,000 adoption tax credit and provide $1 billion over five years to increase the credit to $10,000.

Supports the Defense of Marriage Act — and a Constitutional amendment saying marriage is between one man and one woman

and some other stuff...

Lets not say he doesnt give a **** about anyone.. thats just wrong ;).

Even if the other 50% makes my eye twitch....

So in otherwords, religious people and rich people.

See Bear, I could have simplified your post in 2 quick lines. . .

Are you rich?: check

Are you religious?: check

That about sums it up. . .kind of like the 10 commandments can be don't steal, don't lie, don't hurt anyone.

That would be true but:

One: Im a single Dad in Alexandria, Va of 2 girls living month to month.

Two: I don't believe in God.

So other than that you were spot on....

(its quite amazing what two people see looking at the same thing.. And you wonder why cops have such a hard time with eye witnesses........)

No that wasn't the question.

The question was, "Should a UAE company operate U.S. ports?"

Yes, he certainly does care about the roughly 1/3 of the population that is on the extreme right of the political spectrum. It's just that he doesn't care particularly much about anyone else. Hence the poll numbers.

This poll is horse ****. There were nearly 50% more democrats polled than republicans. Debate ideology all you want, but this poll makes Dan Rather look fair and balanced.

CBS Slants Bush Poll in Favor of Democrats

Posted by Greg Sheffield on February 28, 2006 - 08:57.

In its classic "fair and balanced" tradition, CBS slanted in favor of Democrats its poll that found Bush has a 34 percent approval rating and a 59 percent disapproval rating, an all-time high for a CBS poll.

On the bottom of the PDF version of the poll (page 18) it says how many Democrats versus Republicans were contacted.

"Total Republicans" contacted: 272 unweighted and 289 weighted.

"Total Democrats" contacted: 409 unweighted and 381 weighted.

"Total Independents" contacted: 337 unweighted and 348 weighted.

Maybe now everyone will realize that you can get the answers you are looking for if the questions are framed correctly. That is why polls, "scientific" or otherwise are total BS...for both sides of the aisle.

Funny isn't it? People are making more money than they ever have in the history of this country, the average net worth of individuals is way higher, the stock market is near as high as it has ever been, but people still perceive the economy to be bad.

B/c the average American is spoon-fed his/her news by the media...it is very rare to see someone actually apply independent thought to the news they hear.

Although I must say...I am impressed by some people on this board who don't take everything they hear at face value.

Equally un-impressed by those individuals who do and then regurgitate what they hear in a thread!

The funny thing is, besides the BS polling of course, is that 20 years from now, when all of the wheels that this admin. set in motion have have a fair chance to roll ahead on the path this admin. paved for them, most unbiased, intellegent people will probably praise the job of this president. It happens all the time. Look at the numbers against some of our leaders while in office that our now seen as our best presidents. Besides Washington, every other highly regarded President in our history had huge numbers against them while in office.

These were the same polls that declared John Kerry the new President of the United States.

Wrong. Those were exit polls. These are conventional polls. There is a huge difference. Conventional polls accurately picked the winner of the 2004 election. Throughout the campaign, Bush had a 2-5 point lead in just about every poll. In the end, he won by, what, 2.5%? They were right all along, but you chose to highlight the one poll that was wrong as if that were the norm. :doh:

Republicans hate polls because they hate the truth. That is why they prefer a media that taylors the news to re-enforce their ideology.
