Barring a major fark up, this trend may well continue for a while, as the GOP's angry voter base slowly fades away under the oncoming demographic wave.

FTFA: Similarly, 87 percent of liberals and 68 percent of moderates view the president positively, dropping to 34 percent of conservatives overall and just a quarter of strong conservatives.

Those, I think would be the interesting people to talk to.

I have been a registered voter for 40 years and voted independent the whole time. Never once have i been polled yet lived in 5 different states. Who do these polling companies poll and where??


I'll bet I could get any results I wanted by narrowing my poll to a certain area code in a area favorable to the results I wanted.


When you own the media, you own the message, the polls, people's opinions...this is a farce and America knows it.

In related news, StopArrestingMe is now apparenetly posting in Arizona newspapers:

You doubters need to listen to Lieutenant Zullo, Commander of the MCSO Cold Case Pussy. Listen to his total interview. The NSA is tapping his extremely sensitive phone calls. It would have to be a BIG deal for Obama to divert the NSA from trying to find terrorists and terrorist supporting states. Well, it is a BIG deal because Obama is totally scared of the latest tact of this criminal investigation. In 1958 and continuing through 1964, Kenya required that within one hour of birth, every male child be circumcised and also to have the Kenyan National Flag tattooed on their genitals. The election distraction caused Obama's cell phone number to be inadvertently given out. Zullo, being the workaholic he is, was able to hack into Obama's phone number and listen into his calls. He heard Obama requesting an urgent appointment with a laser tattoo removal service and mentioned something about a flag tattoo that he needed removed before it was seen. At this point the government realized that Zullo was hot on Obama's tail and they started listening into his phone calls.


Recognizing the potential destruction of evidence and the intent to obstruct justice (two more felonies), Lieutenant Zullo has requested a Sheriff's subpoena that will compel production of the Executive genitalia. Zullo further notes that Sheriff Arpaio is no longer going alone on this law enforcement investigation of the birth certificate. Sheriff Paul Babeu has enthusiastically joined this investigation as a direct result of Zullo's hard work, firm work ethic, erect attention to detail, and stiff upper lip in fleshing out this new evidence of a Kenyan birth. This will break this case wide open with total proof of Kenyan citizenship.

I think maybe the whole FUD thing has just finally worn out its welcome even with the far right at this point more than Obama has done something clever or especially bold/exceptional.

I mean, technically "give them plenty of rope, they'll hang themselves within a week" is technically a strategy, and it served him well on the campaign trail, but really the active agency behind the change in perception is the GOP itself destroying its own ethos.

Perhaps more than anything else, this result should make crystal clear to right-wingers that what they consider 'conservative' is not what many consider conservative. So, when the right-wingers point to polls that show a majority of the country consider themselves 'conservative', they should remember that 34 percent of those people who consider themselves conservative also have a positive view of Obama.

Isn't that about the same percentage of people who approved of Bush in the final months of his office? Yet more proof that about a quarter of people are just dysfunctional/retarded.

50.7%, to be accurate.

Obama got nearly 4 million more votes in 2012 than GWB did in 2004.

If 0.7% above 50% is a mandate, then Obama's got 57.1% more of a mandate than GWB did.

Sweet!

Not to mention that Obama's popular vote tally was undoubtedly depressed by the lowered voter turnout in both New York and New Jersey due to the hurricane, states that he won by double digits (seriously, go look at the decline in the 2012 vote totals in NY and NJ compared to 2008).

His actual percentage of the vote was probably closer to 52%.

From a quick looks it appears that they over sampled people with a favorable opinion of Obama by approximately 20% at the lower end and 30% at the higher end. The real results are closer to

57 percent of liberals
38 percent of moderates
14 percent of conservatives overall
5 of strong conservatives.

No. MSTD makes much more sense in even his most opaque posts. After you clear out his language usage (which generally has me rolling on the floor) there is something interesting underneath. Birthers... never make sense. MSTD also uses satire and sarcasm. Birthers... can't. They aren't equiped for it.
