Data From Skewed Polls Portray President Obama Unfairly; Media Buys It

The realistic portrayal of the history of this century would have to exclude the punditry heard on Sunday morning television.   Twenty-first century history, just a decade and a half old, is being rewritten right before our eyes.  I never believed history would be kind to GWB, but somehow they’ve pulled this miracle right from their collective pundit posteriors. The [...]

And The Survey Says: Bill Clinton Ranks As Most Intelligent President, George W. Bush The Least

According to YouGov, when it comes to American presidents, there is no direct correlation between getting a diploma from an Ivy League school and getting a reputation for being intelligent. The market research firm asked how intelligent each of the last eight elected presidents were, on a scale from “not at all intelligent” to “very intelligent” and [...]

PPP Poll: 37 Percent Of Mississippi Republicans Would Back Confederates In Civil War

It’s good to know that at least some Republicans in Mississippi live in the 21st Century. Not all, but at least some. The poll, obtained by TPM, is full of goodies for poll geeks. Of those polled, including Democrats and Republicans, 50 percent said they would support the United States while 29 percent said they [...]

Poll: 2/3 Of Republicans Support Impeaching Obama

The YouGov poll shows 1/3 of Americans support impeachment, and among Republicans, the number doubles. 61 percent of those polled believe Obama has abused his powers as president, but they differ on how they should be handled. 17 percent (of the total polled) say those abuses aren’t strong enough to warrant impeachment, 32 percent say [...]

Poll: Americans Have Had Enough Of Sarah Palin

An NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania poll shows that the American public believes Sarah Palin has jumped the shark, with 54% wishing she’d fade into the background. It’s not just Democrats clamoring for her to take more of a back seat — four in 10 Republicans agreed with [...]

My Take On That Stupid Poll Question

I wasn’t going to write about the media buzz surrounding the Quinnipiac poll question listing President Obama as the Worst President since World War II.  However, Matt Dickinson captured my thoughts effectively, so I thought it was worth reposting: Conservative pundits such as the Wall St. Journal’s Peggy Noonan continue to cite the recent Quinnipiac [...]

MSNBC Host Pimps ‘Worst President’ Poll Like Iceberg Slim’s Nerdy Cousin

On Wednesday, we explained why a Quinnipiac poll that deemed President Obama the Worst President Since World War II was five kinds of complete horseshit, and why cable news giant CNN were assholes for reporting so credulously on it, but as it turns out, someone at MSNBC missed the memo that they’re supposed to be in the [...]

Five Reasons Why That ‘Obama is the Worst President’ Poll is Total Horsesh*t

Yesterday, The Daily Banter‘s Tommy Christopher covered a new Quinnipiac Poll showing that a plurality of Americans believe that President Obama is the worst president since World War II. At the risk of sounding like an Obamabot (I’m not, but that won’t prevent trolls from going there), the poll is complete hooey and I don’t [...]

CNN Helps White Assholes Declare Obama Worst President

There’s a new poll out showing that President Obama is the Worst President Since World War II, a poll which CNN reported on with the not-even-skin-deep shallowness we’ve come to expect from the mainstream media. The Quinnipiac poll shows that Obama was rated worst by more respondents than any other president. At 33%, the President [...]

The United States Of Amnesia

Quinnipiac has results from a new poll that tells us that President Obama is the worst president in post-World War II history: President Barack Obama is the worst president since World War II, 33 percent of American voters say in a Quinnipiac University National Poll released today. Another 28 percent pick President George W. Bush. [...]
