    Obama's only goal as pres is to keep his poll numbers high and everything he says is geared to that so it's no big surprise. Nero fiddles a pretty tune as Rome burns.

    That's all well and good except for the fact that Obama's numbers aren't going up. In fact they are headed the other direction, and have been all year except for a small stretch in April.

    The Faux news poll skews the results.

    You need some sort of shred of evidence of something before you accuse someone of something.

    So does the CNN poll and the Pew Research poll. That's why the Real Clear Politics poll is good, it takes all the polls and takes their average.

The average is dragged down by three recent polls from Rasmussen, Fox News, and The Economist/YouGov, which show him below water on favorability by 2, 6, and 5 percentage points respectively.

    So this is liberal reality? Three polls show Obama's popularity waning and one shows it gaining. This shows poll numbers holding up?

    According to the poll, conducted from May 22-May 28 among 1,419 registered voters, 45 percent approve of Mr. Obama's job performance, and 49 percent disapprove. In a Quinnipiac poll published May 1, 48 percent of registered voters approved of the president's performance, and 45 percent disapproved.
    Obama's Approval Ratings Drop Amid Scandals - Reason 24/7 : Reason.com

    President Barack Obama gets a negative 45 - 49 percent job approval rating, compared to 48 - 45 percent positive in a May 1 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University, conducted before the IRS allegations surfaced.

    The president's biggest drop is among independent voters, who give him a negative 37 - 57 percent score, compared to a negative 42 - 48 percent May 1. He gets a negative 9 - 86 percent from Republicans and a positive 87 - 8 percent from Democrats, both virtually unchanged. Women approve 49 - 45 percent while men give a negative 40 - 54 percent score.

    Americans are divided 49 - 47 percent on whether Obama is honest and trustworthy, down from 58 - 37 percent, the last time Quinnipiac University asked the question September 1, 2011.

    What did Obama reply when they asked when he found out about the IRS targeting Tea Party organizations?
