    Gallup: Gop congress more popular than obama

    Not soon after his media-enabled reelection, when President Obama's poll numbers almost immediately began to crater, the media narrative shifted to the steady drumbeat of, "But the approval rating for Congress is much lower." That spin was obviously directed at Republicans, who controlled Congress. Although "congress" can mean both the Democrat-controlled Senate and the House, this was a nifty rhetorical trick the media used to argue that the GOP was in worse shape than Obama.



    That lie was not only laid bare in last week's midterm elections, where Republicans at every level of government crushed Democrats (and their media cheerleaders) in a tidal wave that hit blue and purple states, but also in new polling numbers from Gallup that shows GOP lawmakers currently enjoy a higher approval rating from the American people than President Obama.

    You know your Presidency is a disaster when people like those blithering idiots in Congress more than you.

    It seems the American people and the media gave Obama and the Left an extended trial run to get things right in this country. But, patience is fleeting.

    #1. There is no 'democrat' party.

    #2. I don't know what the Democratic Party thinks, but I believe that if the GOP doesn't do anything about America's immigration problems it will be in big trouble in future elections.

    Don't take my word for this, just wait and see. November, 2016 will be here before you know it.

    Keep this handy.

    There no less than 16,000 claims that this vote is not even about Obama that support for congress is at an "historical low."

    The above is Post of the Month material.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    I get dibs on the first troll to respond with "Gallup is a right wing" whatever. Ten bucks says this thread doesn't get to two pages before there isn't some form of dismissal based on some kind of slant
