    What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls

    It looks as though the American people are not too happy about "Hope & Change", as the polls are indicating. What's funny here is, it won't stop Pelosi and Reid from pushing their very unpopular agenda, because they still think they know whats best for America.


    What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls
    Saturday, September 26, 2009

    Few nations are as generous with their time and money as the United States, but right now Americans are a suspicious bunch.

    Sixty-six percent (66%) of voters nationwide say they’re at least somewhat angry about the current policies of the federal government. Thirty-six percent (36%) are Very Angry.
    Despite the high level of political anger last year that helped fuel President Obama’s election, 59% say the current level of political anger in the country is higher than it was when George W. Bush was president.

    A lot of that anger is directed at the people who are spending billions and billion of dollars of taxpayer money. That helps explain why members of Congress have now surpassed corporate CEOs to hold the least favorably regarded profession in the country.

    Just 16% of voters give Congress good or excellent ratings now that it's back from a rough-and-tumble August recess. That’s down seven points from its highest rating of 2009, reached in late May. Fifty-three (53%) percent say Congress is doing a poor job.

    Obama’s Approval Index ratings remain in negative territory as well in the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll.

    I really thought the American public throwing the Obama agenda overboard would prompt a discussion...

    I guess even the left has now accepted this fact, along with the rest of us.

    Why are people mad if Obama said he was going to spend billions of dollars?

    The gallup says Obama's approval rating is 51% so what's the big deal again? Why wouldn't Pelosi and Reid push their agenda if people like a president who's also very democratic?

    Um, because a party is not a person?

    Just because someone approves of Obama doesn't mean that they have to approve of Reid or Pelosi.

    I have a question for you: What makes you think that a disapproval of Congress translates into a disapproval of Democratic policies? The American people are perpetually angry at Congress. The institution has received approval ratings comparable to anthrax for well over a decade (probably longer).

    Presumably, some of those people who disapprove of Congress are A) mad at the REPUBLICANS in Congress, B) mad at the Democrats in Congress for giving in too much and/or not fighting for whatever issue, C) mad at no one or no policies in particular. Congress' approval rating is a meaningless statistic, as it is not a monolithic entity and no one votes for the ENTIRE Congress anyway.

    I hate to break it to you but people in the same party generally believe in pretty much the same thing. Besides, if people approve Obama's policies they will approve of Pelosi's and Reid's too probably, why wouldn't they?

    Oh, my bad. The polls actually mean that Obama and the Democrats are winning the hearts and minds of America's independents. Sure, that's not what the polls indicate, but hey - it sure sounds good?

    Who said anything about Independents? Last time I checked the only thing that matters in elections is the majority and Obama has that.
