Latest Wank Poll

David Gregory, Eric Alterman, and Keith Olberman need more lotion.

Why should I care about the latest opinion poll of a lame-duck president?

Just wondering. Cuz, Bush isn't running again, and it's nearly impossible for congressional incumbents to lose.

If the Democrats thought jihadists were more of a threat than Republicans, hell, I might vote for one. It wouldn't be the first time.

If you read my blog regularly - hey, it's like a membership at Augusta National in terms of exclusivity - you'll know I think polls are not worth the calories used to create them.

Shocka (/sarc), the most basic rule of political polling was broken (hat tip: PJM) AGAIN.

Total Respondents 1018

Total Republicans 272 27%

Total Democrats 409 40%

Total Independents 337 33%

WEIGHTED

Total Respondents 1018

Total Republicans 289 28%

Total Democrats 381 37%

Total Independents 348 34%


Part of me hopes the Democrats continue to believe their push polling, but the other part of me wants a healthy two-party system.

Polling no longer has anything to do with MEASURING opinion.

Rasmussen shows him at 43% a little drop but what do you expect after a week of doom and gloom about our ports being sold to the UAE and a two weeks of Cheney being on a shooting spree.

At least he shot a lawyer. That must help the numbers.
