|NBC/WSJ poll: 60 percent
say fire every
member of Congress
(But give Dems and Obama more power)
probably saw Throw
the bums out on Drudge. Given that it's an MSNBC story, I
wanted to see the polling questions (which you can find here).
It stops short of being a push-pull poll, but as you can see
were 44% Obama voters v. 35% Romney voters. So there's that.
Also in the mix of Drudge headlines today is GOP approval rating hits lowest point in Gallup poll history. What does that mean? The world of good versus evil is traditionally Republicans v Democrats, but that's now a distortion. If voting for a Republican will get me a George Bush instead of an Al Gore, or a John Kerry, it's no contest. But distinctions between the two parties, once in office, are small. I am Teaparty Republican, a distinction this poll seems to recognize (3)..
Adding then the very positive approval of Republicans (7) and Tea Party (9) results in 16-14 edge over the very positive Dem approvals). The numbers in (8) similarly give the Teaparty/GOP amalgam a 45-39% win over the Dems. Obama's 47% approval belies the numbers of other polls that show him at historical lows.
The other tables also speak for themselves here. I numbered them to make comments easier, if there are to be any. This poll exercise then is, per usual, nothing more than Democrat Media making news they can then spin into gold from the fecal matter they began with.
