    Low favorables: Dems rip Rasmussen

    Democrats are turning their fire on Scott Rasmussen, the prolific independent pollster whose surveys on elections, President Obama’s popularity and a host of other issues are surfacing in the media with increasing frequency.

    The pointed attacks reflect a hardening conventional wisdom among prominent liberal bloggers and many Democrats that Rasmussen Reports polls are, at best, the result of a flawed polling model and, at worst, designed to undermine Democratic politicians and the party’s national agenda.

    On progressive-oriented websites, anti-Rasmussen sentiment is an article of faith. “Rasmussen Caught With Their Thumb on the Scale,” blared the Daily Kos this summer. “Rasmussen Reports, You Decide,” the blog Swing State Project recently headlined in a play on the Fox News motto.

    “I don’t think there are Republican polling firms that get as good a result as Rasmussen does,” said Eric Boehlert, a senior fellow with Media Matters, a progressive research center. “His data looks like it all comes out of the RNC [Republican National Committee].”

    “Whether intended or not, Rasmussen polls have been used by conservative voices as talking points, and when that happens on one side it inevitably produces a reaction from the other,” explained Mark Blumenthal, a polling analyst and the editor and publisher of Pollster.com. “Rasmussen produces a lot of data that appear to produce narratives conservatives are promoting, and that causes a reaction.”

    While Scott Rasmussen, the firm’s president, contends that he has no ax to grind — his bio notes that he has been “an independent pollster for more than a decade” and “has never been a campaign pollster or consultant for candidates seeking office” — his opponents on the left insist he is the hand that feeds conservative talkers a daily trove of negative numbers that provides grist for attacks on Obama and the Democratic Party.

    Nothing, however, sets off liberal teeth gnashing more than Rasmussen’s daily presidential tracking polls, which throughout the year have consistently placed Obama’s approval numbers around 5 percentage points lower than other polling outfits.

    “He polls less favorably for Democrats, and that’s why he’s become a lightning rod,” said Charles Franklin, a University of Wisconsin political scientist who studies polling. “It’s clear that his results are typically more Republican than the other person’s results.”

    On Saturday, Dec. 26, for example, Rasmussen’s daily tracking had Obama’s approval at 44 percent, with a disapproval figure of 56 percent. A Real Clear Politics compilation of other pollsters, meanwhile, showed Obama with an average approval figure of 49.5 percent and disapproval of 45.1 percent.

    “He’s been underpolling Obama all year,” said Boehlert. “People start thinking, ‘There’s something going on here.’”

    It’s not just the data that Rasmussen’s critics object to — they also have a problem with the way the firm frames questions in its automated polls, which are the staple of its work.

    In August, for example, Rasmussen asked respondents whether they agreed or disagreed with the statement “It’s always better to cut taxes than to increase government spending because taxpayers, not bureaucrats, are the best judges of how to spend their money.”

    “Why stop there, Rasmussen? Why not add a parenthetical phrase about how tax cuts regrow hair, whiten teeth, and ensure that your favorite team will win the Super Bowl this year?” responded Daily Kos blogger Steve Singiser, who frequently writes about polls.

    Democratic pollster Mark Mellman believes Rasmussen designs its polling questions to elicit negative responses about Obama and Democrats — a sentiment that is widely shared in the liberal blogosphere.

    “I think they write their questions in a way that supports a conservative interpretation of the world,” said Mellman. “In general, they tend to be among the worst polls for Democrats, and they phrase questions in ways that elicit less support for the Democratic point of view.”

    Democratic politicians seem equally leery of Rasmussen polling: At a news conference just prior to the 2008 election, when asked about a poll showing GOP Sen. John Sununu moving ahead of eventual Democratic winner Jeanne Shaheen, then-Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Chairman Chuck Schumer had a ready answer.

    “Yeah, that was a Rasmussen poll,” said a dismissive Schumer.

    In an interview, Rasmussen adamantly denied that he is framing his polling to appeal to a conservative audience, saying: “We certainly don’t see it that way.”

    “It’s the adage that if you don’t like the message, shoot the messenger,” he added.

    Rasmussen is quick to point out the accuracy of his surveys — noting how close his firm was to predicting the final outcome in this fall’s New Jersey governor’s race. (Rasmussen’s final survey in the race showed Republican Chris Christie edging out Gov. Jon Corzine 46 percent to 43 percent. Christie beat Corzine 48 percent to 45 percent on Election Day.) And he argues that he was among the first pollsters to show Obama narrowing the gap with Hillary Clinton in the 2008 Democratic presidential primary.

    Last year, the progressive website FiveThirtyEight.com’s pollster ratings, based on the 2008 presidential primaries, awarded Rasmussen the third-highest mark for its accuracy in predicting the outcome of the contests. And Rasmussen’s final poll of the 2008 general election — showing Obama defeating Arizona Sen. John McCain 52 percent to 46 percent — closely mirrored the election’s outcome.

    Rasmussen, for his part, explained that his numbers are trending Republican simply because he is screening for only those voters most likely to head to the polls — a pool of respondents, he argues, that just so happens to bend more conservative this election cycle.

    Polling all adults — a method used by Gallup, another polling firm that conducts a daily tracking poll of Obama — Rasmussen acknowledged, is “always going to yield a better result for Democrats.”

    But critics note that the practice of screening for only those voters regarded as most likely to head to the polls potentially weeds out younger and minority voters — who would be more likely to favor Democrats than Republicans.

    Alan Abramowitz, an Emory University political scientist, said there was “huge concern right now” that Rasmussen was polling a universe of largely conservative-minded voters.

    “How is Rasmussen selecting likely voters almost a year before the election? And why would you even screen for likely voters in measuring presidential approval?” said Abramowitz. “My guess is that it's heavily skewed toward older, white, Republican voters.”

    Others assert Rasmussen is simply reflecting a more GOP-friendly political environment in his polling.

    “The way he does polls is that he’s more likely to get high-energy voters,” said Tom Jensen, a pollster for the North Carolina-based Democratic firm Public Policy Polling. “I think Rasmussen favors Republicans this year, but I don’t think he inherently favors Republicans.”

    “If I’m looking at public polls that are ABC News, CBS, Quinnipiac, Rasmussen, I’m paying attention to Rasmussen,” said GOP pollster Tony Fabrizio. “As a pollster, I’d much rather look at a pollster who is looking at likely voters than a pollster who is looking at adults.”

    Rasmussen, of course, is hardly the only pollster to come under fire this election cycle — just the one who attracts the most sustained criticism.

    Last month, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh accused the Gallup polling organization of “doing everything they can — they're upping the sample to black Americans — to keep” Obama’s approval at 50 percent.

    And PPP, which has also increased its profile in the past two election cycles, has drawn criticism from Republicans for repeatedly showing North Carolina GOP Sen. Richard Burr with low ratings heading into his 2010 reelection.

    “You’d like for people to approach poll data in an intellectually honest way and not just say, ‘I don’t like this pollster because of his numbers. But that’s just the nature of partisan activism,” said Jensen, whose firm, like Rasmussen's, relies on automated polls. “I don’t think that what’s happening with Rasmussen is unusual. It’s just that sometimes when people are unhappy, sometimes you shoot the messenger.”

    Franklin, the University of Wisconsin political scientist, argued that the frequency with which Rasmussen produces data makes the firm an inevitable target in the 24/7 media age.

    “I really think that if Rasmussen were polling three times a month or one time a month, he wouldn’t be as much of a thorn in the side of Democrats,” said Franklin. “But because he’s polling so much, he stands out every day.”

    Rasmussen says the attention that his often buzzworthy polls generate — positive or negative — is good for business.

    Proving that he revels in it, Rasmussen recently posted an unusual video clip on his website — late-night comedian Jimmy Fallon deriding the pollster earlier this year in a rap song as an “outlier” whose results were “spastic.”

    “We are excited by it,” Rasmussen said of the attention his firm has received.

    lol, so Rasmussen is polling more more republicans because he feels the next election will bring more conservatives to the polls, loving all the attention, and showing lower results for Obama than other polls. Great article, will his gamble pay off and are his results a prediction of the future?

    “lefty bloggers complain about Rasmussen, but pollsters the Politico interviewed do not back their complaints.”

    Liberal translation: Obama's tankin' in polls everywhere so the one showing the most tanking is obviously flawed. As we learned from Algorythmic global warming analysis, toss out the outliers and exaggerate the results.

    Or simply make sh*t up as they have shamelessly done in both cases.

    Press corps grills Gibbs: Um, didn’t Obama totally shamelessly lie about C-SPAN?

    Reminds me of the time Tapper coolly yet cruelly pressed Gibbs to defend Biden’s sub-moronic advice to New Yorkers about avoiding city subways during swine-flu season. There is, and can be, no defense here, and everyone in the room knows it. The point of asking is simply to make Gibbs look constipated — which, of course, it does. In fact, the best he can do by way of an answer is to mumble that The One wants a bill on his desk as soon as possible, an implicit admission that the White House is prepared to sacrifice all its gauzy promises about transparency on the altar of finally ramming this travesty through. But then, we already knew that.

    Boost your sound before you watch the first clip, as the audio’s very low for some reason. As for the second clip, you probably watched it already at some point today via Drudge or our own Headlines section. If so, watch it again. Lies this shameless, especially from the lips of our modern-day Lincoln-Jesus, must be cherished. Click the image to watch.

    Re: President Obama

    When you lose the AP... you know the bubble has finally burst.

    Analysis: Obama's buck-stopping goes only so far


    WASHINGTON – He says "the buck stops with me," but nearly a year into office, President Barack Obama is still blaming a lot of the nation's troubles — the economy, terrorism, health care — on George W. Bush.

    Over and over, Obama keeps reminding Americans of the mess he inherited and all he's doing to fix it. A sharper, give-me-some-credit tone has emerged in his language as he bemoans people's fleeting memory about what life was like way back in 2008, particularly on the economy.

    "Yes, we can"?

    Try "Yes, I have."


    While candid about what he called his team's "screw-up" in the botched Christmas airliner attack, Obama has made a point of underlining all the good he believes his government has done, too.

    "Our progress has been unmistakable," Obama said as the new year began. "We've disrupted terrorist financing, cutting off recruiting chains, inflicted major losses on al-Qaida's leadership, thwarted plots here in the United States and saved countless American lives."

    Yet every time Obama tries to offer a dose of perspective like that, he faces the reality that people live in the moment.

    On terrorism, Americans are less concerned about quiet successes than troubling failures, especially one that evoked harrowing memories of Sept. 11, 2001.

    On the economy, people prefer good news now, not updates on how things are gradually getting less bad.

    The way Obama sees it, the problems he took on — recession, war, health care, a warming planet — were always too huge and complicated to fix that fast.

    So he emphasizes progress by taking people back to where he began.

    Which means taking them back to Bush.

    "I don't need to remind any of you about the situation we found ourselves in at the beginning of this year," Obama told people at a Home Depot stop last month. And then he reminded them anyway, detailing a nation in financial free fall when he took office.

    The economy now is both groaning and growing.

    Gloomy employers just slashed another 85,000 jobs in December, but Obama rarely misses a chance, as he did again Friday, to remind people that, hey, remember the job erosion at the start of the year? About 700,000 a month.

    That is true, but it doesn't matter much to the man or woman who is out of work, a point Obama concedes.

    He's not just trying to give people context. He's trying to shore up his standing and his party's, hoping voters will let it all sink in during this big congressional election year.

    An overwhelming majority of people say 2009 was a bad year for the country, according to the latest Associated Press-GfK poll. As Democrats head toward midterm elections trying to hang onto control of the House and Senate, half of Americans still think the country is headed in the wrong direction.

    Obama needs to show that he gets results. And so he describes a year of overlooked achievement since his predecessor left town, addressing a range of problems: hate crimes, tobacco advertisements toward children, pay disparities for women, abuses by credit card companies and many more.

    In other words, change from Bush.

    Except for when Obama sounds just like Bush with tough words for the enemy.

    "We are destroying training camps, disrupting communications and dismantling air defenses," Bush said of the mission in Afghanistan in November 2001.

    Said Obama this week of terrorists seeking to kill Americans: "We are determined not only to thwart those plans but to disrupt, dismantle and defeat their networks once and for all."

    When Obama got heat for his government's decision to try the Sept. 11 mastermind, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, in a civilian court, he defended it by saying the justice system has handled other recent terror suspects just fine. He spoke of examples during Bush's administration. "We've done this before," he said.

    Even when Obama achieves what he wants, the public doesn't always seem to share the feeling of success.

    He may be close to signing what could be the one of the biggest domestic laws in decades, an overhaul of health coverage in America. The House and Senate have passed separate versions and are trying to give Obama a bill to sign within weeks. But the nasty, noisy partisan fights have left many people soured and confused.

    "I suspect he's just trying as best he can to give people a sense that what they've been experiencing, seeing and reading is not an accurate portrayal of what's actually gotten done," said Norman Ornstein, a politics scholar at the American Enterprise Institute.

    Obama has openly wondered how some of his work is forgotten so fast.

    "I think we have been successful in averting disaster," Obama said on Dec. 16 about righting the economy. "You know, you don't get a lot of credit for that, because nobody knows how bad it could have been."

    On this front, Obama often chides the media for what he sees as accentuating the negative and minimizing progress. As on Dec. 4 when Obama mocked the press for saying he had pivoted back from health care to jobs. He insisted that every day is about jobs. "Folks' attention spans are short," he said.

    Not everyone's. Nearly 15.3 million people are unemployed, an increase of 3.9 million during 2009, and a lot of Americans seem aware that that problem is far from over.

    A Gallup Poll near the end of the year found 25 percent of people — just one in four — feeling satisfied with how things were going in the United States.

    "The president himself, not surprisingly, may feel quite satisfied with accomplishments in his first year," said Frank Newport, editor in chief of the Gallup Poll. "But we don't see signs that the American public is positive."

    Re: President Obama

    When you lose C-BS..

    Oh my: Obama under 50% approval for first time in CBS poll

    And not just a point or two under, either.

    President Obama’s job approval rating has fallen to 46 percent, according to a new CBS News poll.

    That rating is Mr. Obama’s lowest yet in CBS News polling, and the poll marks the first time his approval rating has fallen below the 50 percent mark. Forty-one percent now say they disapprove of Mr. Obama’s performance as president…

    Just 41 percent now approve of his handling of the economy, which Americans say is the nation’s most pressing issue. Forty-seven percent disapprove. The president’s marks on handling health care, with reforms still under debate in Congress, are even lower – just 36 percent approve, while 54 percent disapprove. Both of these approval ratings are the lowest of Mr. Obama’s presidency.
    Approval among indies? A robust 42 percent, which may help explain why he’s not headed to Massachusetts this week. The easy explanation here is that this is a backlash from watching him play golf after the Flight 253 attack, but tain’t so: 57 percent approve of how the administration handled that. What I think we’re looking at is steady erosion over unemployment plus the horrifying realization that the Democrats really, truly are going to pass this giant crap sandwich. In fact, aside from a couple of Harris Internet polls, his approval on health care has never been as low as 36 percent in any poll dating back to the beginning of the year. Amazing.

    No worries, though. Axelrod says they’re totally going to sell it once it passes, and NPR thinks he’s had a simply sterling first year. Exit question: Was “a solid B+” too low of a grade?

    Re: President Obama

    "Americans split on success of Obama presidency". When 48% say he's a failure and 47% say he's a success... the headline is "split on his success"? F*cking hilarious.... CNN and the messiah can share this one..



    CNN Poll: Americans split on success of Obama presidency

    Washington (CNN) - Americans are giving Barack Obama a split decision on his first year in office, according to a new national poll.

    Forty-eight percent of people questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Tuesday say Obama's presidency has been a failure so far, with 47 percent saying Obama has been a success. The poll's January 12 release comes just 8 days before Obama marks one year in the White House.

    The survey indicates that Obama's approval rating as president stands at 51 percent, down 3 points from last month, with 48 percent disapproving, up 4 points from December.

    "On the plus side for Obama, he remains personally popular and he gets decent ratings on foreign policy and national security issues. That may explain why his overall approval rating is a little higher than the number who say Obama's first year has been a success," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. "Unfortunately for Obama, domestic issues - led by the economy - are far more important to the public than foreign policy issues, and a majority disapprove of how he is handling every single economic and domestic issue tested."

    According to the survey, the economy by far remains issue No. 1 with Americans, with 47 percent saying it is the most important issue facing the country today - up 7 points from last month. Health care, at 15 percent, is the second most important issue with the public, followed by the deficit at 11 percent. Terrorism is tied with the deficit, and up 7 points from last month, most likely do to widespread coverage of the attempted terrorist bombing of a U.S. airliner on Christmas Day.

    The dominance of domestic issues in importance is most likely a contributing factor to the slight dip in Obama's overall approval rating.

    "Only 44 percent approve of how Obama is handling the economy; just 4 in 10 give him a thumbs-up on health care and his approval rating on the federal deficit has plunged to 36 percent. Those are three of the four most important issues on the public's mind today," says Holland. "The president's ratings also suffer from the growing perception that he is too liberal - 46 percent feel that way today, up 10 points from March.

    The poll also indicates that 1 in 10 say that Obama has not been liberal enough. But while the public takes issue with Obama on the issues, two-thirds continue to believe that he has the leadership skills and personal characteristics that a president should have, and that may explain why his overall approval is so much higher than his rating on the issues of greatest concern to the public.

    The president can also take heart in the fact that his 51 percent approval rating is nearly twice as high as the approval rating for Congress. As the House of Representatives comes back into session Tuesday, only 27 percent of Americans have a favorable view of Congress.

    The CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll was conducted Friday through Sunday, with 1,021 adult Americans questioned by telephone. The survey's overall sampling error is plus or minus 3 percentage points.

    BREAKING: Coakley Thug Who Roughed-Up Weekly Standard Reporter is Obama Appointee (Updated)


    Barack Obama: “They Bring a Knife…We Bring a Gun”

    Here’s the video of Weekly Standard reporter John McCormack getting pushed over a railing outside Martha Coakley’s lobbyist fundraiser in Washington DC.

    The DNC sent the reported thug, Michael Meehan, to Massachusetts to assist with messaging.
    Here’s the photo of the downed Weekly Standard reporter John McCormack:

    He was roughed up and pushed down by Michael Meehan.

    And, here is a page from the White House website:

    Michael Meehan was nominated by President Barack Obama to the Broadcasting Board of Governors in November, via Free Republic.
    What a complete shock.

    UPDATE: The Plum Line reported that Obama appointee Michael Meehan apologized today for roughing-up John McCormack.
