BUNK: That NBC Poll? Obama's Down to 51%, Even Among Adults

Confirming Gallup, and strongly suggesting that Rasmussen's level of support -- 49% of likely supporters -- is actually now too high by 2 or 3 points.

Disapproval? 40%.

Bonus Damage! Rasmussen has the generic congressional holding steady at good guys +5.

Multi-Hit Combo-Move Damage! Granny Rictus McBotoxImplants whines about biased NBC poll!

Her objection is over the earlier-reported bit that 47%, a plurality, now opposes the public option.

Liberals and progressives -- including Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office and the group Health Care for America Now -- have raised questions why our poll measured whether Americans supported the "choice" of a public/government option in June, while in July and this month it removed "choice" and simply asked whether Americans favor or oppose the option.

"One can only wonder why the NBC/Wall Street Journal poll removed the concept of choice of a public option after 76% of Americans say they want that choice," said HCAN national campaign manager Richard Kirsch in a statement. "By dropping what the president proposes and what the public strongly supports - giving people a choice - from their list of questions, the NBC/Wall Street Journal pollsters misrepresent reform and raise questions about their own agenda."

Yes, the famously conservative NBC, which will soon offer a "Director's Cut" of Brian Williams' fawning, bowing interview of Barack Hussein Obama, featuring hilarious outtakes and bloopers, like when Brian Williams dressed up like a mutant from Beneath the Planet of the Apes and prayed to Obama as "My Thermonuclear Lord and Savior."

Thanks to DrewM. and AHFF Geoff.

Finish Him! Real Clear Politics average now at 52%, and that includes a stale Marist poll showing him with an unlikely 55% approval.
