Oh, My: CNN Poll Finds 48% of America Categorize Obama's Presidency Thusfar as a "Failure"
Oh, My Part II: CBSNews Finds Obama at Lowest Approval Ever at 46%

CNN's Headline:

CNN Poll: Americans split on success of Obama presidency

Are you f'n' kidding me? The key finding of the poll is...

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.

...and they give it that anodyne headline? A plurality of 48% calls him a failure so far, and CNN can only rouse themselves to say there's a split in opinion?

Oh well. It doesn't really matter. The people know, and the people feel this way. If the media wants to continue living in pretend-world, it doesn't matter.

Oh yeah: Approval down 3 to 51%; disapproval up four to 48%.

"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.

Important finding, CNN.

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.

Oh definitely! He can sooooo totally take heart in that! He beats Congress' approval rating!

Um, except even Bush at his most unpopular also beat Congress' approval rating. I don't remember CNN ever suggesting The Fiend Bush could "take heart" in that.


Thanks to AHFF Geoff.

CBS/NYTimes Poll: Actually, I should say I don't know this is a joint CBS/NYT poll; I just assume it is, because they almost always partner up for these polls. (Correction: Nope, just a CBS poll, Geoff tells me. The NYT partners with them once a month, and this isn't that once a month.)

Their tears are so delicious.

46% approve, 41% disapprove. And this is with adults, the friendliest sample for Obama.

Geoff also tips we'll have a new Gallup number in ten minutes.

Cowbell:



I've mentioned this before, but I played this song like 6000 times through the 2004 election season to psych myself up. Kinda getting that 2004 feeling again.
