There's No Way I Can Do Another Easy Blow-Off Poll Post

I convinced me.

Swing Voters Oppose Obama 60% to 36%

And I believe this is personal favorability-- not job performance. And personal favorability is more critical, as it sets the ceiling and floor for one's support.

Sixty percent of swing voters have an unfavorable image of Obama, while only 36 percent of them have a favorable view, says the George Washington University Battleground Poll, which was released Nov. 4.

Overall, 50 percent of respondents have an unfavorable view, while 48 percent have a favorable view, the poll reported.

Forty-five percent of respondents approved of Obama’s job performance, which is a consistent with polls going back to late 2011. That number shows only a small slice of the electorate outside the Democratic base is pleased with Obama’s work.

Okay, now enjoy this spin from the Democrats behind the poll:

The Democratic pollsters who developed the poll, however, predict the public’s disgust at Washington will hurt the GOP incumbents in 2014. “The political center — self‐described ‘moderates’ —… [put] the blame even more squarely on the Republicans (50% to 26% for Obama and the Democrats),” reported Celinda Lake, Daniel Gotoff, and Alex Dunn.

Yeah there's one problem with that: The Republican opposition to Obamacare -- their constant "hysterical warnings" about it, their "extremist obstructionism" in attempting to derail it -- sure looks something like Truth and Wisdom now.

The other thing Democrats will say is, mockingly, "Well, gee, I guess that really dooms Obama in his 2016 reelection, huh? Psych-- he's not running again. Ha ha!"

Yeah I know they'll say that because we said stuff like that about Bush's declining support from 2005 to 2008.

But while Obama is not on the ballot, an awful lot of Democrats are, and those Democrats all supported Obamacare, including voting against attempts to give meaning to Obama's "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan" promise.

And Bush's unpopularity fueled the rise of Obama.

Here's another angle: The media loves to focus on the Tea Party because there is an intraparty war going on. The Tea Party has a lot of firm positions that they consider non-negotiable, and the pragmatic, let's-just-win-elections Establishment finds it hard to win with these positions.

But what's going to happen with Obama now? As he falls further in popularity, his most devoted cultists will scream, "You must support him all the harder! He is our savior! He is the apotheosis of the progressive dream and hes is too big to fail!"

So we'll have that sort of extremism from the prog base.

Meanwhile, what will the Democrat Establishment do?

Well, I think what they'll do is continue to stand by Obama... but they will pay a price for that. And when a Senator or two decides to thwart Obama to save his own skin, the left will start enjoying its own intraparty DINOs-must-be-purged war.

Success masks divisions. Failure uncovers them, and catastrophic failure not only uncovers them, but then grinds on them with a cheese grater and spritzes lemon juice into the pink bloody wound.

Remember... Bush supporters being called "dead-enders" in 2007 or so?

Yeah. Can't wait for the Obama dead-enders.

This is so obvious that I feel it's actually stupid to say: But the Republicans should explicitly make the case between their opposition to Obamacare and, well, Obamacare.

See what I mean? It's stupid.

But yes, you can say We were right if you're not obnoxious about it.

And if you don't blame people themselves for having been stupid -- which, and I mean this most emphatically, they were.

But you can't say that. You have to shift blame from the Stupid American Voters to Obama and the Democrats' nonstop lies, telling the voters Their lies, and their media Palace Guards, prevented us from getting the truth to you.

Not that the public was stupid and lazy and bears the responsibility for this -- which they do. But you can't say that.

Take all responsibility from them and shift it squarely on to Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Baucus, and the media.

People do not like taking responsibility for their mistakes. And if you ask them to, they will react with hostility.

What they love is being told You're a victim of someone else's wrongdoing.

And there's an awful lot of wrongdoing in the media, in the White House, and in the Democrat Party to make this case to people.

The American People were lied to. They were lied to constantly, shamelessly, enthusiastically. They were lied to with relish -- Obama often smiled as he was lying.

Tell the public they were lied to, and that it's not their fault for trusting in the Democrats' latest series of socialist lies.

Oh, and borrow Obama's pet phrase: "And the Middle Class."

He's financed his boondoggle with a dishonest tax directly on the Middle Class.

And they should know it.
