A Voice of Reason: Sane Views for a Crazy World

Bush’s Approval Ratings SKYROCKET – Developing Trend?

I bet I got you on that one!

Recently I posted about Newsweek’s poll and its 28% approval rating for President Bush.  I stated the internals of the poll and showed the reasons why the 28% was not correct, as it oversampled registered Democrats by 50%.  I guess Newsweek counts on people NOT reading the fine print, which is why they are little more than a rag which appeals to the least intelligent part of the nation.

Opinion Research and CNN recently conducted a poll, and whie it may not have the Bush Administration singing for joy, it showed, like Rasmussen, that the President’s approval level is at 38%, or more than 25% higher than Newsweek’s biased poll.  The reason is simple, CNN did not overpoll Democrats, although there was a slightly higher number of Democrats than Republicans 454 to 414, this represents a 10% overpolling of Dems, which is slightly higher than the national average of voter registration.

What does it all mean, is it that the President is Rebounding?  No, it means when you put in garbage, you get out garbage.  The 38% is much more accurate of a view of the President’s ratings.  Newsweek I am actually becoming convinced, simply put out BS skewed data to better serve their Master, NBC news, which is hands down the “most” biased of all the newscasts.  MSNBC using the equivalent of a “Democratic Shock Jock”, Kieth Olberman, to be an anchor makes it very clear to see they are truly operating from a bias that makes FOX’s Conservative bias look mild.



  1. The truth is most people probably don’t read the fine print.And stations don’t bother to tell viewers the dynamics of the poll. They just throw the number out there and most people just believe it.

    I think you are right about Fox’s ‘bias’, it is much milder than the left bias on the other stations. Fox will not ask questions in their debate as lame as some of the ones the Republicans had to face on MSNBC during the debate last week.

  3. Hi a,

    There’s another poll out recently which is even more interesting. It gives Bush a slightly higher rating, but the approval level for Congress is within two or three points of the same number. It would seem that the general public may, finally, be ready to throw them all out. Well, we can hope.

  4. I KNOW I could generate a poll that would show over 60% of the American public supporting staying in Iraq. The media has a VESTED interest in making a story. That’s the nature of politics.
