There’s a new poll circulating that says Barack Obama now has a 60 percent favorability rating. That is pretty amazing, isn’t it?
Only problem with it is that it is skewed heavily with democrats – 48 percent democrats, 29 percent republicans, and 2 percent independant. So the poll is totally unreliable and it’s a shame that AP and various other media are spreading this around.
I tried to verify this from their website as to the breakdown, and there is nothing there that shows the actual poll. It says there is a 4.2 percent margin of error. And the poll is of the general population, not registered or likely voters.
It is a shame that the once respected Associated Press has stooped to this kind of Obama worship.
But even the Most Worshipful admit that this so-called spike is likely short lived.
