Let us rephrase that: polls that agree with our point of view are always interesting.
CBS News, which seems to have noticed the bloom is off the rose faster than NBC or ABC (the Czar bases this on CBS Newss intensifying coverage on Fast and Furious), released a poll that shows most Americans are concluding the President deserves only one term. This is a specific trend, and it is curious how his numbers deflate every time he delivers a speech. Wow, can this guy under-deliver or what?
As the president gears up for his re-election campaign, 66 percent of Americans say they do not have a clear idea of what he wants to accomplish in a second term; just a third say they do. Fewer than half of Democrats say they have a clear idea of what the president wants to accomplish if re-elected.
At this point, anyone who still cheers or applauds or gets weepy-eyed for the President is seriously refusing to step back and be a tad more objective.
Of course, a lot of extreme supporters say that Congress is even worse. The CBS poll shows that 82% of Americans believe Congress is a crap hole, which is pretty consistent with what we keep hearing. But waitGallup conducted a poll that found 53% of Americans think their representative should be re-elected.
In other words, Congress is enjoying a 53% approval ratingbecause you can only vote for your representative. It matters not one whit what you think of any other rep. You cant vote anyone else out. So, really, the only Congressional poll number that matters is how you view your own representative.
In that respect, Congress is enjoying a better net approval rating than the President.
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
