Another day another poll predicting disaster for the Republicans:

Americans have a bleaker view of the country’s direction than at any time in more than two decades, and sharp disapproval of President Bush’s handling of gasoline prices has combined with intensified unhappiness about Iraq to create a grim political environment for the White House and Congressional Republicans, according to the latest

Mr. Bush’s approval rating for his management of foreign policy, Iraq and the economy have fallen to the lowest levels of his presidency. He drew poor marks on the specific issues that have been at the top of the national agenda in recent months ? in particular, immigration and gas prices ? underscoring the difficulty the administration faces in reversing its political fortunes.

Just 13 percent approved of Mr. Bush’s handling of rising gas prices. Only one-quarter said they approved of his handling of immigration, as Congressional Republicans struggle to come up with a compromise to deal with the influx of illegal immigrants into the country.

Once again lets look at those they polled. Out of 1,124 polled 41% were independent (yes, you read that right, sounds like the real makeup of the United States huh?), 39% were Democrat and 31% were Republican.

The weighted numbers are 1,048 polled. 45% Independent, 43% Democrat, & 30% Republican.

Yes, a 13% difference with 45% Independents. How in the hell can anyone really honestly believe this crapola? The 2004 Presidential election had the Republican with 50.7% of the vote next to 48.3% for the Democrat. Independents had .04%!

How about the last midterm election in 2002?

49.6% for the Republican while 46.9% for the Democrats. Independents? .02%

Hello? MSM? Do you think anyone buys this crap other then the KOS kiddies and DummiesU alumni?

These polls are bogus plain and simple. All of it done so that the MSM can continue to print bold headlines screaming Bush and the Republicans are doomed! Where were they in 1994 when all the signs pointed to a Republican takeover? (via Newsbusters)

Bob Schieffer led Tuesday’s CBS Evening News by heralding ?bad news for the Republicans?in a new CBS News/New York Times poll and suggesting the new poll portends ?a dramatic shift in the political landscape? with approval of Congress at only 23 percent, its lowest since 20 percent in 1994. But reporting on that low number 12 years ago, just six days before Republicans took control of the House and Senate, Bob Schieffer didn’t see disaster ahead for Democrats. Back then he maintained: ?It’s hard to gauge who’ll be helped or hurt by all this gloom come Election Day.?

[…]Reporting the survey back in 1994, however, Schieffer did not inform viewers of how the GOP “dominated” issues, never referred to the Congress as ?Democrat-controlled? and didn’t bother to mention how 54 percent viewed Republicans favorably, ten points above the 44 percent who viewed Democrats favorably. (Transcripts from Tuesday and 1994 follow.)

Twelve years ago, the CBS News/New York Times poll people waited until the very end of October to assess how the public viewed Congress and the Wednesday, November 2 CBS Evening News with Dan Rather and Connie Chung — six days before the election — waited until after the first ad break to get to the results.

This is the crux of the matter. They are relentlessly polling in a biased manner just so they can make everyone believe we are doomed. Say it over and over and maybe it will happen.

Until we get a poll of people that represents what the Country actually looks like then all of this is crap.
