The Dem spin machine will roll on, but the voters will not be buying it when they're in the booth pushing those buttons or pulling those levers. That "insurance policy" is going to keep the House in the hands of the GOP in 2014, and may give them the Senate. 2016 remains to be seen, but Hillary was "inevitable" in 2008 and look what happened.
And I am having a great day. A great MONTH actually. It only gets better when I watch the news. And it ain't FOX NEWS I'm watching. (But you can be sure it isn't MSNBC - but then nobody else is watching them either. Their ratings have been in free-fall for months:
and even my buddy Alec Baldwin appears to be going down the tubes:
Ok Sebe. You got your source for the numbers game, I got mine.
One of us is going to be right in the end, and I bet you one of Tot's foodstamps, that it will be me. And I will only say that if I am 'dreamining', then that means I am sleeping. You Conservative boys, from what I am seeing here on these pages, is straight out of the Psychotic Ward. And yall are AWAKE!
Well Sheran, you have found a way to get me to watch Bill O'Reilly. I am continually amused how the right utilizes aging right wing white guys in midlife crises to voice their views; Bill, Glenn Beck, Rush, et.al.
Still waiting on some beach pics.
Jimmy: You folks on the left have yet to dispute any numbers I put up. Why? Because they're fact. When my numbers are wrong, I'll admit it, but I won't blow smoke when I DON'T have the numbers.
"Well Sheran, you have found a way to get me to watch Bill O'Reilly."
Don't do it. It will stunt your growth, rot your brain and make you go blind. If you want to get as aggravated as conservatives get when they watch MSNBC, then watch O'Reilly. If you want to keep your blood pressure down, stay away from him, Hannity, and the entire FNC Prime-Time lineup. Greta isn't bad, but the subject matter falls in line with the overall.
Here's your "beachpics".☺☺☺
@Sebe. I think PN's facts hold up well agin yours. Thanks for the advice on O'Reilly!
@Sheran. Thanks babe. Those pics are right up my alley. I kid you not.
Yes I did. And speaking of Fox News - check out THIS poll:
In case the link doesn't work, it says:
"The news about the President's signature legislative accomplishment continues to get worse. A new poll by YouGov finds that more people trust Fox News for information about the so-called "Affordable Care Act" than trust President Obama."
"...almost twice as many people trust Fox than the President."
YouGov is headquartered in the UK and is a member of the British Polling Council. It is also registered with the UK Information Commissioner's Office. The YouGov Group has 21 offices worldwide, across the UK, United States, Europe, Nordics, and the Middle East.
The poll also revealed (no surprise) that:
"Notice that MSNBC is the most untrusted. Maybe its because the shills at that so-called "news" outlet have more dishonestly covered this program than any other."
I guess they are comparing the shills at MSNBC with the shills at the other cable and news networks. But regardless, the poll results are interesting - and consistent with my sense of how WE THE PEOPLE view the media coverage of ObamaCare.
There are also some numbers in THIS poll, just released by the Quinnipiac polling outfit. The new poll reveals:
*"Republicans mount shock comeback, erase Democrats’ edge in eyes of Americans.
*In just six weeks, Republicans have completely erased a 9-point deficit in a generic congressional ballot question and are now running even with Democrats.
*Thirty-nine percent of registered voters say they would vote for a Democrat in their district — and the same percentage say they would vote for a Republican — if elections for the U.S. House of Representatives were held today.
*Last month, Democrats had held a nine-point advantage on the same question, 43 percent to 34 percent. Independent voters favored Democrats in October, 32 percent to 30 percent, but now favor Republicans by a 37 percent to 26 percent margin.
*The poll of 2,545 registered voters was conducted from Nov. 6-11 and has a margin of error of 1.9 percentage points.
Thirty-two percent of respondents self-identified as Democrats, 26 percent said they were Republicans, and 35 percent said they were independents."
...and I especially like THIS poll, which was conducted by the Democratic firm "Public Policy Polling." According to the Dem's own polling:
"Incumbent Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) is near the top of national Republicans’ target list for 2014 — and a new poll shows her lead over her potential GOP challengers has all but evaporated.
Against state House Speaker Thom Tillis, Hagan leads by only 2 points, 44 percent to 42 percent, according to the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling. She leads the Rev. Mark Harris by 2 points as well, 43 percent to 41 percent, and nurse Heather Grant by 3 points, 43 percent to 40 percent.
That’s a huge difference from PPP’s September poll, which gave Hagan leads of anywhere from 12 points to 17 points against all possible GOP challengers.
Hagan’s approval ratings are underwater in the poll: 49 percent of those surveyed disapprove of the job she’s doing, compared with 44 percent who approve."
...and don't forget THIS poll - also conducted by Quinnipac University. The numbers - released this past Tuesday - indicate that the President is being tagged with full ownership of ObamaCare, and the "GOP 17% shutdown" is far in the rearview mirror. Specifically:
"A new Quinnipiac University survey says American voters disapprove of Obama's performance by 54% to 39%, the worst marks of his presidency.
As with similar polls in recent days, most of Obama's problems can be traced to criticism of the new health care plan, including website problems and cancellation notices on existing policies.
Quinnipiac noted that Obama had a 45% approval rating at the start of October, the month the health care plan rollout began.
"President Obama's misstatement, 'if you like your health plan, you can keep it,' left a bad taste with a lot of people," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. "Nearly half of the voters, 46%, think he knowingly deceived them."
"Like all new presidents, President Barack Obama had a honeymoon with American voters, with approval ratings in the high 50s. As the marriage wore on, he kept his job approval scores in the respectable, though not overwhelming, 40s. Today, for the first time it appears that 40 percent floor is cracking.
"Any Democrat with an 11-point approval deficit among women is in trouble. And any elected official with an 8-point trust deficit is in serious trouble.
"President Obama's job approval rating has fallen to the level of former President George W. Bush at the same period of his Presidency."
When USATODAY - lefties that they are - close their article pointing out that the President's poll numbers are comparable to Dubya's - you know Mr. Obama is in trouble.
You are formidable at documentation, Sebe. I may not agree wid ja on all your numbers, tho. There is GOOD press and there is BAD Press. Same regarding poll numbers. The POTUS just ran over a pot hole. And I am not talking the kinda pot hole that emanates blue smoke.
However, I just got thru watching him on T.V. and the game is far from over. He and those folks who got all them cancellation letters are going to emerge from this in better shape than they were in BEFORE ACA.
Besides, Sebe, all the cards have not been dealt yet. Both sides may have their hold cards, but the river cards have not been laid out. We're not even at the mid-terms yet and 2016 is 3 years down the road.
I think one of us Sebe is holding a pair of Kings. And if you've ever played Texas Hold Em, you know what that can mean. I'ma bettin you got them two boys in your hand right now. I will wait on the river to deliver me three of a kind or that third ACE.
Don't cha just love analogies?
BTW: check out Sherans beach pics she sent me. Also, on the side there are links to other pics. I am starting to like her more now.
All of these polls are fact. I'm not making up a thing. I have made very few editorial comments, which I base on my political opinion and the polls themselves. The numbers speak for themselves. I'm not saying they won't change, but as of right now that's the trend.
Actually, I usually fold unless I have two pair; three of a kind; or better. But that was a long time ago, and if I played cards for real nowadays of course I wouldn't reveal my strategy this way. But with that strategy, you can see why I no longer play.
I'll have to check out the pics.....
...good ones. THIS one was listed out to the right. Hilarious:
I don't usually watch "network" TV, but saw some interesting "sorority initiations" on "American Horror Story: Coven" a few weeks back.....
