Heavily Obama-Biased** Reporting

Obstructs AP’s Polling Accuracy



        Did you know that President Obama’s overall job approval rating jumped 14% after the successful Navy SEAL raid that killed Usama Bin Laden?   That amazing statistic comes to us courtesy of the Associated Press’s (the AP provides Yahoo’s news coverage) highly-biased news and opinion polling staff.   In contrast, the venerable Gallup polling showed a 6% jump in presidential approval and Rasmussen Reports showed a 3% jump. What does the AP polling agency know that Rasmussen doesn’t?  Rasmussen Reports, which  notably only surveys “probable-voters” rather than all adults, has been the most accurate polling agency over the last decade-plus so the 11% difference in presidential approval between AP pollsters and Rasmussen immediately raised eyebrows among the politically savvy.


       Right now Rasmussen trends show the American populace favoring Republican candidates by a 41% to 38% margin and 34.4% of the populace calling themselves “Democrats” versus 34.1% calling themselves “Republicans.” Rasmussen typically seeks to take representative samplings of 1,000 or more individuals.  In contrast, however, the recent survey run by the AP featured a 35% Democratic sector versus an 18% Republican sampling fueling the President’s job approval jump from 46% to 60% in the AP poll . . . in other words, where honest statisticians like Rasmussen claim and fulfill a 95% accuracy rating +/-4% (thus 60% fits into the range of 56% - 64%). . . statistical standards rating the recent AP polling would predict an 8% accuracy rating +/-4%.  While the AP’s continued liberal-progressive slant over the last decade and a half has been a clear journalistic abomination . . . any polling agency which subjects its readers and clients to 8% accuracy has lost all credibility.   was passed with the promise that after it was passed the nation's unemployment would never rise above 8.0% . . . (we've had 7.95% unemployment only once over the last twenty-seven months and unemployment has been as high as 10%).  The bottom line:  knowing this (Bin Laden killing) job approval spike for President Obama was doomed to be short-lived, someone at apparently AP decided to make some sort of a pro-Obama statement with their bogus 60% approval rating rather than following normal and accepted polling procedures:  appalling!  We repeat, while the AP’s continued liberal-progressive slant over the last decade and a half has been a clear journalistic abomination . . . any polling agency which subjects its readers and clients to 8% accuracy has lost all credibility.  Rajjpuut is sending this blog to, his favorite ISP telling them that unless some measure of objectivity is restored to Yahoo’s AP news and polling coverage . . . if you concur, please send your opinion to Yahoo and AP as well.
       For what it's worth, the phrase, "It's the economy, Stupid!" is still the most valid predictor of people's voting patterns.  Remember, Mr. Obama promised he would cut the nation's deficit in half by 2013 . . . but, of course, with his $787 Billion stimulus added in . . . Obama has more than quadrupled the deficit; and that same stimulus

Ya’all live long, strong and ornery,



“Corruption” is a strong word and suggestions of media bias are serious accusations. . . but well beyond those issues, deliberately skewing supposedly objective polling  results must be considered a real low for any journalistic organization.  Where did this corruption come from? While George Soros’ funding connection to progressive organizations like Media Matters and to National Public Radio (NPR) are well known, recent investigations have also shown that multi-billionaire Soros has contributed large sums of money to more than thirty liberal American media organizations in just the last year. Tying that in with the AP’s proclivity to run liberal-slanted press releases and opinion pieces from any of the 527 Soros-funded non-profit organizations (he also OWNS over 50 such foundations) as if they were actually researched straight news stories; without editing; without fact-checking;  and without getting counter-balancing opinion . . . and the suggestion grows strong that the AP has sold its soul to the “spooky dude’s” agenda.


       Soros, of course, gave $1.8 million to NPR, which became part of the firestorm over NPR's federal funding.  The very progressive^^ (he calls himself "liberal") Soros spent $27 million trying to defeat George W. Bush in 2004 and his widespread influence upon liberal newspapers such as the New York Times and Washington Post is rumored to be the only thing keeping them from bankruptcy.  But mainstream broadcast outlets like NBC, ABC, CBS; and the Associated Press (the subject of this blog) are also well-documented recipients of Soros liberal largesse.
      ^^ Progressives believe we must first 'progress' against the 'outdated and ill-conceived U.S. Constitution' if we are to 'progress' toward their earthly Utopia.  Most conservatives regard progressives as little more than Marxist-socialists.

Obama’s cavalier attitude toward increasing taxes and government spending and government control; deficits, national debt and unfunded liabilities on the one hand . . . and toward violating both the letter and the spirit of the U.S. Constitution on the other hand . . . are in a nutshell, the single biggest uniter of the mainstream against him.
Americans Believe Country
on the Wrong Track

When 67% of likely American voters say the country is heading in the wrong direction, you’d expect a lot of agreement on the question. Only two in every seven voters (28%) believe the country is heading the right way, but . . . . that humble statistic includes 53% of Democrats; 73% of the political** class; and 64% of Blacks who assert that the nation is indeed headed in the right direction.^^

Opposing that idea are 91% of Republicans; 73% of unaffiliated voters; 82% of mainstream** voters; and 70% of all non-black ethnicities who feel the country is headed along the wrong path. This data, taken from Rasmussen Reports recent polling . . . is a disappointment for Obama administration officials. “We don’t watch polls,” says Robert Gibbs, the White House Press Secretary . . . an obvious lie contradicted by hundreds of other things Mr. Gibbs has said in the last nineteen months.
The single key comparison is this: 82% of mainstream voters say the country is on the wrong path while 73% of the political class aver we’re heading in the right direction. That amounts to a difference of 165% in evaluating the present situation in America: that is a monumental gulf. Our politicians and those who approve of the work of our politicians are presumably further apart today then the colonists and Great Britain’s leaders were in 1775. In comparison the difference between the Republicans (-91%) and Democrats (+53%) is great but just 144%; and the perception difference between Blacks (+64%) and other ethnicities (-70%) is a mere 134%;
Leftist blogsites have gone berserk since the new poll data was published by Rasmussen. Their spin? Some accuse Rasmussen (the most accurate pollster over the last eight years) of running a biased survey. Others say White male voters are expressing “racism.” They deny that women or Hispanics or Blacks or the young (the four key elements of the “president’s base”) are supporting the president less.
The left seem to be in absolute denial that rational people could somehow disapprove of the president’s job performance. Promising 8% maximum unemployment if the Obama Stimulus package were passed is a huge reason voters believe the country is heading down the wrong path, where, they ask, are the jobs? Recently one of Obama’s chief economic advisors quit in arguments over extending the Bush tax cuts across the board. No serious economists are recommending any kind of tax increase (and, though Obama denies it, allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire even on one class of high-earners is, indeed, a tax increase) in the midst of a recession. One Obama strategist and pollster has openly questioned the president’s, the administration’s, the Democrats’ and the left’s tendency to denounce all dissenters from 100% approval of the president as “racists” saying that while this might have worked initially, it’s hurting the president across broad classes of voters.
The brunt of all these “racism” accusations, of course, is the so-called astro-turf (not a real grass-root movement according to Pelosi, Reid, Obama and Gibbs) TEA Party movement. Clearly, the TEA Party is the fastest growing and most active dynamic in America today. And what does the TEA Party movement object to in Barack Obama’s leadership that gets them repeatedly branded “racists?” Why does the TEA Party believe we’re going the wrong way?
1) Obama’s elitism (no business people or practical people are part of the inner circle at the White House) and surrounding himself with virtually nothing but academicians and lawyers.
2) Obama’s socialism (55% of Americans in a recent poll, said “socialist” was the right descriptor for the president) as indicated by takeovers of virtually 68% of the American economy and financial industries.
3) Obama’s radicalism as reflected in the make-up of his 38 czars and the white house staff consisting of so many radicals from the 60’s and 70’s and self-admitted communists.
4) Obama’s ineptitude in solving problems in jobs or the economy.
5) Obama’s refusal to listen to public opinion on matters like Obamacare and the borders.
6) Obama’s foolish stances on radical Islamic terrorism and seeming denial of the facts of a pretty simple matter seems to be endangering the country. "Man-caused disasters don't cut it, Mr. President."
7) Obama’s ignoring of our long-time allies and new coziness with our long-time enemies; and especially his “apology-tour.”
8) Obama’s cavalier attitude toward increasing taxes, government spending and government control; deficits, national debt and unfunded liabilities on the one hand . . . and toward violating both the letter and the spirit of the U.S. Constitution on the other hand . . . are in a nutshell, the single biggest uniter of the mainstream against him$$.
9) Obama’s redistributionist policies.
10) Obama’s fundamental transformation of America is NOT the change they hoped for when he was elected.
11) And, yes, it’s possible that up to 5% of the TEA Party actually are racists (though Rajjpuut has never seen even one such indication) who object to Obama’s color. However, while only 4% of Blacks voted for Mc Cain almost 48% of Whites voted for Obama (more than Kerry or Gore got) . . . so 97% of TEA Partiers really DO object to is being called “racists” by so many reverse-racists and the entire left-wing of the Democrats.
Ya’all live long, strong and ornery,
^^By the way, 82% of Blacks approve of the job Barack Obama’s doing while only 36% of White Americans do so . . . an incredible 46% perceptual divide by race (53% of Hispanics approve of Obama’s job performance).
** According to recent Rasmussen analysis 65% of the country now align with the mainstream and only 4% now align with the political class. If “leaners” are accounted for, 81% prefer a mainstream view and 12% see things much closer to the political class’ viewpoint.
Rasmussen has a measurable definition of the terms “mainstream” and “political class.” The numbers are arrived at by asking three questions, (the mainstream answer is underlined):
1. Generally speaking, when it comes to important national issues, whose judgment do you trust more - the American people or America’s political leaders?
2. Some people believe that the federal government has become a special interest group that looks out primarily for its own interests. Has the federal government become a special interest group? Yes!
3. Do government and big business often work together in ways that hurt consumers and investors? Yes!
To create the Rasmussen scale, each response earns a plus 1 for the mainstream answer, a minus 1 for the political class answer, and a 0 for not sure.
Those who score 2 or higher are considered a part of the Mainstream. Those who score -2 or lower are considered to be aligned with the Political Class. Those who score +1 or -1 are considered leaners in one direction or the other.
In practical terms, if someone is classified with the Mainstream, they agree with the mainstream view on at least two of the three questions and don’t agree with the Political Class on any.
After years of conducting these polls, Scott Rasmussen says, it’s his conclusion that Americans do NOT want to be governed from the left; do NOT want to be governed from the right; do NOT want to be governed from the midde; but rather “want to govern themselves.”
A Rajjpuut comment here: 83% of the political class are Democrats 15% are Independents or Unaffiliateds and just 2% are Republicans. In comparison, the makeup of the mainstream group is roughly 62% Republicans, 24% Independents and about 14% Democrats.
$$ In a liberal think-tank poll about ten days back, 55% of the voters said that "socialist" was an accurate descriptor for Barack Obama. It has taken 2.5 years for the populace to come to that opinion because the mainstream media (MSM) have protected and coddled Barack Obama and never properly vetted him, a courtesy that has never before been shown to any major American candidate. Rajjpuut knew early in 2008 that Barack Obama was a communist; that his mother Stanley Ann Dunham and grandfather Stanley Armour Dunham who raised him were communists; that his mentor, the poet Frank Marshall Davis was a communist; and that his Kenyan birthfather was such an abject and vocal communist, he could not hold a job in socialist Kenya. These are all facts the liberal MSM could have easily and should have uncovered for America's voters . . . . even Obama's first book "Dreams from My Father" was never vetted. The obvious question is "What were the dreams from Barak (no 'c') Hussein Obama, Sr.?" Here's the answer . . . .
from a magazine essay written when his son was about four years old. 100% taxation, confiscation of private land, forced communal farming, redistribution of wealth from the White and Asian Kenyans to the Black Kenyans, confiscation of foreign businesses, total economic planning in the hands of government, etc. etc. . . . these were the dreams from Barack, Jr.'s father . . . .
