Newsweek Poll Says Obama Approval Rating Jumps Over 50% & Democrats Close ‘Enthusiasm Gap’ … Wanna Bet!


Oh yeah, this is believable …

The Democrat state run liberal media outlet Newsweek states in their most recent poll that Barack Obama’s approval rating at 54%. Newsweek also claims that the enthusiasm gap has narrowed as well. So when all else fails and Democrats are on the verge of colossal losses in the 2010 midterm elections, as also stated at Hot Air, the Obama media just makes up self-serving polls. This favorable Obama and Democrat poll brought to you by the same people who said … We Are All Socialists Now.”

Despite doom-saying about Democrats’ chances in the midterms, the latest NEWSWEEK Poll (full results) shows that they remain in a close race with Republicans 12 days before Election Day, while the president’s approval ratings have climbed sharply. The poll finds that 48 percent of registered voters would be more likely to vote for Democrats, compared with 42 percent who lean Republican (those numbers are similar to those in the last NEWSWEEK Poll, which found Democrats favored 48 percent to 43 percent). President Obama’s approval ratings have jumped substantially, crossing the magic halfway threshold to 54 percent, up from 48 percent in late September, while the portion of respondents who disapprove of the president dropped to 40 percent, the lowest disapproval rating in a NEWSWEEK Poll since February 2010.

The far fetched poll can be seen here.

Maybe Big Bird can Help out Newsweek


The Newsweek joke poll could never bee more evident than going to Real Clear politics to see the polling averages of numerous polls on Obama job approval and the Congressional Generic ballot. Obama has an average approval rating of 46.3% and a disapproval of 48.3%. Reviewing the polling data, reminds me a a Sesame Street skit of one of these things doesn’t belong here. The same thing can be said regarding the Congressional Generic ballot, Newsweek is the only poll that does not have a GOP lead let alone a  double digit lead for the GOP.

Hard to believe the bias Newsweek poll when the Rasmussen Presidential index is at -19% and 45% approval, 54% disapproval rating.  More polling data is posted at Wake Up America that proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Newsweek poll is an outlier. So this is what the LEFT has been reduced to, making up contrived polling data to provide the perception that Democrats are gaining ground in the polls. The the state rum media propagandists stop at nothing?

      State owned media seems to behave exactly as
      the ‘administration’ prescribes. Anita Dunn emphasized
      the importance of managing the press in order to
      control the flow of information. Thank God for the
      Fox News Network for paddling against the stream
      of propaganda flooding the minds of the hard working

      Figures don’t lie but liars do figure — or maybe a more updated aphorism would be: garbage in garbage out.

      Objectivity at Newsweek is as passe as a slide rule.

      The Newsweek poll is the only accurate poll out there right now.
      No other pollsters include cell phone only users in there data.

      Since 20% of voters only have cell phones (no land lines) pollsters such as gallup and rasmussin do not have complete data.

      therefore, Newsweek has the most accurate poll because they include a demographic overlooked by others.
      SM: Oh yea, really accurate … are you watching the election results tonight?
