You start a new poll thread every time Obama is down.

A few days later, Obama goes back up.

My....look how many poll threads YOU start.

Oh....polls are posted for the record, especially that fantastic CBS/NYT 41% approval poll.

If you search for "poll" in the title of threads I started ... you will find just 5 poll threads over the past 3 years.

Do the same search on yourself, and you find a whopping 106 poll threads started by you !!!

Ahh...look, you set your profile to "friends" only.

Lucky for us, the search function still works.

I like polls and you seem to like them too....when they show your president up.

But THIS poll, the CBS/NYT @ 41% approval, has obama and his supporters very worried.

As long as pollsters take them, they should be part of the record and publicized. If you don't like poll threads, I'm sure there are other threads for you to post in.

You don't need to view a profile to search for threads started by that member. Advanced search works just fine.

"Liking" polls is one thing .... posting a new thread every time one comes out is another.

As I already stated ... you started 106 poll threads in the just past 3 years.

Polls change like the weather .... one day it's raining ... the next day it's sunny.

Any minor news event can cause a poll to go up or down a few points. It's absolutely ridiculous to spend so much time watching them.

The only poll that matters is in November.

Yup. Obama is up by 8 points against all GOP challengers in Virginia. He's doomed!!!

Not really. A single poll - or even a couple of them doesn't mean Jack. LOTS of them? Well, THEN it starts to have meaning.
