Even though this is a Faux News poll ....I doubt it will get much play on Hannity , Beck or the BillO the clown show.

Look at that approval rating:

Approve-62%

Disapprove-29%


Quote:
most people say Obama is doing a better job than they expected (26 percent) or meeting expectations (56 percent). Few say he is doing worse than expected (16 percent)
That 16% are all teabaggers...a troubled minority they are.

Obama winning converts:

Quote:
The poll also finds that 73 percent think Obama is honest and trustworthy, up from 60 percent in October 2008.
Quote:
Furthermore, more people today see Obama as a "doer" (43 percent) than a "talker" (30 percent), a reversal from pre-election polling when more people saw him as a talker (49 percent) rather than a doer (34 percent).
Quote:
Most Americans -- 69 percent -- say they are satisfied with what Obama has accomplished in his first 100 days

Yup. Most Americans approve of Obama.
The Obamabashers just talk real loud and more or less constantly.
Once the economy begins to improve (which I believe it will shortly) then Obama's numbers will go up even more.

Not sure about your angle here Upton. Are you jabbing Fox News for conducting a poll and releasing the results truthfully? Apparently you are watching Fox News now ..... or you wouldn't know about their poll.


Shouldn't you be glued to MSNBC?


How do you know that the 16% that disapprove are tea baggers? Was that part of the poll, or did you make that up?

I don't enjoy right wing propaganda so I don't normally watch Faux News. I know about the poll because this is the internet, remember?

Logic dictates that those that approve of Obama aren't teabaggers...therefore, they have to come from the percentage that disapprove.

Logic dictates (your words) that if FOX News is right wing propaganda then they either would never have released that poll or would have changed the polls results to meet right wing needs.

Faux News is in a continual battle to attain some credibility as a news organization. They can't afford to have their polls differ significantly from other more dependable sources.

So they're not a right win propaganda machine when they release something you agree with.

Fox News continually beats MSNBC and CNN combined in viewership. It is not a matter of being able to afford anything.

Please state which media sources are more dependable and why.

Why do you call them faux news?
They actually got the information, asked everyday people, not people who were obv right wing, and then didn't hide the info.
