Apparently, the left isn't interesting in stats (polling numbers) anymore, so I'm sure they'll dismiss any stats I look up just as easily. "Give him more time", or "Look beyond the poll numbers" would be a typical retort.

You're right, six months is way plenty long enough to fix the messes Bush left behind. They're not fixed yet and we're getting impatient! Why hasnt he fixed them, what's he been doing all this time? Oh, right: he's been partying and posing for magazine covers.

Where on earth do you people get the idea that conservatives don't want Obama to succeed? It's the trampling on the Constitution and his determination to minimize, or take away, basic freedoms that we don't like and won't stand for.

I am a fiscal and social conservative who didn't like George Bush's policies any more than I like Obama's. His administration, especially the second term was a disaster and Obama's looks to be even worse if the two sides can't come together in the best interests of the American people. And that's where the problems lie...in being so set on pushing their own agendas that the will of the people, and what's truly best for the country, gets lost. Both parties are guilty!

We should start off wishing every President well and hope that he governs with a respect for the laws of the land and a true willingness to do what's in the best interest of the country as a whole - not to the benefit of special interests or the promotion of a single party. We haven't had that, not in Bush or in Obama.

But if you factor that in they're pretty reliable. And the frequency that Rasmussen is able to turn them around -- because they're based on robocalls -- gives them added value in terms of teasing out trends." [12]

Why not! They've got nothing to lose, except maybe popular support.

Exactly. Watch also for the word "racist" to be hurled at those who disagree with anything Obama does. Its a shaming word used to silence dissent. Fortunately people are seeing through it, and the word is losing all coherent meaning through overuse and misapplication.
