Deflection.

Among Obama's constituents he has a very poor approval rating. Obama would struggle to get reelected with his dishonesty.

Among individual congress members' constituents most have an approval rating in positive territory, which is why over 90% will get re-elected in both the House and Senate and both parties.

.
Irrelevant because Obama isn't getting reelected. And just because key constituent groups may be disappointed in the President's performance, doesn't mean that they're going to turn to the GOP, who has even lower ratings and have rather unpopular policy stances to boot.

In November, Obama stood at 40% and 41% in three different CNN Poll of Poll compilations. The President's approval rating reached new lows or tied his all-time lows in six individual national surveys last month, including CNN-ORC International. While Obama's at 38% in the new Quinnipiac poll, down a point from last month and an all-time low for him in their surveys, he's up five points from last month to 42% in the new CBS News/New York Times survey, up four points from November to 45% in the new Pew Research Center/USA Today poll, and he's edged up a point since last month to 43% in the new NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey
Shhhhhhhh... don't confuse the wingnuts with facts, they have their OWN reality.

The Q poll was released on Dec 10th and was widely reported on the 10th. CNN buried it deep on the 11th after everyone else had already reported it.

In fact, I waited a full day before starting the thread to see if they reported it, and they hadn't so I posted it.

That makes me right, and you and your colleagues wrong. As always.

When you folks get something right for once, let me know.

It's pretty significant that nearly 60% of American's disapprove of Barack Obama, but yet we get nothing from CNN? For the first time this year, voters want a Republican Majority over a Democratic Majority in 2014, and yet we get nothing from CNN?

Absolutely disgusting.

I watch MSNBC at times and they were all over Obama's low ratings.

Let's see, you JUST stated that you "waited a full day before starting this thread to see if they reported it, and they hadn't so I posted it".
Well, as you just mentioned, CNN reported it on the 11th (possibly even on the 10th, but we KNOW that it was AT LEAST by the 11th) and you started this thread on the 13th - soooooo you just LIED when you just now posted "In fact, I waited a full day before starting the thread to see if they reported it, they hadn't so I posted it"????????

If you started this thread on the 13th and "waited a full day...before starting this thread" and CNN clearly put up the article already linked to on the 11th - then you either just lied or you live in some alternate reality where the 13th comes before the 11th.

Which is it?
REALLY waiting to hear your explanation for that one.

Lying again?
That's TWICE in 2 posts.

Everyone out there can see the start date for this thread and it says "12-13-2013, 08:16 AM" (the time could possibly vary based on the viewers time zone).

And BTW, CNN did report on the poll in question on the 10th - so your entire premise for this thread is wrong, wrong, wrong (but what else is new?):

Obama at 42% approval in new average of latest polls – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs

So, even if you HAD started this thread on the 11th, you are still wrong when you said CNN had not mentioned it.
