pretty polls

Steve Benen:

* On a generic congressional ballot, a new Gallup poll shows Democrats leading Republicans, 51% to 44%. It’s the biggest leads Dems have had in about three years.

* On a related note, Public Policy Polling also shows Democrats with a seven-point lead on the generic-ballot question, 47% to 40%.

* In North Carolina, PPP shows President Obama leading all of his top Republican presidential challengers, by margins ranging from three points (vs. Romney) to 13 points (vs. Cain and Palin).

* In Colorado, PPP also shows the president leading the top GOP contenders, by margins ranging from seven points (vs. Romney) to 16 points (vs. Cain and Palin).

    The people are seeing what the Tearepubs are doing to this country. They want the rich to pay their fair share. I believe the more that the Tearepubs and the PL lie about the President the more people will see the truth. We are all not going to let them change this country!

    Well guys, we all know what the new outrage is. The President doesn’t deserve a vacation, so the corrupt press/media will pile on that when he leaves for his vacation with his family.

    The fact that the do nothing criminals in congress are on vacation for 5 weeks is fine though.

    Does #Obama Deserve a Vacation? A Majority of Political Gurus Say No Way thebea.st/qEhcRb by @TheLloydGrove

      Political Gurus= high paid nutbags with no leadership responsibilities. Political Gurus should go fuck themselves.
      There is such a thing called burn out. If one doesn’t take time to relax and decompress, burn out occurs. Perhaps Politcal Fucktards should aim their barbs at the House of Reptiles who have 5 weeks paid vacation and only work two weeks out of every month. Political Fucktards are disgusting bastards.

      Great, great polls.

      A little OT, and you may have seen this but this is very interesting. Now that Perry is running, a whole lot of stuff about him is coming to light. I am praying hard that this man never see the White House.

    Good news. I hope things keep looking up for PBO and the dems. As more and more people are exposed to the mess that is the teaparty and how their faction in congress wants to basically shred the fabric of America because they fundamentally hate President Obama; the more people will shy away from them.

    These polls demonstrate the veracity of the parable: “The Tortoise and the Hare”.

    The absolutely most stunning aspect of those polls is they are at this level while all around us is the pounding of fists of pundits, leftists, racists, peepartiers, black revolutionists, etc., etc., to excoriate the President. Yet he keeps grinding to save them. Pity the fools who won’t wake up, (figuratively, because I pity them not). I am awaiting their demise. Shall be praying ever fervently.

    I am very encouraged by these polls. (funny how I only believe polls when they are good news) but nevertheless, I feel better than I have in weeks. 🙂

      That would be all of us. I agree with them when they are positive and when they aren’t there is some type of skewing going on. Comes with the territory of WANTING so desperately for PBO to succeed. 😉
