‘when one bad poll for obama = big news’

MediaMatters: A new poll from Quinnipiac University is making headlines this week. Why? Because it shows Obama’s approval rating at a low point of 42 percent. And when a single poll (and possibly outlier) shows Obama’s approval rating going down, that’s news!

News organizations all agree: The Quinnipiac poll is a big deal. But for context, here’s a look at all the Obama approval rating polling results currently listed at PollingReport.com, for the month of March:

CBS: 49%
CNN: 51%
Fox: 49:%
CNN: 50%
ABC/Washington Post: 51%
Allstate/National Journal: 49%
Bloomberg: 51%
Ipsos/Reuters: 49%

And here’s a very recent result, not listed by PollingReport.com:

Gallup: 49% (see today’s poll)

For the month of March, Obama’s approval rating has been quite consistent (average: 50%), just as it’s been for nearly the last 18 months. But when the Quinnipiac poll came out and broke with that trend, and broke with the trend in a negative direction, suddenly that single poll was big news.

Thank you for the link majii 😉

his approval rating is tanking! oh….maybe not

CBS: President Obama’s overall job approval rating has risen in a new CBS News Poll, showing 3 percent more Americans feel he’s doing a good job than did a month earlier.

According to the survey conducted by phone between Nov. 29 and Dec. 2, 48 percent of Americans approve of Mr. Obama’s job handling, up from 45 percent in November.

Approval among independents has risen, also, from 40 percent last month to 45 percent now.

Americans also seem more optimistic about the country’s economic outlook than they have been for months. According to the new poll, 31 percent believe the economy is getting better, the highest number since April.

A whopping 82 percent said they favor the idea of the U.S. and Russia coming to an agreement to limit nuclear weapons, a huge show of support for the Obama administration’s push to have Congress ratify the new START treaty, which is being held up by Congressional Republicans. Only 12 percent of those questioned in the latest CBS News Poll said they were against such a treaty.
