    Haven't we learned anything about Polls from the election. BTW, it shouldn't matter to anyone what the polls indicate or don't indicate. You have your own judgement with your own observations, brain, and opinion. Like the loyal party voter, relying on polls is a lot like being loyal sheep to your political party.

    I have always been leary of polls. My opinion is that any sort of accuracy is really the result of people using the poll results to replace their opinions with those of the poll. It is social reengineering where the polls don't monitor the opinions of the larger group, but actually control it. A few thousand people being polled on national issues can't possibly be accurate to any real margin of error.
    If it was possible to get this information from a poll, it would indicate that we don't have any independent thinking, and we are all the same across the country.

    Have you ever tried to have a small group of your workers or friends to agree on where to go to lunch? This would be an indication of why polls don't work.

    What makes it work is that many people avoid controversy, so they adopt the popular view, rather then voice their true opinions. This is common with passive aggressive.

    So I would ? anyone that has to use the poll to answer this ?
    I really don't care about the poll either if it agrees or disagrees with my personal opinion, which is I think he is doing a great job, and he could do a better job if people would stop trying to make him fail.

    del if u wish.

      Grace, what do you really know about the details of that poll. What questions were asked of what people. How many, demographics, how did they vote in the election, what criteria was used for doing the job, what specifics were asked, etc.

    Two recent polls both had him over 50%
    http://www.gallup.com/poll/201617/gallu … roval.aspx
    He is at 55% on the gallup
    http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_ … rack_feb13
    He is at 52% on Rasmussen
    So... I guess its what poll you are looking at, personally I don't put much stock in polls.  I think they are only somewhat reflective, people could say they don't think he is doing a great job... but they would still vote for him over someone they feel would be significantly worse.
    As things stand now, I think more people would vote for him today, than voted for him two months ago.  All the rioting, insane ranting in Congress, and constant media assaults on him only make him more favorable with the majority of Americans, not less.

    I think we have learned enough about polls this past election,  and can no longer trust that they are accurate. Sad to think so many have come to believe pure propaganda.
