      The link has already been pulled.  Someone at Fox must have realized that they had actually reported something truthful.

      Heads will roll!

    It's working for me now.  I must've made a mistake in the formatting, so I did it the simple way.  Does it work for anyone else?

          Yes. We're comparing the political parties to the IRS. 42% < 49%.

    CBS has the POTUS at 44%, with only 34% approving of his handling of health care.

      Yep, last I heard was 43% approval for Obama also.  I think the difference here, though, is the poll up there that had Obama at 50% was "favorable" and not "approval".  Maybe I'm wrong, but I think it shows that 50% of respondents "like"  him (maybe as a person and not necessarily as a politician), but not that many "approve" of the way he's doing his job.
