June 29, 2007 — Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton was the runaway winner over the race’s lone black candidate in the Democratic debate, according to groups of African-American voters in Harlem and Washington, D.C.

In the nation’s capital, 33 undecided voters who identified themselves as people of color and who supported John Kerry in 2004 scored last night’s face-off an overwhelming victory for Clinton.

Twenty-seven participants gave the former first lady the nod, compared to just two who went with Barack Obama.

The voters, gathered in a focus group with GOP pollster Frank Luntz on the Howard University campus outside the debate hall, each evaluated the candidates with a “dial machine” linked to a computer – turning the knobs to the right to 100 for great answers, or to the left to 0 for bombs.

Clinton scored consistently in the 80s, while Luntz’s panelists panned Obama as flat.

Even though the participants preferred Clinton, they went gaga over Obama when he ducked into their viewing room after the debate – whipping out camera phones and posing for photos – with one woman shouting, “We’ll see you in the White House.”

“That’s the idea,” he responded.

The Harlem panel, organized by The Post, had a more mixed response but still leaned to Clinton.

Of 18 voters – eight of whom were truly undecided – six thought Clinton won, two people gave candidate John Edwards the edge, and one gave Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd a nod.

Just one viewer thought Obama won, while eight others picked one of the other of the eight candidates on stage.

“I would have liked to have heard [Obama] give more of [Clinton’s] answers,” said Ernestine Roach, a 66-year-old Harlem denizen who works for the Sanitation Department.

Thomas Donaldson, a 41-year-old lawyer supporting Obama, said, “I think [Hillary] spoke forcefully and with conviction . . . I don’t think it’s a measure of his candidacy. I just think she’s a better performer.”

But Corwin Breeden, 43 – the lone vote for Obama as the debate winner – disagreed, saying, “I think he answered the questions appropriately, and he understands the significance of what black people stand for in this election.”

Democratic Dinosaurs Turn D.C. into the Land That Time Forgot


With each passing day, Washington, D.C. is turning into the Land That Time Forgot.

While the rest of the country is dealing with the here and now — exemplified by Bush’s puny approval ratings and this new poll showing rural voters turning against the GOP’s handling of Iraq — the Beltway’s Democratic dinosaurs are acting like it’s 2002. For them, Bush still has credibility on Iraq, Democrats still need to tread lightly in opposing the war for fear of alienating red state and swing voters, and Iraq is still a right vs left issue.

Uh.  Darling?  Have you seen the approval ratings of CONgress recently?  GWB’s approval rating is TWICE that of CONgress.  Wake up, darling.  Wake up.

I have an area here sort of keeping up with polls.  There is one in particular which can be found here: it shows that cleary the majority of Americans are unhappy with CONgress and thew way the federal government is acting.  This explains why the government is so eager to develop a new voter pool by granting amnesty to MILLIONS of illegal aliens with no intentions of going after the law-breakers.

How important is a victory in Iraq?

Not sure and refused to answer: 5%

Not at all important: 19%

Not very important: 14%

Somewhat important: 26%

Very important: 35%

What does that mean?  Including the “not very important” with the “not at alls” and the “not sures”, the total is 39%.  Including the “somewhat importants” and the “very importants”, the total is 61%.  The 14% are the fence sitters.  Clearly,  the majority believe a victory is  important.

How hopeful are you that the US will be able to succeed in Iraq?

Not sure/refused to answer: 2%

Not at all hopeful: 21%

Not very hopeful: 22%

Somewhat hopeful: 28%

Very hopeful: 28%

The first two, totaling 23% would be the idiots and clearly not the majority.  The 22% would represent the other  idiots that listen to the Leftinistra Press.  The bottom two represents the majority of Americans that know a victory is a must.

Who would you like to see the president rely more on for advice on the conduct of the war?

Not sure/refused to answer: 7%

Congress: 23%

Field Commanders: 71%

Clearly, the majority don’t want CONGRESS messing with the war because they haven’t a clue.  There is only ONE CIC.

Which of the following must be a higher priority for the US?

Not sure/refused: 11%

Immediate troop withdrawal: 47%

Winning in Iraq: 42%

In Poll World, it is a draw.  Immediate troop withdrawal for various reasons is not given.  I am all in favor of creating glass factories of the region.

Would you agree the war is lost?

Unsure/refused to answer: 4%

Disagree strongly: 30%

Disagree somewhat: 24%

Agree somewhat: 18%

Agree strongly: 24%

Again, clearly, the majority see the need to become victorious.

Would you agree that the US is fighting a global war on terror?

Not sure: 5%

Disagree strongly: 16%

Disagree somewhat: 16%

Agree somewhat: 27%

Agree strongly: 38%

Again, the majority disagrees with Reid and Clan.

The rest of this poll and the overall results of the poll clearly show the MAJORITY of Americans disagree with the Reid/Pelosi control and that they are the reason the CONgress has the LOWEST approval rating in the history of our country.

Good job, morons.

GREAT Job Nancy and HAIRY!!


Collectively, these two IDGITS, has managed to abase the United States CONgress to an ALL time LOW of 14% approval.

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWW!!!

Where in the hell is Dean?

It “IS” all about the numbers.

WTG Mr Limpet and Stretch Face!! Now, there’s something to write home to mom about, eh? Morons. Majority of Americans on their side my ass.

Americans’ Confidence in Congress at All-Time Low

The percentage of Americans with a “great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in Congress is at 14%, the lowest in Gallup’s history of this measure — and the lowest of any of the 16 institutions tested in this year’s Confidence in Institutions survey. It is also one of the lowest confidence ratings for any institution tested over the last three decades.

 

Gallup’s annual update on Americans’ confidence in institutions shows that confidence ratings are generally down across the board compared with last year. The public’s confidence ratings in several institutions, including Congress, are now at all-time low points in Gallup’s history of this measure. These low ratings reflect the generally sour mood of the public at this time.

 

Of the 16 societal institutions tested in Gallup’s 2007 update, Americans express the most confidence in the military. They have the least confidence in HMOs and Congress. Americans have much more confidence in “small” business than in “big” business.

HA!  Their “approval ratings” are LOWER than the much hated Republican majority they were SO whining about!  BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!  Morons.

Does this mean we can impeach them now for lying to the American People?

Galluping To The Polls


 

Aren’t polls fun? The nuances are astoundingly…well…eclectic. I believed a poll one time. It “caused me” to cast my very first presidential election ever in my life for Jimmah Cahtah. Since that time (almost 2 years into his presidency) I have learned to laugh at polls. Someone I respect that does follow the polls said that they have evolved from those days of yore and are now more scientific.

Whatever.

I’ll stick to my original adage and watch the candidates and their poll-scramblers blow with the wind. The one that blows the least in a category 96 hurricane is the one I will vote for. Someone that changes stances according to how the winds blow is more brain-dead than the idiots that vote for the idiots blowing with the wind.

Whatever happened to personal integrity in this country?

<sigh>

The Gallup Pole:

PRINCETON, NJ — With no incumbent president or vice president running for the 2008 presidential nominations, it is perhaps not surprising that both of the major parties have competitive races, with multiple candidates jockeying for second, if not first, place. Still, the current outlines of voter preferences in the Republican and Democratic nomination battles are remarkably similar.

According to the latest USA Today/Gallup poll of national adults, conducted June 11-14, 2007, each race is characterized by a front-runner attracting about 30% of the potential primary vote nationwide, followed by two candidates garnering about 20% support each in a close contest for second place, and a slew of weaker candidates, each supported by no more than 11%.

Continuing the parallels, the race for second place in both parties features one announced candidate who has earned fairly steady support throughout the year (mostly failing to build momentum) and one unannounced candidate with growing support, just recently pulling into a tie for second.

THE POLLS ARE COMING! THE POLLS ARE COMING! THE POLLS ARE COMING!

THE POLLS ARE COMING! THE POLLS ARE COMING! THE POLLS ARE COMING!

THE POLLS ARE COMING! THE POLLS ARE COMING! THE POLLS ARE COMING!

THE POLLS ARE COMING! THE POLLS ARE COMING! THE POLLS ARE COMING!

I particularly like the phrase “national adults”. What is a “national adult”? Is that as opposed to an “international adult”? And what would be the difference?

That’s OK. Believe the polls if you like. I just find it “odd” that when the polls are in the favor of the Leftinistra, the polls are God’s gift to the Universe. When the polls are NOT in favor of the Leftinistra, the polls are skewed. What say ye? Feel free. I don’t bite much. Lost some of my teeth in Tajikistan a while back.

Raise Cain!


Town Hall is running a private survey. This might be worth signing up if you are not yet a member. It is free, anyhow. Here is the survey’s url:

http://www.therealdemocratstory.com/townhallsurvey/

This question is open ended, you can let them have it.

What is your best idea for defeating the Democrats in 2008?
My answer follows:
1. Select genuine Conservative candidates for all offices.
2. Run on genuine Conservative principles.
3. Point out ‘crat hypocrisy at every opportunity.
I am looking for a new party because the GOP has abandoned Conservatism by nominating and electing conmen instead of statesmen.

If enough of us slap them with the truth, the GOP might wake up, I ain’t holding my breath in anticipation, but this may be our best shot, besides withholding financial support.

Is It ANY Wonder?


The Leftinistra, the armies of the socialist liberals, make the LAME claim that they received a mandate of some sort back in 11/06 as well as making some bizarre claim to a landslide victory in the same elections.

 

First of all, what was the mandate and how do the Leftinistra calculate a landslide victory? One MUST wonder where their feelers are…yes?

 

With all that being said and their insistence that they have the pulse of America, how, then, do they explain this?

Approval of Congress lowest in a decade

Only about a quarter of Americans approve of how it’s doing its job, a poll shows; most see ‘business as usual.’

Something is amiss…yes? The vaunted majority in the CONgress has failed the American people. And which political party is in “control”? The Democrats? Mon dieu! Whom shall they blame for their failures? Will there be calls for impeachment? Censure? Special Prosecutors? Where is the outrage? Who’s to blame?Just 27% of Americans now approve of the way Congress is doing its job, the poll found, down from 36% in January, when Democrats assumed control of the House and the Senate.

And 63% of Americans say that the new Democratic Congress is governing in a “business as usual” manner, rather than working to bring the fundamental change that party leaders promised after November’s midterm election.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco), the first woman to hold that position, has also failed to impress many Americans. Only 36% approve of the way she is handling the job, the poll found.

And what is GWB’s rating right now? Isn’t it the SAME as Madame Stretch?

In contrast, 46% of Americans in the current poll said they approved of the way Speaker Newt Gingrich of Georgia handled the job after he led the GOP into the majority in 1994.

And the Leftinistra decry Newt as a what? His ratings are BETTER than the elite of the left!

The poll also found continued public unhappiness with President Bush, whose approval ratings have been stuck below 40% since last year.

Yet they are HIGHER than the Leftinistra. Imagine that.

Public disappointment with Congress swelled before Republicans lost power in November. Democrats swept in on promises to end the war and tackle a host of popular domestic issues, including raising the minimum wage, reducing prices on prescription drugs, promoting stem cell research and ending corruption.

Swept into power? And why was that? It was the dirty politics and the lies of the Leftinistra and the flip-flopping on issues that confused most and sickened others. And the Lame Stream Media fell lock-step in tune with the Leftinistra and enabled the lies and deceit. The Leftinistra lied and America has suffered because of it. All the Leftinistra wanted was power and control. What have they done with it? Not a damn thing.

Although some Democratic initiatives have passed the House, few have won passage in the Senate, where the party has held the majority by one vote.

So much for the vaunted majority. This is the LAMEST CONgress this veteran can remember and I voted for the very first time in 1973 and haven’t missed one since.

Bush and his Capitol Hill allies have thus far managed to block every Democratic attempt to force a withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq, much to the chagrin of Democrats around the country.

Not Democrats; bonehead…Leftinistra. Their IS a difference. The kook fringe freaks. The communist group A.N.S.W.E.R. and their moron counter-part Yellow Streak (formerly code pinko).

 

“They just haven’t seemed to have gathered things together the way they should,” said Martha Wilde, 81, a Democrat from Remer, Minn., who said she had been particularly disappointed in congressional Democrats’ lack of progress confronting the Bush administration over the war.

“I think they should force them more,” Wilde said.

They are unable to, Old One. They ran on lies and deceit.

 

A third of liberal Democrats, who constitute the party’s base, approve of the job Congress is doing; 58% disapprove, the poll found.

That’s a dramatic change from January, when a Los Angeles Times/Bloomberg poll found that 43% of liberal Democrats approved of the job Congress was doing and 36% disapproved.

Imagine that.

Representatives of Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said Democrats were undeterred by the public’s anger.

That is because THEY don’t listen to We The People, either. They listen to We The Freaks and Socialists.

“The American people are rightly frustrated with the ongoing war in Iraq, and Democrats will continue to work with Republicans to force the president to change direction in Iraq so our troops can come home and we can refocus our efforts on fighting terrorism,” said Pelosi spokesman Nadeam Elshami.

And this guy is a classic MORON. Talk about the WRONG reception to the “pulse” of America. The public angst, fool, is the lack of a VICTORY, moron. Cut and run is for cowards and fools and Leftinistra. Ask the troops. Check the chart at the end of this post as to how the MAJORITY of Americans feel about the Global War On Terror and the war in Iraq. Idiots.

The poll was conducted Thursday through Sunday; 1,183 adults were surveyed by telephone. The margin of error was plus or minus 3 percentage points.

Yadayadayadayada….

Here are the figures that the Leftinistra ignore and lie about. It proves that they lied to get into power.

This Is Why I Don’t Live By The Pollsters


This Is Why I Don’t Live By The Pollsters

US News and World Report

Startling Republican Numbers  (only if you live by the poll)

There are some startling numbers on Scott Rasmussen’s weekly national poll on the Republican race for president. Rudy Giuliani continues to be in first place, but with 23 percent of the vote, the lowest percentage he’s gotten all year. Roughly tied for second place are Fred Thompson (17), Mitt Romney (15), and John McCain (14). I wouldn’t put too much stock in the fact that Thompson is second and McCain fourth; the numbers are a statistical tie. More interesting is the trend over the course of the year. For the following table I’ve averaged Rasmussen’s results for each month (with the numbers reported May 1 counted as April numbers, since that’s when the interviewing took place).

  Giuliani Thompson Romney McCain
June 23 17 15 14
May 25 14 14 17
April 29 13 11 16
March 35   9 16
February 31   9 18
January 29   9 20

These numbers confirm my intuitive sense of the flow of the race. Giuliani surged in February and March, then fell back as Thompson’s name appeared on the list. The lead he has now is anything but commanding. Thompson, who raised his first money yesterday, clearly is competitive. Romney has been on an upswing, but of limited scope. McCain has been falling, but not precipitously; he had a slight uptick in May, not statistically significant but coinciding with his spirited defense of the surge in Iraq.

My sense is that the numbers in the Republican race are considerably more fluid than those on the Democratic side; the national poll numbers seem to indicate this. Republicans this cycle, like Democrats in 2003-04, clearly have the sense that their party is in grave danger of losing and are seeking a candidate who they think can win. That has helped Giuliani. But the poll numbers in Iowa and New Hampshire, where Romney has averaged a slight lead, and South Carolina, where McCain has had a slight lead, indicate that Giuliani may have a rough path to the nomination. As for the contest in Florida on January 29, Giuliani starts off with a lead that looks a lot like his lead in national polls, which is not surprising considering that Florida is too large for effective retail campaigning and no one was concentrating on it much until it shifted to the January 29 date.

Stephen Hayes, who’s been covering the nascent Thompson campaign closely, reports that Thompson is going to target Florida. Will Giuliani’s lead hold up there?

Opinion Polls? LOL!!!


Opinion Polls? LOL!!!

Wednesday, May 02, 2007 2:27 PM

Where are the opinion polls that state the “majority” of Americans want defeat in Iraq?

Where are the opinion polls that state the “majority” of Americans want immediate withdrawal from Iraq?

Where are the opinion polls that state the “majority” of Americans think the GWOT is lost?

Where are the opinion polls that reid, pelosi and their ilk refer to?

If the “majority” of Americans desire such things and the reids, et al, say, then why are their “landslide victories” so slim to none?

If the “majority” of Americans are truly represented by CONgress, why then, is the “approval ratings” of CONgress at 36%?

Why are the weak-kneed, thin-skinned whiners so out of touch with the “majority”?

What are the questions pollsters ask and why aren’t they published so all can see the questions purporting to be the “pulse” of the nation?

Who were the questions asked of?

The “change” in direction is the GWOT,  namely Iraq at the moment, is towards victory and not defeat.  Our troops want to win and they are winning as reports flooding in so state.  The “change” in direction is a move forward and release the troops to do the jobs they are capable of and so desire to accomplish.  THAT is the “change” in direction.

The Leftinistra have lied to the American people to obtain their positions.  They stated that they would NOT cut and run and that is EXACTLY what they are trying to do at this moment as they vote to override the President’s veto.  Naturally, they will lose.

The Leftinistra are a pathetic lot.
