Have you caught sight of that absolutely amazing CNN poll celebrating The One (elect)’s popularity? It’s up there with GWB after 9/11, which made me just a little curious.
You do realize the fawning media must create a base where The One (elect)’s popularity is just as high as GWB’s was at his highest point. If not, they have failed in their mission to make The One (elect) the end all and be all.
The poll also suggests that 68 percent of those questioned are personally “thrilled or happy” that Obama will soon be inaugurated as president, 18 points higher than the way people felt in the days before President Bush’s second inauguration four years ago.
Expectations for Obama’s speech Tuesday appear to be quite high, with 85 percent predicting that his speech will be excellent or good. That’s 24 points higher than the 61 percent who felt the same way about Bush’s first inauguration speech in 2001. Nine out of 10 African-Americans questioned in the poll say Obama’s election is a dream come true. Six in 10 also say they’re thrilled by Obama’s impending inauguration. Only a quarter of white respondents feel the same way.
Virtually every African-American in the survey says it is likely he or she will watch Tuesday’s ceremonies on TV. Fifty-seven percent of whites say they are likely to do the same. Virtually every African-American interviewed approves of how Obama has handled the transition.
“But there is a note of caution that tempers blacks’ enthusiasm about an Obama presidency,” Holland said. “Most of them say the American public will hold Obama to a higher standard than past presidents because he is black. Most whites say that Obama’s race will not matter in how he will be judged as president.”
The CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll was conducted from January 12 to 15 with 1,245 adult Americans, including 798 whites and 332 African-Americans, questioned by telephone. The survey’s sampling error is plus or minus 3 percentage points for the overall responses and plus or minus 5.5 percentage points for the questions broken down by race. …”
This is one of the cheesiest polls I’ve seen in ages. But then, CNN will do just about anything to make their anointed messiah look good. That’s like the one the just released slaughtering GWB.
“…The CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll was conducted from January 12 to 15, with 1,245 adult Americans questioned by telephone. The survey’s sampling error is plus or minus 3 percentage points for some questions and 4.5 percentage points for others…”
So, how many of those brain-dead Obama-lovers were Republicans?
What a crock
