    Wow. Just a couple posts up, you dismissed the poll because of its methodology. Your words:
    Wow, indeed. There's a difference between METHODOLOGY and SAMPLE BASE. Basic rules of statistics tell us (yes, you and me) that the LARGER the sample base, the MORE STATISTICALLY VALID it is. THAT was the point I made. Get it?

    Gallup is not my bag; A.C. Nielsen and Arbitron ARE. I'm somewhat familiar with statistics and "ratings" (a kind of poll, indeed) and what it takes for them to be valid. Data is great, but the INTERPRETATION of that data in many ways comes down to OPINIONS. Having spent just short of 30 years in the media sales business, I'm reasonably sure I know my way around polls and how they can be "manipulated" and "sold" as the gospel.

    Do you believe everything you see on the evening news? Me either....but I do live in a mid-sized population area (Nielsen DMA #86) and I know what we are up against. Poll results don't make everyone else feel one bit better UNLESS they were one of those people polled.

    My very simple question for you backpasture is if you and I were having a beer and bsing would you look me in the eye and tell me you are excited about what Obama and Congress are doing?

    Polls, shmolls, they are just numbers so what if 51% approve of this I don't think 75% of the people are responsible enough to care for my dogs if I needed them to when I was gone.
    Some people dream of success, while others wake up and work hard for it.

    I'm excited! PEBO will end up taking 70-90% of my income just to pay for all these bills.

    Got to love them dems and big Gov.

    So basically its OK for THE GREAT ONE to waste my money but by gosh he's going to make sure nobody wastes the money he is already stealing from me.
    He is an idiot at best and a criminal at worst...we will soon find out which.

    What I can say is this. 60+% of the Obama supportors approve of the job he's doing....

    Polls and numbers don't tell the whole story....
