An Editorial with Numbers
"The Associated Press is up to its old tricks again. In its latest doom and gloom piece, “Poll: Groups Unhappy with Bush Performance,” they report that the president’s approval rating dropped to 39% in the most recent AP/Ipsos poll. Add to that today’s CBS poll that has the number at 37% and Bush supporters might have reason to squirm…except that they don’t.
As is usual, these anti-Bush organizations under-poll Republicans while over-polling Democrats. The AP survey contained only 40% Republicans versus 48% Democrats, while the CBS boys tilted the playing field an amazing 43% to 57% in favor of the Dems.
A further dig into the AP/Ipsos numbers reveals just who is being polled. Of the “average” folks interviewed, only 50% were employed full-time, 47% had a combined household income under $50,000 a year and most curiously, 20%--or double the national level--claimed no religious affiliation."
These must be the same "average folks" who attended the War Protests.
