    CNN Poll: Country split on how things are going

    49% say things are very or fairly well
    51% say pretty or very badly

    sounds decent right ? it's up a couple points from November polling ........ but wait

    More than six in ten said the country was doing well when Presidents Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan had their second inaugurations, with 58% feeling that way when President George W. Bush started his second term in 2005."
    conventional wisdom suggests the guy running the country might try to unite people right ?

    yeah

    Of course this completely overlooks the years of financial collapse that followed Bush's 2nd term.

    "conventional wisdom suggests the guy running the country might try to unite people right ?"

    Is this another swipe at the President?

    What do you think Mittzy and Lyin' brown noser Paul Ryan are doing this weekend? Certainly not at any victory parties.

    Conventional wisdom would actually dictate that the minority party would encourage their supporters to work with the majority party to compromise and make things better instead of trying to use fear to divide them. The only reason things in this country aren't better are because you've had a party of roadblocks to anything meaningful occurring. Also, make sure to note that this isn't a poll on Obama and anything he has done. It's a poll on the condition of the country, which I believe Republicans have had a huge hand in creating and maintaining in its currently poor state.

    A poll that doesn't even apply to the President at that. It also makes the incorrect assumption that the President is responsible for everything that goes on in the country.

    i'm missing the "riddled" part - i imagine anyone would miss it as it doesn't exist

    ridĚdle 1 (rdl)
    tr.v. ridĚdled, ridĚdling, ridĚdles
    1. To pierce with numerous holes; perforate: riddle a target with bullets.
    2. To spread throughout: "Election campaigns have always been riddled with demagogy and worse" (New Republic).
    3. To put (gravel, for example) through a coarse sieve.

    i think the "way over sensitive" part is much more likely

    as for the poll, the timing and context is the inauguration of SECOND TERM presidents tigerfan - it's a short link - read it again

    That's great and all except that context still has no relation to the president or his approval or policies. The only tie in it has is that the time period the poll was taken corresponded to the second term inauguration. Other than that, there is no correlation at all between the results of the poll and the President or his policies.

    you're fighting an uphill battle here tiger

    1 - cnn thinks o/w - they're an established news organization - hard for you to say with any oomph that they don't know what they're doing

    2 - the leader of a country - in our case our president - is the "go to" for how are things going - it's part of the gig

    who else would it be ?

    1) No one is arguing the results of the survey. However, the survey was gauging how people view the current status of the country, not how people currently view the President.

    2) There are so many factors that figure in to peoples' views on the country that it would be hard to list them here. The President has VERY little to do with just about all of them. A dysfunctional Congress, greedy private sector, slow growing middle class wages, rising prices - these are all contributors to how people view the current state of the country. I know you are just aching to blame this all on the President, but you're the one who is actually fighting an uphill battle, because you're trying to overlay your biases on these poll results.

    not sure why you're splitting hairs

    the Pres. approval rating last i looked was 51%

    so you're barking at the moon

    as for me and you getting in my head ...... with words like "aching to blame" ..... "overlaying your biases" .....

    again an overreach well beyond your paygrade (to quote a ce+p regular)

    That's nicely described by the term "loyal opposition" used by a number of parliamentary systems (e.g. the UK). Since Grover Norquist got his claws into the process, the U.S. no longer has a loyal opposition, just an opposition.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    That is an interesting take on poll numbers because the President was re-elected with 51.1% of the popular vote which is more in line with the polls you call rubbish then the so-called reputable ones that you talk about.

    That's really the bottom line.

    The American people resoundingly stated that Obama offered superior ideas, performance and policy than the Republicans were offering.

    No clue what point Chance is trying to make with this study-- I think we all know what he's driving at-- but it's all irrelevant since any claim he's trying to make that Americans see the present in a negative light is obviously not something they blame Obama for, and they voted accordingly.

    I never believe in national polls on economic/political questions because 99.9% of the people have NO IDEA what's going on. How can a poll reflect anything if thepeople are randomly casting their ballot?

    You shouldu really ask around to see how often people know what they're voting for. I worked in the campaign for that 2 presidential elections and a congressional election against Bachmann with Clark. I was astonished how little anybody knew about anything. I don't think that I heard one person say anything intelligent for or against any candidate.

    Meh. I guess everybody sees things differently. I guess that's why I said that I don't trust these polls based on what I've seen. If you have seen something different, by all means, accept the statistics.

    Re: CNN Poll: Country split on how things are going

    I think you're both looking at it in a different way.

    The poll's just basically "do you think the country's in a good state"... kind of just an opinion question. So in that sense an answer can't really be wrong.

    Opinions can, of course, be very misinformed. That's true. I doubt if most Americans could give a coherent and meaningful description of WHY things are either good or bad, based on their answer.

    That being said I think the OP was making a very specific political argument with this thread, and his position isn't validated by the poll, as Just_Believe18 and others pointed out.

    If your opinion doesn't match mine, xbuzzerx, you're automatically wrong

    Another thing that I have with such opinion poles is because people get emotional. I see people who complain about the economy, but who go out there and blow their moneyon stupid crap all the time. Then, you have people like me, who work hard and, at the end of the day, end up with quite a bit of money in savings, who are doing fairly well. I'm not necessarily saying that this is in the scope of this particular pole, but people are just stupid.

    Re: CNN Poll: Country split on how things are going

    There is no nation on the planet that has a huge majority of people who are “informed.” It’s extremely ill “informed” to bitch about how ill “informed” voters are. It’s ignorance to think that politics functions on accurate information - it never has, no where, at no time in history has that ever been the case. Even people who know the “facts” are swayed by emotion and perception – in fact you’d be hard pressed to find two “informed” voters who agree on what “fact” is. Even with it staring both of them in the face.

    Frankly the “informed” voters are the most likely to rigidly adhere to their emotions and perceptions and call them facts than anyone else.

    An OPINION poll is just that – and an OPINION poll is not trying to be a scholarly study, and since the people polled are the people in the electorate – feel as pretentious, superior, and precious as one likes – that’s pretty fucking relevant to the state of political OPINIONS in the country.

    So long as we can agree on methodology of course. (grin)

    I agree with your first sentence when you say that no country has a majority of the citizens that are informed. However, you contradict yourself in your second sentence by saying that it's ill informed to "bitch" about this? Firstly, nobody was bitching, secondly what is that even supposed to mean? That's like saying that a cancer specialist is ill informed because the general populous, who knows hardly anything about cancer, makes uninformed claims about cancer. At least, that's what I have interpreted based on what you wrote. Maybe you meant something different, but it's not clear.

    Other than that, I agree with most of what you said, especially about people being emotionally persuaded to beleive many things. I have also noted that and catch myself doing that often. Being aware of our emotions is a good way to separate ourselves from those who are unwilling to admit it, in my opinion. I know many liberals who follow the whole emotional movement that is based solely on emotion rather than reasons because that's what progressivism seems to be based on these days. A good example of that would be socialism (whole 'nother topic that I don't want to dive into in this thread). I don't believe that socialism is a good thing, overall, even though emotionally, I wish it were.

    Opinion polls are opinion polls, I agree, but you must realize that more often than not, they are used for political purposes and often misrepresented in media (Fox news anyone?). Maybe it's just me, but I tend to read these polls then just take a complete memory dump of it and throw it aside as BS. Call me crazy.

    To illustrate what I'm trying to say, I have a few examples when I was told to give my opinion on a topic that I wasn't very well informed in. I told them, "I don't really know enough information to give a good opinion" to which I was told that it's just an opinion. I seem to have a rather different view of what having an opinion should be. Sure, if something is, "What's your favorite color"? I will readily reply to. When it starts to become more educated, I tend to step back and check myself .

    I do know that it's not 1929 -- but I wonder if you do.

    We have to deal with today's problems and issues. I know you're smart enough not to blindly follow someone -- why do that with Obama?

    Because today's problems and issues are a direct result of things done in the past. The situation people are in today, which is directly related to how they would answer that opinion poll question, is a result of past administrations and past legislative action (or inaction.) In government, what's happening today is a result of the additive effects of actions that were taken years ago in addition to the actions being taken now. What actions are taken now won't be fully realized until years down the road. That fact can't be ignored when reading the results of opinion polls. If you don't learn from the past (or just choose to pretend it never happened), then you are indeed doomed to repeat it.

    Of course...probably most people would also lay a lot of the blame at the feet of the Legislative Branch.

    But I suppose you think it is all about the guy you hate in the White House.

    You're not listening. Accept that Obama is our President. He's been elected twice. He's in charge. Along with all the gloss and glamour comes responsibility. Obama is the big man in Washington -- leader of the free world.

    I get the feeling that somehow many liberals cannot accept that Obama is President -- they're happy he got elected but somehow lack the faith that he can get the job done or accept responsibility for his actions. I'm just not sure how to express it.

    And the liberal bias of CNN is equally well established. They weren't called the Clinton News Network for naught.

    Any point Chance THOUGHT he was making by bringing up this poll failed because it wasn't a survey on how the President was doing (which was obviously what he was trying to correlate with the poll on inauguration day) and because a lot of the state of the country people are unhappy with are because of 8 years of Republican policy that nearly collapsed our economic system and skyrocketed our debt on two wars which were completely unpaid for.

    Seeing as how you think Obama should do everything, I need to remind you that Congress needs to wake up and go to work. I got an email today for a petition to be signed to tell Congress No budget, No pay.

    Dear [member of Congress],

    Deciding how much money the government takes in and how much it spends is one of the most fundamental responsibilities of Congress. To do this job responsibly, you need a budget and framework to determine spending. But only four times in the past 60 years has Congress passed a concurrent budget resolution and all spending bills necessary to fund the government on time.

    When Congress can't even meet the simple deadlines it sets for itself, it harms the American people's trust in the institution.

    That is why I am asking you to support No Budget, No Pay, which will be voted on in the House of Representatives on Wednesday, January 23. I ask this not only as one of your constituents but as a supporter of No Labels, a grassroots movement of hundreds of thousands of Democrats, Republicans and independents dedicated to bringing a new attitude of problem solving back to Washington.

    No Budget, No Pay simply states that if members of Congress canĺt pass a budget on time, they should not be paid.

    I strongly urge you to co-sponsor this important proposal, authored in the last Congress by Senator Dean Heller (R-NV) and Representative Jim Cooper (D-TN) and supported by a list of 90+ lawmakers in both houses of Congress.

    It's a common-sense proposal, endorsed by both Democrats and Republicans, that can make our government work better. I urge you not to let politics get in the way of problem solving -- please consider supporting No Budget, No Pay.

    Thank you,

    Sincerely,
    So if you are interested to sign the petition go here:

    No Chance, tell us what you really feel about the President...made up numbers used by CNN isn't valid and results in an automatic 10 points off your final grade. Peer-reviewed journal articles and published dissertations are the only valid forms of empirical evidence allowed. Anything else, you get an automatic "F" for failure on your opinion-based memo on the President.

    No it doesn't. It means a lot of people recognize that the state of the country is still not super positive as it's been in a recovery since the collapse heralded in by George W Bush.

    The people re-elected Obama, any attempt you're trying to make to say that the poll shows people deeply distrust Obama or his leadership fails pretty miserably on that basis alone.

    So you only approve of polls that agree with your point of view?

    Let me guess ... you only watch and read "news" that also only agrees with your point of view.

    Re: CNN Poll: Country split on how things are going

    I think if the poll had asked for party affiliation, it would have revealed that the ones who think the US is doing alright are predominately Democrat, saying so to support the President. Conversely, I think the nay-sayers were predominately Republican unhappy with the direction Obama wants to take us.

    From the poll:
    Among the entire sample, 34% described themselves as Democrats, 26% described themselves as Republicans, and 40% described themselves as Independents or members of another party.
