Posted on 03/08/2011 9:13:59 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
President Barack Obamas approval and favorable polling numbers will be tested and released each week in a new polling partnership formed between the Service Employees International Union and Daily Kos, a liberal online community.
The polling, conducted by Democratic firm Public Policy Polling, will be published each Tuesday on dailykos.com and feature testing on Congress, the generic Congressional ballot, Obamas re-election and the two major political parties. Polling on key races will also be conducted, according to a press release announcing the partnership.
Rather than sit around and have know-nothing pundits and politicians in DC tell us what the American people think, we prefer to ask them directly, Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas said in a statement. And this partnership will allow us to conduct significantly more polling than any other media organization in the country.
The SEIU has 2.2 million members in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. It spent $10 million in independent expenditures to support Democratic candidates last cycle, according to the Sunlight Foundation.
This partnership helps our members continue their efforts to improve the lives of workers and their families and create a more just and humane society, SEIU National Political Director Brandon Davis said.
Objectivity if I ever saw it
I bet the polls are skewed in the Kenyan’s favor.
Or, MORE accurately:
Rather than sit around and have know-nothing pundits and politicians in DC tell us what the American people think, we prefer to directly tell the American people what they think!”
No by golly, none of this sitting around having that damn reality thrown into their faces. They are done with that nonsense!
They are beyond help, they do not have the capacity to be educated out of communism disguised as "liberalism and progressiveness." They can not or refuse to see the destructive nature of the communism disguised as "liberalism and progressiveness" they promote.
What the supporters of communist "liberalism and progressiveness" will destroy is the very nation that gave them their freedom. They will complain, demonize, belittle and protest when opposed but only preserving this Republic in its original context will continue to give them their freedom to complain and protest against it.
They will not stop destroying this nation of their own accord.
The only way to preserve freedom for American Citizens in this Republic is suppression of the communist supporters.
AKA an echo chamber.
That’s exactly what I was thinking.
