That bounce will land flat as the oil hits more beaches and dredging approval his held up by govt beaurocracy!
Then again, he may throw $$ at FL since they voted blue in 2008.

I expect noise in the day-to-day numbers. It’s the 5- or 10-day average trend that’s the most telling.

Obama has a core constituency.

The overwhelming number of American Blacks (about 13% of the population)

Some portion of Hispanic Americans (at least 13% of the population)

Hard core Marxist Democrats (percent unknown)

Considering the above, he isn’t doing all that well.

When he decides he owns Big Oil like he owns GM, some folks will miss the added slap at Freedom and call him a hero.

Yep! He was down there in a high-pressure SCUBA suit with a gigantic Jacques Cousteau helmet shoveling mud into that hole!

What caused this bounce?

? Announcing a presser where he’d take questions [MSM reports in good light]

? Announcing he would forgo his scheduled Friday off to go to the Gulf [acting like an executive, zombies fawn]

? Marginalizing the conflicts reagrding Sestak [zombies applaud]

This is a rolling average—not sure if it’s a 3-day or a 5-day. I guess Obama had a not-so-bad polling day yesterday and a really bad polling day from 4 or 5 days ago dropped out.

Yes. The statistical variation comes from the number of marxists whose phones are cutoff due to non payment on any given day

Now that he has single handedly saved the world from total destruction by the big oil spill, he will get a giant bounce.

The media will make sure of that.

re: oil hits more beaches and dredging approval is held up by govt bureaucracy

And then the cost of gas starts to go up as the Summer driving season arrives, the effect of shutting down drilling on 30 plus Gulf rigs and the move against the Texas refineries by his EPA take hold.

These are not the kind of things an economy that’s on the verge of collapse, or recovery if you’re a liberal, needs to have piled on it.

I swear there is just no way to avoid coming to the conclusion that this man and his people are actively working to destroy this nation! I don’t think even rank stupidity, and Lord knows there’s plenty of that in Team Zero, can explain away the things they are doing, day after day.

And the saddest part, to me anyway, is that because they are in charge of all three branches of government, not to mention the MFM, there is absolutely no one to guard the hen house. The wolves are in charge and they’re running wild throughout the farm yard.

God, literally, help us to get through what they’ve done, are doing and plan to do between now and 2012. At the risk of sounding like the Boy Who Cried Wolf, we simply MUST sound the alarm as the 2010 elections approach. It might well be our last chance to get our country back without the kind of things NO ONE wants to contemplate.

You made a speculative and unsubstantiated conclusion and HerrBlucher asked you a very legitimate inquiry.

I was simply agreeing with his statement with a bit of sarcasm.

If you have any bonafide evidence of why Obama got this so-called “expected bounce”, I like to see it. Untill that time I’ll conclude it’s statistical noise.

Correct. Most likely statistical noise...otherwise known as a deadcat bounce or some other similar garbage in polls.

I posted as if people were familiar with yesterday’s thread, but I’ll be sure to dumb it down in the future for everyone that is so anal they can’t be civil in a forum.

BTW: this is on the edge of statistical noise:

The margin of sampling error—for the full sample of 1,500 Likely Voters--is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence."

22-16 = 6%. So it was over by 3% one day and under by 3% the next. Unless we are in the 5% of the confidence level...which is bad juju :-)

Someone last evening used the MFM in place of the MSM and I couldn’t agree more! I don’t recall who it was and I shouldn’t have used it until I made the effort to look back and find out and attributed it to them. My apologies to that person!

Good post.

What caused this bounce?

? Announcing a presser where he’d take questions [MSM reports in good light]

? Announcing he would forego his scheduled Friday off to go to the Gulf [acting like an executive, zombies fawn]

? Marginalizing the conflicts regarding Sestak [zombies applaud]

None of the above, all Obongo said was that “It’s BP’s fault” the idiot electorate felt that was enough to get back in good graces with the Kenyon.

It’s unfortunate that you feel the need to continue to call me names. But that appears to be a personal issue on your part.

You stated that it was a bounce but gave no reason for this alleged “bounce”. Several others (myself included) say it’s statistical noise meaning one really bad day for Obama dropping off and a pretty good day taking it’s place, but purely statistical.

I am still waiting for your reasoning as to what caused this “bounce”.

I’m sorry that a modestly snarky comment seemed to hit a nerve and draw your vitriol. But there is no excuse for name calling. Grow up.

If the up side of his bounces is -16, and the low is at -22 then we know he is actually around -19. There is always going to be statistical noise, +/- 3 points is the stated amount, and a -22 to -16 swing corresponds with that level of uncertainty.

I think that his announcement of sending troops to the border fooled some independent voters who were mad about the Calderon fiasco and helped his polls a bit.
