GALLUP: PUBLIC DISTRUST OF MEDIA WAY UP

According to Gallup, the public’s distrust in the “news” media is at an all time high. Geez … Why would that be? Perhaps it’s related to their habit of lying to us all the time. Ya think? So now, nearly two-thirds of the public just doesn’t believe what they say: Americans’ distrust in the media [...]

NYT POLL: TWO-THIRDS OF AMERICANS WANT THE SUPREMES TO SLAM DUNK OBAMACARE

Remember when the President, his Democrat accomplices and the “news” media told us that ObamaCare would get more and more popular once the public learned about its many “benefits”? Well, I guess the pubic failed to get the memo: More than two-thirds of Americans hope the Supreme Court will overturn some or all of the [...]

POLL: DEM SUPPORT FOR OCARE SHRINKS 20%

The latest Kaiser health tracking poll shows that fewer Americans favor ObamaCare than ever. Even more startling, the latest decline was driven by Democrats:  The October health tracking poll finds a more negative overall public mood about the health reform law, driven largely by changes in support for the law among Democrats. Democrats? Yep, a 20% dive in [...]

RASMUSSEN: PIZZA 43, ARUGULA 41

That’s right. The latest survey shows Cain up by two on Obama. Is the former still a long shot? Perhaps. But remember that Obama has 100% name recognition and Cain is still not very well known to a lot of folks. And yet: At the moment, the Georgia businessman is the only Republican with a [...]

CBS POLL: HERMAN CAIN TIED WITH ROMNEY

According to a new poll from CBS News, Herman Cain has “the Big Mo,” as the senior Bush famously phrased it. A couple of weeks ago he was in the caboose with Ron Paul, et al. Now he’s tied with the establishment’s favorite candidate (and sure loser), Mitt Romney: Herman Cain has moved into a tie [...]

CNN POLL: OBAMACARE JUST AS UNPOPULAR AS IT WAS A YEAR AGO

Remember when all those ObamaCare supporters kept telling us (and themselves) that ”reform” would become more and more popular once the voters discovered all the cool stuff buried in its 2,700 pages?  Oops! According to that hive of wingnuts and Tea Partiers at CNN, it’s just as unpopular now as it was a year ago, when the President [...]

GALLUP POLL: AMERICANS RANK REAGAN AS GREATEST PRESIDENT

In case you were wondering why the “news” media and other Democrats have been so anxious to associate Obama with Reagan, despite the intrinsic absurdity of the comparison, here’s the answer: Ahead of Presidents Day 2011, Americans are most likely to say Ronald Reagan was the nation’s greatest president. Here’s the list: [ht Doug Powers]

40% OF DOCS TO BAIL IF OCARE IMPLEMENTED

Back in 2009, an IBD/TIPP poll showed that 4 in 9 doctors would consider leaving their practice or taking an early retirement if ObamaCare or anything like it passed. In March of 2010, NEJM published a survey showing similar physician attitudes. Now,  9 months after the “reform” bill was shoved down America’s throat, a new survey conducted by [...]

OBAMACARE SUPPORTERS TRY TO POLISH … WELL … A THING THAT JUST WON’T SHINE

Since the midterms, ObamaCare supporters in the “news” media have spent a lot of time trying to convince us that the new health care law is popular. Many, for example, produced giddy articles and posts about the risible McClatchy-Marist poll that I wrote about last week. Michael Cannon believes this is a sign that they are nervous [...]

MORE BS FROM THE MSM ON OBAMACARE

Well, they’re consistent. You have to give them that. No matter how much evidence we get of ObamaCare’s unpopularity,  the “news” media continue to tell us that the public likes “reform”: A majority of Americans want the Congress to keep the new health care law or actually expand it, despite Republican claims that they have a mandate from the [...]
