9/10-14, 4,742 likely voters, 1.5% margin of error
Obama Job Approval
49% Approve, 50% Disapprove (chart)
Independents: 46 / 54 (chart)
This proves there was no bump for Obama.

Sure there was. If you just clicked on Zogby link for the story you would see that the headline is:
"Survey Finds Obama Gets a Boost From Democratic Base Supporters and Independents". Last number for Obama from this less than reputable pollster was 42%.

People were making a cast that there was no bump for Obama? I thought it was conventional wisdom that there was a definite bump. Even Rasspublican has Obama narrowing the gap in their ridiculous "approval index."

Averaged out, there's been a bump of 6.5 percentage points.
Also, Zogby is the most ridiculous pollster in the world. Who conducts surveys online and tries to pass them off as legitimate? It's like taking facebook polls at face value.

Whoever can read should be able to see this and understand that it is internet based. It is delusional to understand this, and yet take solace in its results. It is obvious that Doctors, and thinking American adults agree that reform is needed, and at least a public Option and at best Medicare for all.

The scew is in surveying likely voters which is sort of confusing for an approval rating. Dumb actually.

Zogby online polls are garbage. His phone polls aren't bad, but if there's a ridiculous outlier in a set of results, you can usually bet that it's a Zogby Interactive.
