More propping I assume.

On second look, why are they releasing a poll from more than a month ago?

You caught that too? No idea why they would release a poll from over a month ago....unless they wanted to prop him up a bit perhaps? The 8 people still watching CNN might not catch the fact the poll is old.

Seems it isn't their usual poll but something specific with regard to African Americans for Essence Magazine. They already released their monthly number for May at that time (5/14-15/09) and found 62/35 approve.

Listen man, stop sucking bill orielly's balls. You try to talk like him, and in your pathetic head you probably think you are him. CNN is the most trusted name in news= thats according to a PEW research poll, and they are watched the most for all major events. Oh yeah, Fox news rated dead last in that poll!

There's a reason CNN earns much more per ad than Fox News, and it's that their viewer demographic skews much more heavily towards the more lucrative young and middle aged professionals who don't tend to watch for long periods of time. Fox nearly doubles CNN's ratings in the US, but it's based heavily on older Americans (mainly republicans) who keep it on for much longer periods of time.

It's also the reason Fox bases its coverage largely on opinionated evening shows, versus strictly news coverage. There's an entertainment quality to their shows that simply can't be replicated by softer, less vitriolic liberal hosts.

But worldwide, CNN has no peer.
