Finally, some new polls!

Rasmussen is doing daily tracking, you guys should post those numbers too.

Bush's dissapproval is the highest ever for a sitting president.

Tybo:

you listed but did not post rasmussens' numbers.

Is this because they were less favorable?

Yeah Tybo, you've figured Pollster out. This is just like how they posted all those national polls that only showed Obama ahead by about 7 points, and NEVER showed a national poll with McCain leading, not even ONCE! Talk about liberal media bias. I know pollster is in the tank for Obama, but constantly posting all of those polls showing him with 7 point leads, even though he actually *DID* win the national vote by 7 points, was just crazy. Even though there may not have been a favorable McCain poll (other than TIPP) Pollster should've AT LEAST been unbiased enough to make one up for McCain. Because that's what fair and balanced people such as Fox News and Rush Limbaugh do-- they make things up (even poll numbers) so that everyone (republicans) has a fair shot.

But on a serious note, if you're going to hint that Pollster only posted this because the numbers were more favorable to Obama/less favorable to Bush, then why not point out that this poll shows Palin's favorability rating higher than most polls conducted over the past month, which have shown her favorables to be in the high 30's. I guess that would actually require being able to read and remember things, though. Curse my memory for being in the tank for Obama!

Tybo: Be careful when using "doofus". It's a risky word to use, and can turn around to bite you back. In fact, before you know it, people might just think that *you*, Tybo, are the doofus. ;)

To get to the point, you said, "er, bush isn't in this poll doofus", while the original Pollster post said, "Also: 68% disapprove of the way Bush is handling his job as President."

Again, I'd advise against jumping the gun to make a post calling someone else a "doofus". In fact, Pollster even makes it more difficult to do that, with their button that says (and I quote), "Post an intelligent and civil comment".

I'm sure you were just having a bad evening. There. I think I've met the "intelligent and civil" criteria. :)

Have a good evening.
