There is soemthing seriously wrong with a poll when more people say Biden is more qualified than Romney to be president. This must be CNN doing its normal push polling for the left.

Biden..............gimme a break.

Yeah, I can see how 30+ years in the Senate, being one of the foremost experts on foreign affairs, and no to mention being the sitting vice-President makes Biden less qualified as the potential President than Romney - the man so incapable of dealing with stress that he strapped the family dog on the roof of the car during the family vacation. Good call, Stillow.

I think there is nothing wrong. Its purely reflective of Romeny's poor presidential polling numbers.

But in defense of Romney, fewer people think he is not qualified than Biden. And also look to see that they are within the margin of error.

Biden anyways should be qualified to be president. He's vice president and obviously passed the smell test in the race in which everyone saw his verbal gaffes.

Romney had more than enough verbal gaffes (Who let the dogs out?) too, the guy is as oblivious as Biden when it comes to them.

Sorry guys I ain't buying this one. Biden? Is it April's fools day? If Biden were president it would only encourage our enemies to invade us.....................

Biden....someone ask him hwo the indians are doing at 7/11.....

lol Romney strapped the family dog to the roof of his car? I never heard that one but looked it up. Man that takes the cake.

Nah X, Biden Indian slurs at 7/11 was the best....if that were a republican who said that, he'd been booted out of the country.

What was funny htough was when Romney's son called him with the Arnold sound board during the campaign.....that cracked me up!

You get both a hilariously unfortunate situation with Romeny's dog and the verbal gaffe in which I can't believe he said, "PETA is unhappy about my dog having fresh air."

2 jokes 1 moron Biden at least ignores gaffes, Romney makes 2 more explaning the first.

So basically this poll shows that Americans think Palin is qualified to strap an animal to the roof of her car, and little else.

Regardless of the results, this isn't a
"push poll". A push poll is designed to do just that "push" people towards voting one way, typically by making thousands of calls and asking things like "How will you vote? Would it change your mind if you learned that Candidate X is a suspected serial killer who supports a daily flag burning cermony on the capitol steps?".

Who are the people who thought Obama was qualified to be president? As we can see from his performance so far, on the job training isn't conducive to getting things done.

Heheheh, you crack me up! That is a great point.

The people who thought Obama was qualified, you can see them on youtube, they are the ones who think Obama is going to pay off there car and house for them. They are the ones who are still waiting for that magic check to appear in the mail from Obama.....

@ FM

You, of course, are aware that over a majority of Americans approve of Obama and rate his job performance highly. These are facts. I realize they are an inconvenience for your preconceived narrative, but just breathe deeply, turn the volume up on Fox news, and you'll be able to escape from reality once again.

Field Marshal:

@Boomshak,

Yup, the same people who voted for him, approve of his job performance. He has not won over a single republican or indie voter whom didn't vote for him. That's a fantastic success!

Secondly, if Palin was elected, she would probably also have at least the people who voted for her, which would be a majority, however slim. Does that make her qualified, being elected?

platanoman:

Because he has not won a single Republican or Indie who didn't vote for him that makes him a failure? LOL I wonder what you call GWB who lost support from his own party? Nice one, Field Marshall.

____________________

Field Marshal:

I wouldn't judge it a success. Plus, we are talking about being qualified for prez. If Palin isn't qualified, which i do not think she is, than Obama is clearly not qualified, and judging by his performance so far, he obviously wasn't. If Boomshak turned off NBC news and read something about Obama that wasn't approved propaganda from the administration, breathed deeply, he would come to reality and realize just that.

@FM - I don't live in the US (or Canada) and I don't even own a TV, so it looks like your attempt to pin me down failed. Seems like my Fox News quip hit a little too close to home. Once again, deep breaths, buddy.
