Wyblog: Are 41% of Americans really this stupid?

According to this poll, yes. Or perhaps, as Chris notes, maybe it is not stupidity, but partisanship at work. Of course, if you are so partisan that you deny reality maybe you are just stupid.

But the Real Story is that 41% of Americans are so blindly partisan, and/or sand-poundingly stupid, they still believe Barry is doing a good job.

President Obama’s approval rating has hit the lowest level ever in CBS News polling, according to the latest CBS News/New York Times survey.

Just 41 percent of Americans approve of the job Mr. Obama is doing as president, according to the poll, conducted from March 7 to 11. Another 47 percent disapprove of his performance, up from 41 percent last month.

Perhaps the missing 12% are the folks Obama’s labor department refuses to count in their unemployment statistics. They’re inconvenient, so they’re invisible.

Whenever I see a poll like that I wonder one thing. Who the hell are these people who actually think Obama is doing a good job? What could possibly make them give the president a thumbs up? Again, as Chris says, it is stupidity or partisanship. There is no stat that anyone can find to indicate President Obama is doing well.
