Daily Kos pulls Obama's Job Approval Numbers



June 18, 2010 – Comments (3) | RELATED TICKERS: BP

Interestingly, as a way to gauge what the public thinks of President Obama I relied on Gallup + Rasmussen + Daily Kos (technically it was Realclear Politics).

Those 3 numbers often disagreed with eachother dramatically.

If I wanted to see President Obama's Job Approval show up well above 50% I could do it with a touch of a button.... Just Left Click on my Daily Kos link and lo and behold there it was.... Obama's job approval at 54% or so.

Even if Gallup and Rasmussen were showing numbers closer to 45%,    an easy fix to that was to log onto Daily Kos and lo and behold... Obama's low approval FIXED!!!!! Miraculously FIXED!!!

The perfect cure for Obama's presidency was DAILY KOS!   Just 1 left click with the mouse and log onto Daily Kos and home!  54% approval!!!!  YOU ROCK  BARACK!!

Now...*sigh*.....  Daily Kos has apparently pulled Realclear Politics Job Approval Numbers from their home page..... I am not sure they list these numbers anywhere on their website.

What's wrong Daily Kos?   Isn't Barack the Awesomest president of the whole wide world evah!!!!????

oops....hmm... Maybe all of the job losses stacked on top of eachother and the impending disaster that will be the JUNE employment numbers have finally spooked Markous Moulitsas enough to not bother showing the Approval numbers anymore?

Either that or  Realclear Politics is no longer showing Obama above 50%?

Well.... before I take a look let's just log onto Real Clear Politics website and see where Obama is at?

Daily Kos fired RCP for having too strong of a Democratic bias after Nate at issued his uberinfluential pollster ratings.

Since did "Too Strong a Democratic Bias" and "Daily Kos" suddenly become a problem?

Daily Kos *IS* Democratic Bias blog.....  Good Grief....  And they pulled their own biased job approval polling service numbers?

That makes NOOOOOOOO  sense what-so-ever.  Sorta like Rush Limbaugh firing the Heritage Foundation for not supporting a more balanced view on politics and the economy.

Research 2000, not RCP. Oops. I took your misreporting as fact. Anyway, here it is straight from DailyKos.
