I certainly am an outlier here, Mr. Cuomo.  Have you taken a look at the endorsement map on the homepage of Atlas?  It's dominated by Democratic endorsements.  Simply being a Republican makes me an outlier on this left wing dominated site.

But that's not the only thing.  Not being a person who tracks someone's every move on Atlas every second (literally) using the Online Activity board also makes me an outlier from posters like yourself and others.

You seem be confused as to what the term "left wing" means.

I bet you're young. Try not to insult and look for answers (from people of various perspectives).

Because, as we all know, FOX is an unbiased, completely trustworthy network.

Fox's polling outlet (which is done through other firms) is not at all unreasonable.

I'm sure they have a hand in how the numbers turn out.  They are a propaganda outlet not a news network.

Perhaps you might want to actually look up the history of Fox News's polling before you accuse them of inventing statistical claims to advance an ideological claim.  Because if you were wrong it would be pretty ironic, no? Tongue

If you guys weren't clueless, you'd know that Fox News/Opinion Dynamics had consistently been leaning in Obama's favor according to Nate Silver.

Now, Fox News/Pulse is a different story.  They use a different pollster for their state polling.

Rasmussen Obama (National)

Approve 45%, +1.

Disapprove 53%, -1.

"Strongly Approve" is at 27%, +1.  "Strongly Disapprove" is at 44%, -1.

Skewed anti-Obama sample? 

Halloween approaches.  For Obama will it be a trick or a treat?

CNN is propaganda as well, it's all how you look at it. Any news station can spew out their biased garbage. Left-wing, right-wing etc...

For Obama, it is a treat.

Disapprove 52%, -1.

"Strongly Approve" is at 30%, +3.  "Strongly Disapprove" is at 43%, -2.

A bad Obama sample dropped off.

Obama gets a treat, but loses the House.  Smiley

Boo!

CNN was four-square behind George Worthless Bush until 2006. Which way does the wind blow? There you will find CNN.

American news media fear Karl Rogue as if he were a General Secretary of the Communist Party in a "socialist" state.

I don't care what you think about the man, but the fact is Bush had a very good first term. I support him less on his last 4 years, but overall I really like the man, and that liking comes especially from his first 4 years in office.

I'm getting his book for Xmas, and can't wait to read it.

To continue reading? I'm not religious at all. I'm an atheist/agnostic and hate the religious part of the GOP and is why I lean heavily liberal on societal issue. But I love foreign policy more. And I identify myself as fiscally conservative, too, so I line up with the Republicans - although I guess I'm a moderate by definition.

But there's something about Bush I really admire. His ability to change stances (against nation building in 2000 to promotion of democracies post 911) is admirable.

I just turned 13 in 2000, so I was too young to care, but after maturing the Wilsonian, Truman, and then Bush mentality has really appealed to me.

You can hate Bush's policies all you want. Even I think some were poorly executed.

But in my opinion, Bush was a real leader and that counts heavily in my mind considering the nation needed a leader.

This is where Obama has failed. Again, you can like or dislike his policies. I don't like them, of course. But whatever your opinion is on his policies, the fact is that he's a VERY POOR leader.

And for this reason alone, I'd pick Bush every time. History will judge him well. He's already getting more suppot. Just wait for 20 years down the line. Bush was a good president. And I feel bad for him and the unfair criticism he gets.

I was suggesting it'll be an easy read, so you'll have to find something to do the next day.

Hence, why I was teasing...

But in all likelihood, I'll buy it, I would love to see if the justification is more thoughtful and nuanced than it was when it was presented.

I'm not a fan of Bush (either social or foreign policy), but I will agree that Obama needs to be more forceful and determined.

I don't care if they had Obama's approval at 99%.  THEY. ARE. NOT. A. NEWS. ORGANIZATION.  PERIOD.

There actually are decent real journalists on Fox News... the prime-time headliners however, O'Reilly, Beck and Hannity all make a mockery of 'journalism"

Beck, for his part, does not claim to be a "journalist."

The audience doesn't realize this, though, and that's the most important piece.

Rasmussen Obama (National)

Approve 50%, +3.

Disapprove 49%, -3.

"Strongly Approve" is at 31%, +1.  "Strongly Disapprove" is at 42%, -1.

My guess is a good Obama sample; he last hit 50% in late September.
