"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Newsweek Claims Obama Numbers "Jumped Substantially" While Gallup Notes New Lows for Obama


More proof that Newsweek now has less worth than the Sears Catalog did in the 1890s.


"Despite doom-saying about Democrats’ chances in the midterms, the latest NEWSWEEK Poll (full results) shows that they remain in a close race with Republicans 12 days before Election Day, while the president’s approval ratings have climbed sharply." [...] "President Obama’s approval ratings have jumped substantially, crossing the magic halfway threshold to 54 percent, up from 48 percent in late September, while the portion of respondents who disapprove of the president dropped to 40 percent, the lowest disapproval rating in a NEWSWEEK Poll since February 2010."

Right... And that's why Gallup's most recent poll, reported on Oct. 21, shows Obama's approval ratings steadily decreasing to an all new low.


"Barack Obama averaged 44.7% job approval during the seventh quarter of his presidency. His average approval rating has declined each quarter since he took office, falling by more than two percentage points in the most recent quarter to establish a new low.

"These results are based on Gallup Daily tracking surveys conducted from July 20-Oct. 19, including interviews with more than 90,000 Americans. The seventh quarter included Obama's new low three-day average approval rating of 41% in mid-August. His approval rating has recovered somewhat since then, with his latest three-day average at 46% for Oct. 17-19 interviewing.

[...]

"Obama's decreased popularity is also evident in his favorable rating, updated in an Oct. 14-17 Gallup poll. For the first time, more Americans view the president unfavorably (50%) than favorably (47%), and his favorable rating is the lowest of his presidency.

[...]

"The Oct. 14-17 Gallup poll also finds that, at this point in his presidency, 39% of Americans believe Obama deserves re-election and 54% say he does not. Earlier this year, between 46% and 48% of Americans said Obama should be re-elected."

Newsweek is more pathetic then Nancy Pelosi-- I mean at least it's her job to look confident even in the face of a Republican takeover of the House. But Newsweek (as the name implies) is supposed to be a news magazine.

Epic failure Newsweek. No one believes you. And a special "are you kidding me!?" award to MSN.com for prominently featuring Newsweek's partisan fantasy (top billing in their news section) on their homepage.
