A Grand Awakening?

I've always been reluctant to blog about public opinion polls, in that all too often they reflect more the desires of the pollsters or sponsors of the poll, than they do the vox populi.

If I put up a post about the latest CBS/CNN/NYT/ABC poll, chances are I'm doing so to illustrate just how manipulative and misleading these polls can be.


64% believe Obama should be president for life

Polling Internals (found on page 813 of the .pdf file buried under a dozen links):

Question #2,108: What is your party affiliation?

Democrat: 938
Republican: 212
Keg: 620

That said, I can't help but feel somewhat optimistic over these numbers.

Change: Obama’s approval rating hits new lows in Gallup and Rasmussen

If these numbers continue to trend the way they're doing now, it spells bad news for the Chicagobama Regime, and good news for the future of the United States of America - the key word being "trend", as in trendy.

In the weeks and months leading up to the 2008 election, the Obama logo was everywhere. It was more a fashion accessory than it was a political statement.

Face it. This time last year, it was "cool" to like Obama.

You didn't need to understand a lick about who he was, where he was from, why he was so popular, or what he believed in. All you needed was that logo pinned onto your messenger bag, or drawn on your t-shirt with red and blue Sharpies, and you were "in".

To speak critically of the man, this "Chosen One", was the most surefire way of getting get oneself excommunicated from the cool kids' table in the cafeteria.

Fast forward to July 2009.

These polling numbers have got to be triggering some serious trouser dumpage in the White House. The more the People learn about this fraudulent administration, and the purely socialistic ideology driving it, the more it's becoming "cool" to not like Obama.

And, that can only be a good thing. However, be warned...

Any measure of optimism you take from these recent polling results must be tempered with an equal or greater amount of vigilance.

If the tidal wave of public opinion and blind adoration that swept Obama into office has, in fact, crested and is on the verge of crashing on the rocks below, look out. It's going to get ugly.

These people are not going to go down quietly.

I shudder to think about what kind of strategy the Emanuel/Axelrod machine is cooking up to keep their power structure intact.

UPDATE: Jay G. opines...

I wonder what his numbers would look like if the media didn't treat him like he tap-danced on hot coals and shat ice cream...
