The Meaningless Poll

After eight years of president Bush, we now have polls showing that most Americans think the country is headed in the wrong direction. (here, here, here) From the reports on this particular poll, one would think that most Americans are ready to vote in a leftest government that will put us on the B line to a EU type socialist nanny state. But those with a little bit of political savvy see these polls for what they are; propaganda.

These polls are designed to capitalize on eight years of negative press. The polls would infer that since Bush is president and therefore leader, and Bush is a Republican and so therefore conservative, and a Christian to boot, and the people are unhappy with the direction he has taken us, then the American people want a Democrat who is liberal and secular, and so should you! What the poll really reveals however is akin to people on a bus. A forth of the people are angry because the bus is headed northeast, a forth because it isn't headed west, another forth because they're not happy with the catering, leaving those that consider any direction but west a good thing.

If the polls were actually worth anything besides a platform for propaganda, conservatives could take solace in the historically low approval ratings of this current leftist congress. Lest a right winger be tempted he should consider that the left is causing this. The left does not approve of this congress because Bush is not impeached, and he Cheney and Rove are not behind bars.

Alas we can expect more of the same as Election Day approaches. There will be polls on homelessness, the fear of homelessness, latent racism, poverty, health care, sickness, pollution and basically all the other things that have always dogged mankind. And we can expect for the networks, under the guise of objectivity, to continue to take any opportunity to blame Bush and prostitute themselves as they increase the underlying message and goal of their reporting, which is Obama in 08.

Great post! I keep telling myself that all the hooplah is smoke and mirrors...and from the looks of the polls it is just that. Bush needs to fight against the machine better, but my gut tells me he is tired and ready to call it a term. Americans are wishy washy and spoiled. Let's hope something will certainly won't be the media. :)N

this election is going to polarize this country, and it's going to get uglier as the elections approach.

I always wonder about these polls. I can't recall ever getting polled.

I agree Nikki. I think he is exhausted from putting up the good fight and ready to call it a day.

I think history will look differently on his adminsitration in decades to come.. unlike Carter's.

Nikki, I once thought that McCain could pull this off with out one republican voting. I'm not so sure now, though he will have to do it without a block of them. In the end I nervously expect dems to put McCain over.

Incog Ive never been polled either. My mom tells me that shes polled all the time. She's a registered Republican as of late and until even later very influenced by the media. She was always my bellwether until she started scratching her head and asking what in the hecks going on here. I did answer the phone for her once while there and took the poll. I gave all my answers as if I was a far out off the scale kook fringe progressive liberal. I suppose I fell into that three percent inaccuracy rating they give themselves.

Dan Dan, Still enjoy swinging by to see what my old friend has to say. Seems the Obama disciples are more interested in what government can do for them, rather than what they can do for themselves. Also, Psalm 146:3 "Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no hope"

Hope all is well with you and the family.
