Our friend over at Pollster.com, Mark Blumenthal, took an in-depth look at a question on the NBC/WSJ poll done by Peter Hart and Bill McInturff in a post entitled “When Does Gravity Begin for Obama.”
President Obama: “What I’m looking at is not the date-to-day gyrations of the stock market…” Well, he should be. The Dow Jones Industrial Average has dropped more than 2,500 points and lost 27% of its value since November 5.
Wow, I had no idea so many Americans were as fixated on Duke University’s basketball team as I am, mesmerized by their resurgence (5-0) since the insertion of Freshman guard Elliot Williams into the starting line-up.
There’s a lot of interesting data in the NBC/WSJ poll, although much of it is good news for the Dems and sobering news for the GOP (there’s been so much sobering news the last four years I feel like drinking).
There’s been much discussion recently about President Obama’s high job approval and popularity, with most folks (wrongly) assuming his job approval numbers are extraordinarily high.
