I recall in the 2006 midterm elections, the liberal media had a field day publicizing President George W. Bush’s low poll results. They played up his poor approval ratings and made sure everyone knew before the election just how much trouble the Republican Party was in trouble. Democrats gained ground in that election and paved the way for total Democratic victory in 2008.
Prior to the 2010 midterm elections, the same liberal mainstream media did their best to publicize any negative poll results they could find concerning Republicans. They didn’t advertise the negative polls over Obamacare and how a growing number of people were already growing unhappy with Obama and the Democrats for not listening to them. However, Republicans managed to regain control of House in the 2010 midterm elections, despite the overly biased media reporting.
Now the 2014 midterm elections are less than two months away and you really don’t hear hardly any news concerning major political polls. Wonder why?
ABC News/Washington Post recently conducted a poll and found that Obama had the lowest ratings since taking office in 2009. Only 43% responded that he was a strong leader while 55% said he was not a strong leader. Additionally, their poll showed that 52% said Obama’s presidency was a failure and only 42% said he was not a failure.
Even though it was ABC’s own poll, they failed to report it on their regular news. They pretty much hushed it up and swept it under the rug, so to say. CBS and NBC also failed to spend much time reporting their low numbers for Obama’s approval and performance. Instead, they mentioned other poll issues like foreign policy.
The liberal mainstream media doesn’t want Americans to know how poorly Obama has been doing in the polls. They fear it will impact the November elections and allow Republicans to gain ground and possibly take over control of the Senate.
Interestingly, a growing number of Democrats have been trying to distance themselves from Obama, his scandals and the controversy surrounding his immigration policy. Most Americans have indicated that they are against giving amnesty to the millions of illegal aliens. This is also why Obama has decided to wait to use his executive powers to grant amnesty until after the election.
If the American people heard the results of all of the different polls, it would most likely help sway their votes toward GOP candidates. What I don’t understand is why Republicans aren’t shouting these poll results from the rooftops and every other place they have an opportunity to shout from. They need to hammer the people with how poorly Obama and Democrats are being seen in the eyes of Americans. They need to let the masses know that Obama’s ratings have sunk to the lowest in 5 1/2 years and seem to be sinking lower each month. You know the mainstream media isn’t going to tell them.
