Proof O'Reilly Spins The Obama Job Ratings
By: Steve - December 7, 2010 - 11:00am
Before I show what a biased right-wing lying idiot O'Reilly is, look at what he said on Tuesday November 23, 2010. O'Reilly said this:
O'REILLY: A new Zogby poll says President Obama's approval rating is now 39%; it's the first time the President has fallen below the dreaded 40% line. And there's no question the airport security mess is hurting the President. People who fly often are furious and once again a national problem is vexing the Obama administration.
The O'Reilly spin was that the Obama job approval rating keeps going down and down and down, and now it's down to 39%, based on that one poll by Zogby. But what he failed to report is that the Daily Presidential Gallup Tracking Poll shows no such drop, none, no drop at all.
In fact, Gallup just put out a new report on December 7th, 2010, that says the Obama Job Approval Rating Has Been Holding Steady Since The Midterm Elections. Which is the exact opposite of what O'Reilly has been saying.
Here is the report:
PRINCETON, N.J. -- President Barack Obama's job approval rating has held steady in the mid-40% range since the midterm elections last month. His average rating for the week leading up to the midterms was 45%, and it has remained close to that, including a 46% rating for the week of Nov. 29-Dec. 5.
And not only that, they also say the Obama job rating stability after a mid-term election loss is better than most Presidents. The report also says this:
The stability in Obama's rating since the midterm elections is notable. Most presidents whose parties suffered heavy losses in the midterms saw their average approval ratings fall after the midterm elections through the end of the year, including George W. Bush (down three percentage points in 2006), Bill Clinton (down four points in 1994), and Gerald Ford (down eight points in 1974).
Just look at this chart, the Obama job approval is actually up 1 point since the mid-term elections.
And that shows the opposite of what O'Reilly is saying. O'Reilly is saying the Obama job approval rating is going down and down, when it has actually went up 1 percentage point since the mid-term election.
Look at this chart, it also shows that the Obama job approval rating is holding steady, with all 3 political groups.
These numbers and charts prove that Bill O'Reilly is a biased right-wing liar. It proves that O'Reilly lies about the Obama job approval numbers to make him look bad. Because the Obama job approval numbers have not dropped at all in the last month.
While every other night O'Reilly is telling his viewers that the Obama job approval numbers have dropped even more. When there has not been a drop, and in fact, his approval went up in that time.
