Mitch McConnell 'Team' Claiming President Obama Ordered PPP To Fake Polls

_______________

tweeted by, Joe Sonka ‏@joesonka (Staff writer at LEO Weekly. KY politics - http://barefootandprogressive.com)

In the @Team_Mitch email, they imply President Obama himself ordered @ppppolls to release fake poll results that make McConnell look bad

Poll Finds Mitch McConnell Is The Most Unpopular Senator In The Country


Mitch McConnell is the most unpopular Senator in the country. Only 37% of Kentucky voters approve of him to 55% disapprove. Both in terms of raw disapproval (55%) and net approval (-18) McConnell has the worst numbers of any of his peers, taking that mantle from Nebraska's Ben Nelson.

McConnell is predictably very unpopular with Democrats (23/73). But his numbers are almost as bad with independents (33/58) and even with Republicans he's well below the 70-80% approval range you would usually expect for a Senator within their own party (59/28).

9. Very true. With this bunch, if they are accusing you of doing it ...

they're probably doing it themselves.

3. I love how Barack Obama is everything to the right

 

He is both an incompetent rube and an evil mastermind.

He is both a radical liberation theology Christian and an evil Muslim.

He was never born in the US or even if he was his father wasn't so he can't be a natural born citizen.

If you listen to their bullshit long enough, you'll get whiplash!

18. He's also Superman and the founding fathers all rolled into one.

 

How else could he have done all they credit him with? It's not as if he had a compliant Congress working alongside him.

4. Obama doesn't need faked polls to make McConnell look bad ...

the human turtle is doing quite well on his own.

He really needs to poke his head out of his shell once in awhile.

5. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand yet he keeps gettin' put back in office.

Explain THAT one to me. I would think that sooner or later, even a not-so-calculated Republican vendetta has got to wear thin on even the most hardened of FauxBots.

8. Like Jon Stewart said...

...on this past Monday's "The Daily Show" in regards to McConnell's attempt to make Harry Reid look bad, which failed spectacularly and ended up with Mcconnell filibustering his own bill, or, as Jon put it, "sitting on his own balls so hard that he broke Claire McCaskill's neck" (neck injury due to the whiplash from a Senator proposing a bill, then soon after filibustering it.)

10. Does that Kentucky approval/disapproval rate translate into ending his Senate career?

Or, will they send this evil corrupt bastard back and inflict him on the nation again? Any Kentuckians have a feel for this?

15. Question: Who is this all-powerful Obama, and why does this guy have it out for McConnell?

Answer: He's another fantasy Obama that doesn't really and this is nothing but pure projection coming from the very same person who said that the number one priority of the Republican party was to make sure that Obama never got elected to a second term.

Paranoia is an ugly thing to look at in a grown adult.

20. We can hope, but I'm not optimistic.

We've tried for years in KY to "ditch Mitch." Hasn't happened yet. The Turtle is bulletproof, apparently. THAT'S A FIGURE OF SPEECH, PEOPLE!!

21. Even the PRESIDENT has better approval ratings IN KENTUCKY!!

This is a cautiously good sign. But KY (my state) is still notoriously red. More and more like Mississippi every day ...
