In Contrast to Cnn poll, Pew Shows Stable Approval Rating for Obama

A new survey from Pew Research Center released Wednesday indicated that President Barack Obama has largely weathered the controversies that have consumed the country's attention as of late a far cry from a survey released earlier this week that showed his approval rating had dipped sharply.

The Pew poll showed that 49 percent of Americans approve of the job Obama is doing while 43 percent said they disapproved. Those numbers are virtually identical to Pew's poll in May, when 51 percent said they approved of the President's job performance and 43 percent said they disapproved.

While some pointed to the CNN/ORC numbers as evidence that Obama had been weakened by news of the Internal Revenue Service's targeting of conservative groups and the National Security Agency's sweeping surveillance programs, others such as polling expert Mark Blumenthal cautioned that the survey may have exaggerated the President's actual decline.

Glad the ignorance isn't as prevalent as cnn would have us believe.. and, those who passed it off as real news.

2. Oh, but doesn't "The Sky is Falling" sell more newspapers...?

And create discussion board drama?

CNN hasn't done terribly well lately--they are just a shade above Fauxsnooze, but that's not saying much.

16. Pew isn't ratings driven like CNN

CNN was once the epitome of excellent new coverage. Now it's just another pile of garbage trading on its former glory.

Hooray for Pew!
