Gallup: POTUS gets highest approval for fiscal cliff negotiations.

This graph from http://pollingreport.com/ does a better job depicting this survey than does the Gallup website.

It appears the public just ain't buying what Boehner is trying to sell. If negotiations crash and burn, they'll likely blame the GOP.

2. Obama should bring that when he meets one-on-one with Boehner

"Mr. Speaker you might be wondering why my chair is raised up to a level where I am towering over you, well that is because I have set the chair heights according to this graph."

6. Gallup being wrong on the Presidential election

does not mean they are always wrong.

The likely voter business is not applicable here.

7. I agree

In this case, Gallup's polling matches other pollsters and the President's overall approval ratings. If a poll doesn't seem to be highly flawed or an outlier, I think it's fair to discuss the results.

5. Who forced you to read this "Gallup" thread and respond to it?

Thanks for the "kick," by the way. We'll put you down in the "pro-censorship" column.

I don't usually put much faith in Gallup either, but the gap in this poll is so huge between POTUS and GOP that, even coming from Gallup, it makes a noteworthy statement about how the public views the various players in the fiscal cliff debate.

If you disagree, feel free to hide this post.

8. One thing I can say though

is how I try not to buy into an organisation that make it's living on mischaracterization.

To each its own.
