Poll question: Best guesstimate on what chimpy's REAL poll numbers are>>Poll
I don't believe ANY poll whatsoever. If the truth were really known, my guess is that **'s numbers are in the 20's. What do you think??

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. The poll numbers are pretty accurate.
City-folk may not believe it, but us small-town people see unconditional support for the criminals every day.

4. Polls are a guesstimate.
My view? Polls are a guesstimate of the IQ range for those in the approval category. You need to double the IQ rating to see what segment of the population is in favor of the candidate, policy, whatever. A 55% approval rating means you have the faith and confidence of everybody with an IQ in the range from 0 (I call them the KKK republicans) to 110. The margin of error is plus or minus 15 points. So with a an approval rating of 55 you have a receptive audience in the -15 (people who were intended to be reincarnated as rocks, but got put in the wrong cosmic line. These people, sadly, usually vote republican.) to 125 IQ points. Now let's take Chimpy's recent poll numbers and average them out. My feline consultant just coughed up a hair ball that kind of resembles the number 36. The reading of feline hair balls, by the way, is an excellent prognostication tool; but that is the subject of another post. So, according to my methodology Bush enjoys the support of those with a IQ in the -15 to 87 range. Yup. Sounds about right.

:P

6. Oh, they surely do mean something.
And much more reliable than reading tea leaves or chicken entrails. I'm waiting for the happy day that one of my darlings hacks up one resembling a saint, pope or religious figure. I can't wait to hawk that one on Ebay. For Sale: One hair ball in the shape of Saint Durah's holy figure.
